Alien Invasion

A field of sunflowers would be a great place to hid an alien probe, disguised as a unopened sunflower, or perhaps it is just a sunflower pod.

An unexpected gift from a stranger today while out eating with my daughter.

While eating a meal with Katie in a restaurant in Rock Hill, a man paid for our meal today, with a thanks for my service to our country. I had my Vietnam Era Veteran ball cap sitting on the edge of the table. The man, who was near my age thank me twice for my service and shook my hand upon his leaving of the restaurant. He also welcomed me back home. I think he made have thought that I was actually in Vietnam. From 1970-1974, I was in the Navy and had to put up with all the hate directed at the war, and the military anytime I was off base and in uniform.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I was one of the many people who enter the military during the Vietnam War that didn't serve in Vietnam. To my knowledge, no nuclear power submarines provided support to the Vietnam War. Most of the subs were too busy following Russian submarines, that were tracking our carrier fleet.

I do have 10 years of military experience in two different branches of the service, and was surprise that someone would take the time to thank me for that service.

Magnificent Tiger Resting

Tigers (Panthera tigris) are mammals of the Felidae family, one of four “big cats” that belong to the Panthera genus, and the largest of all cats, living or extinct. The magnificent tiger is a heavily muscled, powerful predator that stalks and ambushes large prey, camouflaged by its stripy coat. Notice how well the tiger’s coat blends into the stone wall behind him. Photo taken at the Riverside Zoo and Gardens in Columbia SC
