SQUARES – Petrified Tree

Looking UP at the famous Petrified Tree at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

An American Thanksgiving

On October 3, 1789, George Washington created the first Thanksgiving Day designation by the national government of the United States of America for all citizens to observe this day of thanks.

Happy 245TH Birthday, Marines

The Marine Corps motto is Semper Fidelis meaning Always Faithful and is the code in which every marine lives for the rest of their lives. It is a code that is not taken lightly.

SQUARES – Four of a Kind

The Blue Angels is celebrating their 74th anniversary this year and the 34th year flying the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet seen in these photos.

SQUARES – Perspective – Fort Matanzas

Work started on the tower in the fall of 1740 by the Spanish to guard the Matanzas Inlet which was at the mouth of the Matanzas River and could provide a backdoor to the City Of St. Augustine. St. Augustine’s primary defense system was centered around Castillo de San Marcos, the main fort in the now historic district of St. Augustine.

SQUARES – PERSPECTIVE – 4TH OF JULY

Today is July 4, 2020. A day that we celebrate the Independence of the United States of America. You know, as each day goes by, we are living in the nightmare of COVID-19, social distancing, racial inequalities, job losses and a failing economy. I began soul searching for what our country could be. We are the United States of America, not the Divided States of America. Liberty and Justice for all…not just a few!

Mount St. Helens – 40 Years Later

Hiking up the ridge about two miles from the visitors center parking lot, I heard my first coyote howl. It was like he gave everybody else permission to start singing. I have no idea how many coyotes there were that night and I never saw a single one.

SLS – “1814 Battle of New Orleans”

The Battle of New Orleans wasn’t the final time the British and American forces would exchange fire.

SLS – Happy Together by The Turtles

Once when I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California, me and a few of the guys took a trip down to Tijuana. It was safer to drink the tequila than it was to drink the water, so we indulged except for the one driving.
