It's cool and windy this morning, and quiet here at the shop. I haven't heard from my friend, Duke. I know, at this time, he has his plate full.
For those of you new to my humble little blog, Duke is one of my best friends. We live and work in the same city. He is a member of our support 'group.' When I say I know him....I do on a personal level. We have much in common - military careers, personal likes and dislikes, our mindsets on the country and world events.
When he suffers, I and all our friends suffer with him. I take this very personal. 'Nuff said.
It is, sadly, time for me to open the doors and begin my day. It is beautiful outside and I must remember to thank the Good Lord for all my (and your) blessings. I thank each of you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring of kind wishes and prayers for my friend. Again, he is fine...and on his behalf, until he can personally do so, I thank you again.
I often write my 'thanks & welcomes' to new followers with the line - 'You Are Now Among Friends.'
How very true...
