I thought I’d post some “Which Way” photos for Cee’s challenge this week.
Driving through Atlanta during a storm and just as 5:00 pm weekday traffic is beginning is a nightmare unto itself!
Brasstown Bald, GA, rising 4,784 feet above sea level, is Georgia’s tallest mountain. Its incredible 360 degree view allows you to see Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee and South Carolina on a clear day.
But, as you can see, the day we chose to visit was not the best. We reached the lookout just in time to literally watch the clouds/fog roll in at a very rapid pace. I didn’t even bother with checking out looking West! And, yes, we will go back for another try!
There are a couple of challenges this past week with the theme of FRIEND, The Daily Post and One Word Photo Challenge. There are so many ways to portray this theme. I chose to show how “friendly” we all are at my house! 😉
Hubby and Midge (she’s the oldest at 16) and she doesn’t care whether you’re busy or not!
Me and Inky (age 7) and she doesn’t care either whether you’re busy or not either! LOL!

My dear friend, Ellen, together with a friend of hers, invented and now has a growing business making “Halo Vests” to help blind dogs navigate without injuring themselves. It works so well and has become so popular that they now sell internationally. They have also made Halo Vests for cats and sheep! I wanted to take this opportunity to share this information in case there is anyone who has a beloved pet needing help or maybe knows someone in that position. Please feel free to share! Let’s help these little ones!

I’m reblogging one of my Memorial Day tributes. Just because time has gotten away from me, I could not let this day pass without giving honor to those who have given or are giving me my freedom. God Bless you all.
I just want to pay homage this Memorial Day weekend to all of the men and women, past, present and future, wherever and however they have sacrificed or will sacrifice in giving service to this great country and the freedoms I enjoy. God Bless each and every one of you and your families.
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
He’d stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.
