Current Photo Friday theme: Calm
There was no noise except the gentle sound of the rain on leaves and horses’ hooves on pavement at a military funeral in January. The large crowd of mourners stood silent, saluting or placing hands over hearts as the caisson passed by.
There was a time in our twenties when Lynne, her sister Liz, and I were always ready to join a close group of friends and family in costuming ourselves for parties and home movies. One of those friends especially close to Lynne and Liz was Kathy C. She had the greatest sense of fun and approached every day with zest. I wish I had a photo of her in her Kermit the Frog disco costume. Since I don’t, here’s one from a Halloween party at Lynne’s.
Lynne shared the news with me today that Kathy died–way too young–in late February. I know she’ll be deeply missed by her family and friends. I will always see her, forever young, leading her high school band across the field as their drum major.
Her energy and spirit are in every smile, every peal of laughter.
The usual characters have company in wishing you all a happy Fat Tuesday! A special shout-out to Timmy, too: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! As you know, Timmy, you share this birth date with yet another character, my late mother.
In honor of my Pisces loves, everybody party like a fish! (I don’t know what that even means.)

My favorite photo from last week’s Rescued Pets Movement transport?
“Ha ha, look at me! I’m a meerkat!”
“We would be so happy you and me…no one there to tell us what to do.”

“What’s out there?”
Who says two different fandoms can’t coexist? Not Marika, that’s who.
Star Trek’s Uhura, Scott, McCoy, Spock, Chekov, Kirk, and Sulu cross-stitched for Tom by Marika.
Twilight’s Edward, Bella, and Jacob cross-stitched for me by Marika.
Thank you again, Marika. Thought you’d like to see them clean, pressed, and framed.
