This week’s theme is “Your Pick”.  In honor of President’s Day….

How would the Presidents who we honor this month celebrate their birthdays? I imagine there would be a large formal party,wouldn’t you? Let’s have our own presidential birthday celebration. Beginning with…

President Abraham Lincoln born, February 12, 1809, was fond of the opera. He particularly liked Martha, by Freierich von Flowtow, according to If Abraham Lincoln Had An iPod.

General George Washington, served as our nation’s first president. Born in the year of the Lord 1732 on February 22nd, we honor his birth.

Today the sons and daughters of the American Revolutionary and Civil War celebrate  birthdays with greater enthusiasm. Let’s kick of President’s Day with this these smash hits…




Happy Birthday to Our Founding Fathers – George Washington & Abraham Lincoln!

My DH has today off, so I’m going to spend it with him, but I’ll be visiting you tomorrow. What music is moving you this Monday?

An Angel…Good Samaritan…or Both?

This week has been a bit of a wild one.  To start off, we decided to go to a local satellite store to learn about Direct TV.  After we came out of the satellite store and hit the ignition to fire up the ole four door sleigh, our hearts slumped when the battery didn’t turn over.  It was dead!  I mean stone cold dead!

We weren’t totally surprised, as Robin said the car cranked slowly on the Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving. However, after our long travel over the Thanksgiving holiday, then our battery seemed to be charged nicely. We knew it would need to be replaced this week, but more at our leisure, instead of finding ourselves in an emergency state as we did on Monday night.

Thankfully, across the street was the All American Tire & Wheel shop.  Robin braved a busy, four-lane road crossing it at the peak of rush hour in hopes to get someone to jump-start our car. Nick, an employee, graciously attempted to resurrect our battery, but his efforts failed. Fortunately, the shop had a battery that would work in our car and Nick installed the new one.

Nick, our good Samaritan, didn’t have an easy job of it, either.  The battery corroded the terminals and clamps badly making it difficult to remove so he could get the battery out of the car.  He scrapped and banged, and then scrapped and banged some more until finally, the clamps freed up.  He got the job completed and before long our ol’ four-door sleigh purred like a kitten.  This young man, an angel no doubt, went beyond the call of duty that night and I…we thank him from the bottom of our hearts.

My Thursday Two Questions are:

1. Have you ever been stranded beside the road?

2. If so, did he/she do more than he/she should?  This is the season of such miracles, so share with us how your stranger came to the rescue.

Now share your answers to my Thursday Two Questions, and if you would like to participate in the link up, then be sure to click over to Blessing Reflections’s blog.  Happy Thursday!Save
