Let us not forget what happened 13 years ago.  Planes flying into the twin towers in New York City, the Pentagon and the plane down in the field in Pennsylvania.  I remember where I was when I heard the news.  Do you?  I pray every night for God to keep this country safe and strong.  Remember those that were lost in the above  mentioned tragedies.   GOD BLESS AMERICA.

"By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer."   ~Helen Hunt Jackson~

"Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh so mellow.   Try to remember the kind of September when grass was green and grain so yellow.   Try to remember the kind of September when you  were a young and a callow fellow. Try to remember and if you remember then follow ..follow,   oh oh.
    ~Lyrics by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt~

Today is the first day of September, Labor Day,  wishing every one a safe and happy holiday.

August, with its clouds of scented blooms,
August, with its great stacks of giant clouds,
August, with corn plants standing like a row of soldiers,
August, with watermelons , full and heavy, dozing in the sun,
August, remember swimming in the lake?
August, remember baby Alice daintily eating berries from the vine?
August, remember Rickie playing with the goat?
August, remember Donald  practicing on his new saxophone?
August, and its lightening laced sky,
August, and newlyweds Pat an Chet decorating  their first home,
August, and Billy the brave, Billy the fearless, on his two wheeled bike,
August, and shimmering memories hanging like drops of dew,
August the bountiful,  August the full,
August, mamas hot, but smiling, over a platter of succulent roast chicken,
August, daddy mixing her a frosty mint julep
August, blessed harvest of memories.

Shifting away from June's bud to leave dandelions scattered in the yard this dawn of July marks the end of a lie a lie from the past season for a strong reason.  In July robin will make herself shy and cover her reddish breast with her celestial bird crest then flap her wings to fly close against the sky. I want to kiss July and make July lasting forever in beauty but not ephemeral.   I will preserve July on my canvas and with magic brush so that she will be enthralled and blush.  I will paint July with charming colour so that she will be captured in delight and her soul enraptured because my heart is in July.

"We go in withering July to ply the hard incessant hoe;  panting beneath the brazen sky we sweat and grumble, but we go."

Summertime and the livin' is easy fish are jumping and the cotton is high.   Oh your daddy's rich and your mamma's good lookin' so hush little baby don't you cry.   One of these morning's you're going to rise up singing then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky.  But until that morning there's a'nothing can harm you with your daddy and mamma standing by.    ~George Gershwin~

Hope everyone has a safe and blessed summer.

My mother has been gone for a good many years.  She instilled in me many good traits and virtues that I am so thankful for and I have tried to pass on to my 3 daughters and 1 son.  I wish my 3 daughters, Debra, Deann, and Kara  and my daughter-in-law a very happy Mother's Day.  This wish also goes out to all my relatives and blogging friends.  You all have helped me get through a couple of bad times which I am very grateful for.  Have a wonderful and blessed day.
