My youngest Sibling, a Brother always reminds me of that fact when ever we discuss the world situation or any other topic. Yes, "Life Is Good." Now, all I have to wait for is the parcel from the Company Store in Wisconsin. It will contain two new feather down pillows of the right density so that I can sleep in great comfort. They have a site where you can custom build your own pillow to give your neck, back and head the proper support depending on the manner in which you sleep.
So the Flower Child has done his part. He has expended his Economic Stimulus Payment and looks forward to capturing higher quality pictures with the new Camera.

This evening at 8:37 P.M. I was able to view the warm glow from the reflected setting sun on the Hydrangea Gardens which abound in the Gardens at My Home. I enjoyed the shadows in the background as well as the reflected light off of the white blooms. This year has been a wonderful year for the Hydrangea Plants.
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (June 8, 2008) Hull Maintenance Technician Fireman David O'Brian, a Sailor assigned to the Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigate USS Crommelin (FFG 37), kisses his wife during the "first kiss" ceremony at the end of the Crommelin's six-and-half month deployment to Latin America. Crommelin returned to homeport at Naval Station Pearl Harbor from after conducting monitoring, detecting, counter-narcotics activities and civic action projects.

The Flower Child has vivid memories of returning from deployments to the Western Pacific and the Mediterranean. It always was grand to return to the United States. The above image certainly captures the excitement and joy of returning from a Cruise.
I can certainly appreciate the hardships that all the members of our U. S. Forces endure to insure our security in the United States of America. Today the Flower Child request that you take the opportunity to Thank a member of the U. S. Military. Those who have served and those who are serving deserve our gratitude.

Please do not delay. Do this today so that your situation will be in the system. Of course if you have anytype of property insurance you must call them also.
As I close this Blog, I am extremely grateful that I did not suffer any major damage.

As part of the Celebration the Pine Ridge Garden Club of Macon, Georgia Sponsored a Flower Arranging Demonstration featuring the use of plant materials that grown in the Garden. The presentation was entitled "Bringing the Outside In." Or it could also be titled "Summer Floral Arrangements from the Garden." The arrangement shown above would be very appropriate for a large foyer/entrance way or a display on a buffet table.
The Pine Ridge Garden Club of Macon, of which the Flower Child is a member, certainly celebrated their Anniversary in an appropriate manner, but they also promoted National Garden Week 2008 in an excellent manner.
