    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    I spent a great deal of time with my Grandmother when I was young and loved to hear her tell the stories of her childhood.

    When she would talk about WWII, she would tell of the rationing, the scrap drives and the general Patriotism of all Americans.

    She would also say in a "hushed" voice, "Loose lips sink ships!"

    Later, as an adult, she told me, "Believing in yourself doesn't make your goal easier. It makes it possible."

    Love my Gramma....It's sad that I don't even know if she is still alive. I haven't visited with her since I left Kansas almost 10 years ago....She's in a "health care facility" in Kansas is the last I know. I wish that I could afford to go see her, my Sister and my Aunt, all in the same area of Lawrence. The last of my family.

    Which leads me to understand the saying, "Home is where the Heart is."
    Especially with the Holidays coming up...

    Please spend time with your family this season, hug them, tell them how much you love them, and,
    ask them about "OLD TIMEY SAYIN'S!"


    Best Wishes,
    Scott

    We used to say something similar. It went like this; "Don't let your alligator mouth get your hummingbird ass in trouble".

    Haven't been in a post office for years . Do they still hang wanted posters on the walls?

    claimed were ; pictures of my daddy's family

    A bit of research on "To cross the Rubicon"
    Caesar had overtaken his cohorts at the river Rubicon, which was the utmost boundary of his province, he rested for a while; then, considering how great an enterprise he was undertaking, turned to those who stood next to him and said, " As yet friends, we are able to turn back; but once we pass over this little bridge, there will be no business but by force of arms and dint of sword."Click image for larger version.
