Another Good Start


A summer scene.

First. The Wild Boars are free. That’s what I awoke to read today.

I think, after that, I’ll just stop reading the news. Most of it is bad.

I’ll just add one thing. We talk about police, firemen, that military as being heroes. They’re not. For the most part, they are just doing their jobs. Ask them. They’ll tell you. Ask a soldier. He or she will tell you that the only heroes are the ones who didn’t come home.

The divers and support teams who journied to Thailand are heroes. Combined with the Thai Navy Seals and the local medal staff, they went above and beyond. The international team didn’t have to travel to Chiang Rai from all over the world. But, they did. They shared their expertise, courage and skills with 12 young, scared boys and their coach while the world watched.

The picture. Simplicity today in a nod to the Buddhism that most Thais practice. Making this picture wasn’t as easy as you might think. If you look at the detail you know that I was pretty close to this scene. That means hands and knees on the ground. For my poor metal hip and arthritic back that takes an effort. I saw the picture. I wanted to make the picture. I ain’t done yet. The rest was simple.

      • I took out the two that had been producing because they had been overrun with stinkbugs! I’m debating about whether to leave the other four in the ground & see what happens 🙂

      • Assuming, they produce in the summer, I’d just leave them alone. It’s getting late in the season. Strawberries are another deal. The minute that they ripen, the little jerks we call dogs, eat them before we can get to them. 🙂

      • And there’s some volunteer vine crawling on them, too, so it’ll be the survival of the fittest out there in the garden! I think it’s a cantaloupe! Haven’t tried strawberries yet…
