A Ray of Gratitude for our Freedom!!

What do you get if you cross a cow & a flamingo? A cowflamingo! I must admit that every time I visit CF&G, something makes me laugh. This was it on this particular visit. As I was casually strolling the property, it was so silly & unexpected. I couldn't help but laugh!

Strength & Courage

Submitted by Mary Schueller

How appropriate that this eagle would appear high up in a tree as I was practicing Qi Gong in the great outdoors with a group of cancer survivors. The eagle is often said to be symbolic of strength & courage --- & these cancer survivors are some of the strongest & most courageous people I know! Kudos to Leah for her "eagle eye" in spotting it!

Autumnal Color

Submitted by Mary Schueller

I had just commented to someone that the Autumnal Color didn't seems quite as spectacular this year as it was in some previous years. But then I saw this reminder that nature sure adds beauty to our trek through life!

In case anyone who attended and didn't see the kites in the air... Bob the Builder and I had a few kites in the sky just before everyone started to arrive!  Like a day of fishing during which you don't catch any fish... we had fun anyway despite the elusive wind!!!
