Violin Practice

I thought it might be a good idea to practice my violin today.¬† Just kidding ūüôā¬† I wish I could play this instrument, but maybe in my next life … hehehe!

For all of my American friends and family, have a safe, playful and joyful Independence Day. Fly our flag proudly. Namaste’



Old Glory

Independence Day.  We celebrate July 4th each year in honor of our Declaration of Independence created 237 years ago, and personally I pray that no more of our civil liberties are infringed upon.

Happy Birthday, America!¬† I hope all of you and your loved ones enjoy a safe and happy holiday.¬† Be safe with your fireworks.¬† Namaste’



Independence Day – 2012

Happy Independence Day to all of you beautiful people!

Independence Day, the commemoration of America’s independence of the British Crown on July 4, 1776, has somehow gravitated to wishing others a Happy 4th of July. What’s up with that? ¬†I don’t understand. ¬†That’s like saying Happy 31st of May instead of Happy Memorial Day. ¬†Our forefathers fought hard and a lot of lives were lost so that we could be a free country. ¬†FREE = INDEPENDENCE. ¬†So I say to you … Happy Independence Day and may God continue to bless us all.

One of my fellow bloggers wrote a great post for today and I’d like to share it with you: ¬†WE THE PEOPLE.

The photos are of today … first one of our flag and subsequent ones as the summer storm hit and flooded our back yard. ¬†Yee Haw! ¬†Lots of lightning, thunder and rain … glorious rain! ¬†I was so excited to see our parched desert get a gigantic drink of water. ¬†Namaste’

Jolly Roger in the Desert

Today’s photo is of one of my neighbors … flying a Jolly Roger.¬† What???????¬† I’ve noticed it before and always wondered why they fly it.¬† Could it be that it’s

  • a conversation piece?
  • their ancestors were really pirates?
  • they’re really pirates (aaarrghhhh)?
  • they’re personal friends with Johnny Depp?

I think I’ll remember to ask the next time I see them. Click the image to enlarge it.¬† I’m trying to keep file size down these days to accommodate some of my email followers.¬† Namaste.

I touched this up a bit to give it that old effect. Pirates are old, aren't they?
