Several weeks ago, my Painting of the Week was of a soldier smelling a letter from home. I painted it from a photo that I found somewhere on the internet, but I could not remember where I found it. Today, Laurie found the photographer and the photo. The photo was taken by Cheryl Diaz Meyer of the Dallas Morning News. You can see the actual photo here. It is a great photo. Ms. Meyer did and incredible job.
Just something else on my mind: I may switch to beta blogger (blogger beta?). If I do and you have trouble commenting...well, you are on your own. When some others made the switch, I had to comment using "other" rather than my blogger account. Lately, though, I do not have to use "other". I can use my blog name. We will see what happens.
One other interesting item: it is so windy here today, that the wind blew my freezer door open (the freezer is a large upright that stands outside in our carport) and pulled the whole freezer away from the wall. I saw my dog out in the yard eating some ground pork. If the wind dies down, I will have to go to the south fence and collect all sorts of junk that has blown off of my carport. Who knows, maybe I will find a steak.
