A Trip To Arbys

Come with me on a trip to Arbys! No, I do not go for the food. In fact, my doctor told me I cannot eat red meat anymore. I don't miss it all that much, and after just watching the movie "Food Inc.", I am mighty glad to not be eating it anymore. Did I tell you little Anne Marie has become a vegetarian? She decided at age 7, after a fateful day at Chick-Fil-A while looking at their signs. They made her realize that she had been eating something that had been alive.  And after a year, she has still stuck to it! In fact, I still eat chicken and fish, just no beef or pork. But Arbys has some mighty fine potato patties! Anyway, as you can see, I come to Arbys to marvel at the yellow trees. I don't know what they are, but they make me feel better than the beef. I hope I haven't offended any meat eaters out there...meat gives you iron, so rock on!!!

“God spoke to Moses, “I’ve listened to the complaints of the Israelites. Now tell them: ‘At dusk you will eat meat and at dawn you’ll eat your fill of bread; and you’ll realize that I am God, your God.’”
Exodus 16:10,12

Meet A Real Baby Dragon!

I promised you a real, living and breathing Water Dragon, and here he is! This little guy is just a baby, but he will grow to three feet, including tail. He can stay submerged under water for up to 25 minutes. And he can live up to 15 years! But this baby would rather look at you and give you a big smile!!! I am so glad to have met him.

“War broke out in Heaven. Michael and his Angels fought the Dragon. The Dragon and his Angels fought back, but were no match for Michael. They were cleared out of Heaven, not a sign of them left. “

Fiery Water Dragon

“Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Unknown by me

This is the Water Dragon of lights who resides in the middle of a pond nearby. He only comes out in the month of Christmas, and we always go to see him. He is fierce and huge.  He is breathing fire on a poor dolphin.  But on my next post, I will show you a REAL living and breathing Water Dragon!!!

Seeing Thru Their Hearts

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
 A song is no song 'til you sing it,
  And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
  Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein

This is the post that I had planned for Valentine's Day, but I did not get around to it then, so I will post it now. Aren't these blown glass hearts beautiful? You can see right through them. These giant hearts hang in a glass blowing shop. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could see through people's hearts like this? And this is the new me, new haircut and no glasses, saying hi to YOU! I hope every day is like Valentine's Day for you.

 On the outskirts of town, we happened to pass this building. It used to be a gas station. But what a difference now! What was going on? One...
