Today is Flag Day. Last night I put flags out on our street for my neighbor, Hobie. People know him as the 9/11 guy. He keeps an American flag hanging in his front yard & another flag that tells us "Never Forget" (9/11). The least I can do is put the flags out for him. A day to remember how fortunate we are to be free.

My cousin,Cheryl, sent me this video this week. Someone took David Bouchard's poem & put it to music & photos. A really nice poem. It reminded me that when we lived in Arkansas I would occasionally feel claustrophobic because there were so many trees I could never see the horizon. We do know "flat" here in Nebraska. Enjoy!

My aunt, Elaine, weaves rugs. I have several. Unfortunately they don't last forever & do tend to come apart with age. Instead of throwing an old one away I unraveled it & rolled up the strips of fabric into balls to maybe be made into another rug. These balls of fabric seemed interesting enough to photograph before returning them to Elaine.

It's not every day that someone I know writes for the local paper. But my friend, Mary Jane, is a community columnist this summer & she recently submitted a column that I enjoyed. MJ allowed me to photograph her last year. I was trying to do some off camera flash & this is one of the photos I liked. Click here to read her column. A good message for us even if we only travel across town.

The poppies are blooming this weekend instead of the peonies. Last year I completely missed them when we spent the first week of May in Texas so I am happy to enjoy them this year. I find them in my neighborhood but most of these photos were taken on the University's east campus.

On a recent edition of CBS Sunday Morning I saw where a guy photographed the chips displayed in Walmart. He thought it was art. At first he got into some trouble with Walmart for taking photos in the store but they came around & decided they liked his work & purchased some for themselves. Myself, I enjoy the colors, the typography & fun of it all together. The chips? I need to stay away from them.
