The images in mosaics above and just below the summary are of my husby and myself, when we were getting married and a reception that followed some 5 months later.
You see, I was living in Dallas, Texas, working for Braniff International Airlines and he had just returned from Vietnam.
We eloped on December 22, 1969 and then once back in Louisville, Kentucky, 5 months later, our family had a reception for us~

I will be linking up with Judith for:
My husby always treats me to a watercolour greeting card for my birthday, anniversary, and Christmas.
These were the ones I received last week~
My daughter Hillary treated me to the Louisville Ballet's "Nutcracker" performance, which was held at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts.
We were celebrating my birthday~
My 91 year old father-in-law is slowly losing his memory, but he can still sing beautifully.
He was a Minister of Music at several churches, during his career, as well as taught at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary for 43 years.
Last week, I looked some songs up on my cell phone and he used it like a microphone and sang his heart out to me...precious time~
My youngest daughter Ashleigh came into town for Christmas with her husby, from Florida.
We got to spend a whole afternoon together, which was a lovely blessing~
Our middle daughter Brittany and her three children on Christmas morning...the smiles say it all~
Hillary's twin boys sharing a large chocolate Hersheys Kiss.
Their dog is one of 4, and they also have 3 cats ;)
My friend Laurene sent our dogs some treats for Christmas and here is Meaka on left and Silveit on the right, chewing their first ever pigs ears...yum ;)
There are a bunch of feral cats that live near our home land and for those that are not left food from good people, others must always be on the hunt for their next meal.
On this particular day, this handsome chap caught a large field mouse~
Now that the canopy of green is gone, we can see the Raptors much more easily.
The Red-Shouldered Hawks are striking birds and always stand out to me.
Here are 6 different birds all seen this past week while traveling near home in the car with the husby~
This one was actually in my father-in-laws back yard and I didn't let the wires spoil the opportunity~
I took the series below in very low light and could not bring it up to what I thought were the best standards and so, I gave it a black and white finish~
I love this bird, every time I see it, it seems so much different looking than most others, very pale and most probably a male~
I wish that I could have gotten better images of this bird.
It had the most amazing plumage~
We were passing a cattle farm the other day, when I noticed this red apple on the fence post.
Someone left their snack~
American Black Vulture~
White-tailed Deers and Burros~
I almost missed this Great Blue Heron.
It was in a field at the far end of a cow pasture.
I had never noticed it before, but there is a very narrow stream there and so I expect the Heron was looking for breakfast~
