I Charlie, the Queen of Seven Bundos and the rest of us would like to wish everybun a safe and peaceful Memorial Day.
My hoomin wondered about the "happy" part of the usual wishes so prevalent today. Well, he's been missing his friend and art teacher who served in Vietnam, Douglas Marquet Pesto. These days, Doug is resting at the Bay Pines VA Cemetery. He received three Purple Hearts, but in the end, perished making a left turn out of his apartment complex. He loved art and when it was all said and done, kept working in graphite, creating beautiful, soul grabbing portraits.
Sigh, maybe we'll take a break from bookworming today and art instead.
So, whatever you do out there today, be safe and come back in one piece, will ya?
