Veterans Day Tribute to My Father

Frances and Edward Lesniak 1943

My mother was six months pregnant with me when my father was shipped off to Okinawa in 1943.

I never saw him until I was 3 1/2 years old.

Mom said Dad had coal black hair when he went into the service, and four years later came back with white hair.

He never wanted to talk about WWII. He never wanted to kill anyone.

All he wanted was to be with his wife and new daughter.

I miss him. He was 92 when he died.

Arkansas Mafia

Be sure to do your research before voting for the next President of the United States of America. I have.

For those of you who think a woman, as the next Commander-in-Chief, would be a real plus for the women's rights movement, you may be correct. But not in the case of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The past Clinton Administration should be called the Arkansas Mafia. There are too many dead bodies, in various locations, associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton.


1. Vincent Foster, Deputy White Counsel during first months of Bill Clinton's administration, who allegedly committed suicide. There are too many forensic facts saying otherwise. This was during the Whitewater, Travelgate, and Filegate investigations.

2. J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. diplomat and Ambassador to Libya. Islamic militants attacked the American compound in Benghazi, Libya 9/11/2012. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton refused extra security prior to the attack. Also killed was Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer.

3. Several hours later, one mile away, two CIA contractors, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty were also killed.

One of Hillary's comments when investigated about Benghazi was, "At this point what difference does it make."

She is guilty of improper direction of government business, cronyism, testifying falsely, lapsed security, and email breaches of security. Personally, I don't trust her as far as I can throw her.

Have you noticed that Hillary always seems to be at the core of White House problems and investigations?

Is this who you want for President of the United States of America?

Free Admission

I was driving by a small, brick church on the way to the grocery store this morning, and saw a sign out front that reads, "Heaven is free. Details inside." For those of you who are haven't been to church in a while or don't go at all, your may want to stop in for the particulars.

There are some interesting "F" words at Jenny's.

Instant Idiocy

Remember Dan Quayle? Why would you want to, except for some of us who like some instant idiocy in the form of a Dan Quayle quote.

Some of my favorites:

1. "The global importance of the Middle East is that it keeps the Far East and the Near East from encroaching on each other."

2. "It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."

3. "Republicans have been accused of abandoning the poor. It's the other way around. They never vote for us."

4."I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future."

5. "When you make as many speeches and you talk as much as I do and you get away from the text, it's always a possibility to get a few words tangled here and there."

It's really hard to believe that Mr. Quayle was the vice-president of the United States to George Bush from 1988-1992. Must be the pretty face.

Black Eyed Susans

Black Eyed Susans

Fall is that time of year when my summer garden starts to fade and gets a bit overgrown, except for the black eyed susans with the formal name Rudbeckia. I think they should be called black eyed Beckys.

I pulled out the annuals that looked tired and overspent to make room for more perennial growth and spreading. That'll give the "susans" a chance to scatter their beauty to other parts of the garden. These flowers are not only beautiful but functional as well. As they go to seed, they'll be a tasty treat for the birds.

When I arrived home the other evening I was fascinated with the garden lights weaving their magic among the bright yellow flowers. I grabbed my handy I-phone and captured the moment. Happy gardening and hugs to all.
