A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day......Oct 29-30 -07....Military Tribute
Billie, The Mayor

Posted on 10/28/2007 7:31:03 PM PDT by The Mayor







A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I could no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I have been including them here as I receive enough to make another collage.
I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why we've created a place for just that. This is a friendly room in JimRob's house where FReeper FRiends can gather every day and just say hello if that's all they want to do.
We have featured different FReepers, with a little background information on who they are and what makes them who they are, along with a few photos you might not have seen on other threads; sometimes others write an essay for us to post as the feature for the day; sometimes our presentation is a human interest story found elsewhere that you might not have read; sometimes special holiday threads; but whatever the topic of the day, it is always with FR's Finest in mind and that is YOU!
Every Monday we post the photos of FR's Military Personnel that I have collected and put into groups; these will be available to view through a link the remainder of the week - every day just a click away. :)   If you would like to add a photo of yourself or a loved one in the military, past or present, please let me know; I will hold it until I have enough for a new group.
Thank you, and please have fun with us...every day!

Beautiful, as usual, Megs! I love eagles!....and I’ve never
seen one in the wild. We don’t have anything tall enough for
them to nest in around my area! LOL!

Thank you, LUV I was so happy when I found that picture....I would love to see an eagle in the wild,too..

I am thrilled when I see a red tailed hawk around here..I had a juvenile perch in one of my trees a couple of times.

We get hawks out in the country...but I am overrun by doves
and grackles at the house. Nasty buncha birds!

My doves aren’t a problem..They “roost” away from the patio area.and so far the grackles haven’t found my yard, thank goodness...I did see my first carolina wren in awhile..I’m waiting on “new” arrivals to appear.Still have my usual bunch of birds and the mockingbird now appears because of my red youpon berries.

My holly bushes didn’t have 10 berries on them this year.

I think the very late freeze we had messed them up. I always
love the color of them in the fall and winter.
