Oh LV this is so nice! And thank you so much for stopping by, it was really nice to see you again.
I haven't cooked in so long but wanted to be really creative tonight with dinner and it turned out wonderful. I may even try this "cooking thing" about once a month!
Take care, Terry

Thanks so much for the tribute to our soldiers. My husband spent 20 1/2 years as a pilot and various other positions in the United States Air Force,and thankfully he did not lose his life in Viet Nam or other events. But we are so thankful for our men in uniform.

Lovely post today in honour of all our brave men and women who serve in the Armed Forces in all our countries. Especially thinking of all those who gave their lives for their countries.

I love the flag so so much. It has such a deep meaning and often brings tears to my eyes.

I had to smile at the spelling of MEMORIAL on the button...bet it was done by a child. :))

Have a wonderful day, my sweet friend.

The little bright flags in the sunshine are a tribute to the fallen Heroes, and a testament to their courage and sacrifice.

It's always lovely to have you drop in at Lawn Tea.

Wonderful photos of the flags flying in the breeze, and a very clever King-Kong picture. I hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Hi!
This is Orchid again. Thank you for your comment to my post. I just want to tell you that I don't have preconception like all American people have seen "Gone with the wind", haha.

Take Care, my new American Mom.
