Once again these photos prove the hours that both of these men put in for their country.
Great photos. Thanks for your work
THANK YOU for this snugs. It was soooo late, and we appreciate your efforts.
Those tents - they have set them up in abundance throughout the park. And, smaller pup tents - for sleeping possibly.
Could have been. I have a couple of elderly neighbors, and checked on them before leaving. One is on a respirator and uses a walker. She assured me her “caretaker” would come get her.
What if something happened to that caretaker? She might have been stuck, had a fire erupted around her. All I could do was give her my phone number.
The other I know better - and said - make plans, or you’re going with me! LOL
She made plans - has family close.
But they are reluctant - very reluctant to leave. And I understand.
I’m pretty sure there was no FEMA back in 1971, but I was a young mother, and a horrid earthquake struck in the early morning hours. My house tilted and fell off of it’s foundations. I lost most everything. We were broke.
I cannot tell you how grateful I was to be told I could register for Federal relief, and the federal government paid my rent for 2 months. Just enough time to get it back together.
It felt like a gift from heaven. I’m sure these folks are going to be very appreciative as well.
I have heard a few advertisements on TV and radio from insurance companies - call us at xxx-xxxx if you lost your home and were insured by us. We’re here to help you.
That means a lot.
To die in a fire must be one of the most horrible things that can happen to a human
THe Photo of the Day === What a Classic!
The mother has her arms around the baby, and the President has his left arm around the mother and his right arm touching not only the baby but the mother’s right hand. He has encircled both of them with love.
Babies always feel the love in his face and touch.
I had that same thought - would I rather die in a fire or drown? Drowning won.
I can’t imagine being burned.
Snugs, thank you for all your hard work on this Dose. You did a great job, as always :) We appreciate it.
Thanks snugs... appreciate the pictures.
Interesting...one day she's stabbing W in the back, and the next, she's hitchin' a ride home and holding onto his arm for stability.
W...you are a better person than I, to be so forgiving.
"The Incorrigible Ms. F"...you have "huevos" the size of grapefruits.
Thank YOU, too, for your documenting of this/these truths through the Dose, as well.
That shopping center is where they were housing all those various animals--mini horses, llamas, etc. I saw footage of all the animals coming in or out (I don't know which) and it looked like Noah's ark footage ;-) I understand that people would come by and drop off hey and food and other supplies for the animals over and over again. They were doing so well, taking care of such a variety, too.
Well, I hope I am wrong about this. California courts seem to
be weak on prosecution, but this is beyond the pale. I don’t mean
to offend...have just seen too many defendants who were
guilty get off too lightly out there. Maybe it’s only the
Great shots of our beautiful First Lady! Thanks for finding
Maybe it’s not the time right now to critique past court cases?
You are correct. There was no FEMA in 1971. It was the peanut farmer from Georgia who brought us FEMA. One of the many disasters from the worst president this country has ever had
You are correct.
Prayers for California and all involved in this tragedy.
Thank you Eleanor .. there are a lot of great pix in your Thursday offering. I was in bed when you posted & gone most of day..
keep too busy here..
appreciate you & your work!
A very striking picture in a few dimensions, most notably the things it demonstrates about the character of the President.
These are pictures of such sad situations. The caption would be more accurate if it said that President Bush was assisting Sen DiFi as they walked. He is such a gentleman.
If the nation had seen these pictures every day, they would have a totally different impression of this good man. It seems to be almost impossible to be in his presence and not warm up to him.....except for Dem pols who have ice water in their veins. Thanks for the dose.
I don’t know HOW he does it, either. After those jerks stab him in the back like that....I couldn’t speak to them. I know he has to, but...STILL!
“Interstate-I5” or is that “Interstate-5 (I-5)?
Laura could never have even dreamed what the future held for her when she fell in love with the handsome young businessman/politician, who PROMISED she would never have to make a political speech! LOL!
But she is so totally natural, honest, and a wonderful First Lady. Absolutely adorable, too.
