Seal training is brutal. There is only a small fraction of men who can do what they do. God bless them all!

Beautiful. This thread reminds me sometimes how much that is beautiful and charming we are missing in the present society. I forgot who said, "Beauty needs no excuse to exist." Just look at the clothes people wear to store and airports. Not often can I say, "What a beautiful outfit." That includes my clothes. Not being super skinny, I have a difficult time finding attractive, everyday outfits. Appreciation of beauty is overlooked in our schools. Excuse the rant. But this has bothered me. Everybody have a great week.

I am heading for a trip out of state. I have come to dislike flying, but cannot avoid it.

Prrecious opening and poetry..Thank you!

With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
And sings."

Good morning, SJB.

I stole borrowed my tagline from Mother Teresa.
It seemed to convey my feelings much of the time.

How is the new enterprise doing?

Wishing you a delightful Monday.

I know what you mean, Jane, about the clothes women (and men) wear to the store or airport. Self esteem and pride in doing the best with what you have seems to be missing.

I remember when the First Ladies would never go into public without being ‘gussied up’ to the n-th! But now we have a First Lady (?) who thinks “FRUMP” is ok.

I never even go to the post office without putting on a little makeup, fixing my hair, and wearing a decent outfit. (If I didn’t look my nicest, I would surely run into someone I hadn’t seen in a long time, and I could just ‘hear’ her whisper to her friend, “Did you see YORKIE? Boy has she let HERself go!”)

I went out in public once (many years ago) with (gasp) rollers in my hair - and ended up on National Television. I learned my lesson that day!

All the patriotic breakfast choices sound wonderful, JOHNN.

If it isn’t too late to order breakfast, I think I’ll have the “All American”.

Joining you in celebrating our military .... “The best of the best!”

Braelyn Raigh says "I love Baby Day and Spring."
This was made with her other birthday pictures in March!
I wish I could tell you what a happy baby she is!

Luv, I had to run out a few minutes ago and I stopped by Subway and ordered a hot meatball sandwich with melted pepper jack cheese and it was sooooo delicious! One thing I can say about Subway, their food is always good. And its not too expensive either! I picked up one of their chocolate chip cookies and will enjoy that in a few minutes!

Lovely poem, fish hawk! Thank you!

I read where May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii. I clicked on the graphic and the page said, “Sorry, this is not available.” And that was the only one I could find.

Is it true that May Day is Lei Day?
