Thank a Soldier

~Tissue Alert~




Shamelessly stolen from blog buddy Old NFO.

Their sacrifices are immeasurable.

In the Chair Behind Me.....


Sometimes picture taking has it's rewards. While flying into Fort Myers, I was happily snapping photos of the spectacular aerial views out my miniature airplane window. Beautiful sweeping shots of great green expanses, deep blue oceans and a sky of wispy clouds all around us. I happened to turn just so.... and captured a tiny little angel, riding in the chair behind me. The best photo of all.

In The Company of Strangers



While walking along the beach in Fort Myers, I spied a couple sitting up near the edge of the dunes. They looked like regular beach goers, not the typical tourists. They were seated in beach chairs, a cooler between them. He had a local newspaper in hand, she had a paperback book. They were speaking with another gentleman when I approached them to ask if they would take my picture, yes - I was playing tourist! They asked where I was from, where I was staying; general pleasantries. After a bit of conversation she, (Judy) took my camera and said she'd snap off a photo for me. Richard (the other gentleman) decided that he should be in the photo as well. Who was I to disagree? So here, in the company of strangers, I am forevermore recorded digitally, standing on Fort Myers beach!
