A moment of silence to:

* Remember the victims and heroes of that day.

* Honor those who fight the ongoing battle.

* Respect, love, and keep forging the community that resulted because of it.

Although we may have distance geographically, we are closer today than we were on 9-10-01.

I Thank you for letting me be a part of your life. I call you my friend.

God Bless You.

I spent the evening watching footage of the attacks that I had not seen for nearly a year. I was a little surprised that much of the shock and dismay that I felt exactly one year ago still remained.

I had many moments of silence today. I thought often of the utter confusion that everyone in this country felt that morning. I thought of standing in the conference room at work a year ago, watching the South Tower fall down on itself.....thinking that they actually brought it down....how could they have actually brought it down?

To think that, in all that destruction and confusion, so many individuals took it upon themselves to try to help. The firefighters, the law enforcement, the Trade Center workers who helped their peers get down and out. The people on Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. Incredible, undeniable heroes.

It is so very important that we, as individuals and as a country, earn that for which they sacrificed. We owe it to them to live good lives, to care for our families, to work hard, to enjoy life....to do everything in our power to protect our country and all it represents.

Cherish life. God Bless.

My friend's husband of 14 days was on the flight from Boston that first hit. I just found out that his family is sueing her for all the money she got.

Sometimes I really hate people.

Yes there is nothing like a funeral in the family to bring out the vultures. Unbelievable!

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
