Just a way to say thanks


I posted for Valentine's Day. That was my first holiday or special day commemoration.  Most times these days creep up on me and I totally miss posting about them.

Today, I thought I would dedicate this Independence Day to the 19 firemen who were killed fighting a wildfire in Arizona a few days ago. There are so many who give their lives to keep us safe and free. It was a hard choice deciding who to honor. So, I give my thanks to all who have given their lives in any way for our country.

  2. Marta,
    Thanks! I will keep in touch. :-)

  3. Hello Grandmommy,
    That is a beautiful dedication.
    Big hug,

  4. Giac, can you thank someone who gives their life for you?
    Major hugs

  5. Quite terrible with all those families who miss their husband, father, son, son in law. Very beautiful dedication from you.

  6. That's a very nice dedication. Such a horrific tradgedy!

    1. Vanessa,
      Thanks. Dont forget to send up a prayer for the survivors, both their families and coworkers.

  7. What a lovely tribute! I hope you had a nice 4th of July weekend. Oh...btw, I love Puccini and especially, 'Gianni Schicchi'. That counter-tenor from the show was amazing! With a little training he could go very far as there are not many singers who can pull off a falsetto like that.

  8. Hi John,

    I guess my favorite opera is Madame Butterfly, My favorite ballet is The Little Mermaid and I purchased mostly concertos.
    To think that was natural without training.
    I wonder what made him realize he could do that. LOL

  9. Hi! thanks for your comments on my blog!!! always so lovely! would you contact me again via email, as i couldn't find your email? you had asked about that "kaufladen'! Your memory roombox is very touching! May they all be remembered with love and respect for their work! It is heartbreaking!

  10. Anna,
