    I find it fitting, because when I post, Johnny is here. Plus, I love The Shining. It was supposed to be a gif avatar (meaning it's like a clip) but those don't seem to work here

    I chose it to honor our fallen in combat, including my son, Andrew - lost in Iraq in 2004. RIP to all of our lost, beloved soldiers.
    Oh, Poppy, I'm sooo sorry to hear of your loss. My avatar also reflects my son, David, who I lost in 2005 (his nickname for me). We, moms, will always hold our boys close to our hearts, even if it's just with an avatar.

    What a great nickname he gave you! And yes, we do keep them close - vividly close. My heart goes out to you, too. ♥

    I got this picture of Roxie and Smokey sleeping together in a sunny spot in my kitchen. Well, Roxie woke up when I got the camera out, but nothing wakes Smokey up when he's sleeping!
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon

    Adorable. If smokey is that sound a sleeper it means that he feels very very safe and comfortable. I think it is wonderful.

    In memory of the many veterans who failed to return from serving our country.

    For every veteran who served our country, God bless you and thank you for your service!
