Whispered Thoughts...

I write the story of my life on tiny slips of paper...

...that slip from my fingers like so much falling snow.

And It's Purple, Too!

I finally caved in and purchased the video camera I've been considering for some time now. I tend to lean much more toward the 'necessity only' side of things when purchasing anything for myself. Except, that is, when it comes to books...but they are a necessity to me! ;)

I can drive my family, and myself, crazy sometimes with my questioning before a purchase. 'Should I buy it...or shouldn't I?' And this being only the second 'major' purchase I've made in my entire--gulp--life.

I'm so glad now, though, that I decided to spend the money for it.

It's tiny, and prettyful, and matches my laptop.
Can it get any better than that?

I'm going to have so much fun capturing some of the crazy, lovable, & downright silly antics of we people around here. Not sure if I'll ever muster up enough courage to show them to anyone outside of immediate, immediate family, though.

Not, that is, until I sound a little less like a
deranged squirrel & a little more like myself.

Sheesh, it's quite frightening.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed & degraded state of moral & patriotic feeling
which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight,
nothing which is more important than his own personal safety,
is a miserable creature & has no chance of being free unless
made & kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I blinked one day...

...and found that Summer
is nearly winding to a close.

How did the days slip by so quickly?
