Gold Star Mother's Day

September 30, 2012
Colorado, USA

Gold Star Mothers DayIn the words of Gold Star Mothers Monument sculptor, Andrew Chernak: The loss of a child in any circumstance is a grievous blow to a family, but, uniquely so to the mother who bore that child. One group of Mothers that especially stands apart from the norm are the Gold Star Mothers of America's fallen heroes. They are patriotic, loyal, and sympathetic. They understand our nation’s freedom is not to be taken for granted. The grief and loss these women have endured never leaves them, yet the Mothers rise above their pain in tribute to life going on. The Mothers have collectively served millions of hours in volunteer work, personal service in our nation's Veterans hospitals, and to the Veteran and his family in their community. In serving this way, the Mothers have turned their grief into a positive force. If you want to know quiet greatness, spend a little time in the presence of a Gold Star Mother.

First Day of Fall

September 22, 2012
Colorado, USA

This is my favorite time of year... We think we will get out and scatter the leaves already collecting on the roads here in Northern Colorado on the first day of Fall. Hope you are out doing the same.

This is a pic of our high country color ride September 15, 2012. The aspen were just beginning to show their gold... and it was a gorgeous day from start to finish.

Never Forget

September 21, 2012
Colorado, USA

Today is POW-MIA Recognition Day. It is always the third Friday in September.

This is not a "remembrance" day. This is a "light-in-the-window" until they all come home day. Never Forget.

Patriot Day

September 11, 2012
Colorado, USA

Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.

The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.

These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.

America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining.

LeAnn gets a Harley ride

September 9, 2012
Colorado, USA

Neighbor and friend LeAnn gets a dam ride on the Harley. I do not know if this will help Al's "time-to-get-a-Harley" cause but we gave it our best shot. Looks like she's having a high ol' time to me - LOL!
