My thanks go out to all the men and women who have served our Country here at home as well as on foreign soil. My heart goes out to all those families through the years who have lost loved ones in the fight to keep our Country free.

On a separate note, I was pleasantly surprised when one of our guests fell in love with "Upper Messerschmidt's Pond in Winter," one of my pastels on handmade archival paper. She went home treasuring it, imagining where she would hang it. Since Messerschmidt's Pond looks nothing like this winter scene now, perhaps part of its appeal was its cooling view on a warm summer's day. Be that as it may, I'm very happy that a painting which bears the touch of my spirit resonated with something in ZsuZsa's heart.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, EVERYONE!
