Today is a picture-perfect day with clear, blue skies and lots of sunshine. I helped as the mayor inserted the stakes of the plaque into the ground at the base of Buck's tree. I smiled because I know Buck would be pleased at this gesture and I cried because I wanted him beside me to hold my hand.

If I can figure out how to get a photo from the camera to the computer, I'll post a picture.
Katie, what a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man..I know how much you miss him, but I believe with all my heart he was right there beside you..Those beautiful blue skies all clear and bright, he was there with a big smile right at your shoulder...I think if you close your eyes you will almost feel him holding your hand.

He was holding your hand Katie. You couldn't feel it, but, he was there with you sweet lady.

Taking my 12 yr. old son for a check up and booster shot and him taking the shot like a man. Also seeing that he is only 2 1/2" shorter than me.

Ah Babe, mine get me that way too..I love looking into their beautiful faces when they ask for something..My grandsons are all handsome and know my weak spots, little Olivia, I'm told looks just as I did at that age and when she climbs in my lap and say please Ma, it's hers, same with my boys...Aren't they the best medicine?

I have missed so much.

Katie, thank you for sharing that beautiful moment. Now you can go visit Buck's tree and know that he will meet you there even if you can't see or feel him, he will be there.

Stacy, you go girl! Thinking of you on that treadmill makes me smile!

GOMAK, your son is more of a man taking needles than my DH is! That made me smile too!

Babe, she had me at "peease" too!

CJ, your encouragement to others ALWAYS makes me smile.
