Halloween Give-Away!
I am having a giveaway. It seems like everyone is giving away goodies lately, so I thought I would too. It all started today when I went to a new used items store...she has all kinds of kitschy stuff and collectibles. I found a box of old photos and they were so inexpensive that I had to have some. I made a collage sheet and have uploaded it here.

It is yours for FREE from now until October 31st! (Don't you think some of these would make great Halloween cards? heeheehee! ) Just click on the photo to enlarge to full size, then right click and save it to your hard drive. Enjoy!
Some interesting notes...
In the first photo of the mother and daughter, you wonder what the occasion is...the daughter looks quite nervous and trepidacious. In the second photo did you notice all the loose shingles ready to fall on the "nitwit's" head? Check out those ladies crossing the lake...does that look precarious or what? ...and...they are sitting on metal seats made from old raking machines. (I recognized them from machines that my dad had.)

Lest We Forget - September 11, 2001

Today is the 7th Anniversary of that day of infamy. In memory of those who lost their lives, their families who still mourn their loss, and those whose hearts are still broken by this attack on our beloved homeland I join my tears with yours in our mutual losses. To those who rallied to rescue and serve the survivors, to those who work daily to preserve our security, and to those who are willing to fight for our freedom no matter where it takes them, or whatever the sacrifice, I say Thank You. In observance of this day of mourning I have posted here exerpts of our President's words to us in this time of deepest trial. ~Connie
Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes, or in their offices; secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers; moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed; our country is strong.

A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. ~George W. Bush September 2001 I know there are struggles ahead, and dangers to face. But this country will define our times, not be defined by them. As long as the United States of America is determined and strong, this will not be an age of terror; this will be an age of liberty, here and across the world.

Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom -- the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time -- now depends on us. Our nation, this generation will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage.

We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail...
Peace and freedom will prevail.

....I will not forget this wound to our country or those who inflicted it. I will not yield; I will not rest; I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people. The course of this conflict is not known, yet its outcome is certain. Freedom and fear, justice and cruelty, have always been at war, and we know that God is not neutral between them.
~George W. Bush September 2001

Clicking on the bottle will take you to Go-Make-Something where you can read about it and sign up...Be sure to leave your NAME and ADDRESS in the comments. It is moderated so your info will not show up in the posted message.
