I’m looking forward to cool and crisp fall days . . .
But, I sure will miss the flowers of summertime ! ! !
Linking up with Mosaic Monday at Little Red House
I snapped this photo last week as our local National Guard
was deploying to Kuwait for a year of duty.
This young lad tugged at my heartstrings as he held his Dad in a deathgrip.
I posted it on Facebook for all the participants to view and was contacted by
his Mom. Her identification of their son made it even more special.
Please support your local soldiers and their families!!!

I love the look on this little girl’s face . . . she was looking at Santa Claus!
This little girl was also looking at “Santa”.
Looks like everything worked out all right ! ! !
This may be the oddest post in blogger history!
Yes, these two photos are Deer “Derrieres” or at least they were. . .
I talked to a great couple who had a taxidermy business Friday . . .
No, they did not “kill” these animals, he preserves dead animals. . .
I think I appreciate a “twisted” sense of humor ! ! !
because these stopped me in my tracks and I just had to find out
if they were what I thought they were . . . yep . . . that is what they were
If anyone is interested, contact me and I’ll email you his info.
His work was really beautiful.
Now for the fun stuff. . .
You know that I love photographing people,
young or old, it doesn’t matter to me, I think everyone is
beautiful in their own unique way...
Here are some people who stopped by our Republican Booth at
the county fair Friday night. . .

of hours (bottom right man in middle)

visit with everyone ! ! !

The world’s best salesman works here . . . Ask for Justin ! ! !
Discovery Park of America . . . a world class museum is being
constructed right here in our little town ! ! !
We gave away an American Flag and a Tennessee Flag every night ! ! !
This little fella got really unhappy when the tractor pull started . . .

This is a link that I’m adding for more information about this deployment.
Our local National Guard Unit deployed this morning to Kuwait

Through quite a few tears
For the families and soldiers that were there
