Another Memorial Day has come and gone.
Many great men and women are still out there,
protecting our freedoms,
keeping us safe,
sacrificing every day so that we can be free.
Thank you to all who serve
and all who have ever served.
You are the true heroes.
Local Scouts pay tribute to our veterans
by putting up flags at 2 local cemeteries
on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday
of Memorial Day weekend.

My husband's hobby is watching the weather.
I was glad recently when he suggested we go out
and take photos of some storm clouds.
By sheer luck I was able to get a couple of
shots of lightning, as well as
the sunset. Finally we've found
a way to make our hobbies collide.
Such a gorgeous sunset. I'd love to
take credit for creating such vivid colors
and the way they swirled together,
but all the credit goes to God.
No one can create what He does.
Storm clouds off in the distance.
One of the 3 shots in which I got a glimpse
of lightning, and you can also see just a
glimmer of it in the photo below.
This was my best lightning shot.
I've never tried shooting lightning before
and it was sheer luck to get this shot.
This sunset shot was taken on a different evening.
