I took the red birds and blue birds candle holders with me to put in the middle of the tables at the July Art Venture luncheon. I placed tea candles in them and they were gorgeous from all sides.
The Kitty Justice is that I can enjoy them daily.

On one of the blogs I read, the lady had been having pain and someone told her about going "wheat free". She tried it for three weeks and got better then went back to eating the wheat and felt awful again. She suggested reading the book, Wheat Belly, so since I have had lots of time to read, I ordered them and became a Disciple of No Wheat.
Prince thinks I am a little off center, but if it will help why not try. So here I am and I have not had any of that bad ole wheat in over 3 weeks. Yep I am feel better.
The middle book will scare the PEE JESUS out of yawl. Makes me want to return to my roots and grow or raise everything that we on the hill consume. Read it and see what yawl think?
After reading the middle book, I can understand why there are so many big bellies on folks. No it is not the sedate life style but the opiates in the wheat that makes you want more and more and more. Also, I reflected back to my youth and large people were very rare now it is the norm.
The Kitty Justice is to blame the ole chap Greed, big companies (Monsanto) and our precious Government.

Just a wee bit of history. When Japan stuck terror in the heart of America with the Pearl Harbor attack, how were we to respond?It was left to 80 men, Doolittle's Raiders in April 1942 to strike back. These daring and selfless men undertook a mission that has not ever been duplicated. First big heavy bombers had never taken off from a carrier before. Sixteen B-25s with a five crew men each were to take off from a carrier with Lt. Col James Doolittle, who himself flew the lead plane off the USS Hornet, and they all knew that they would not be able to return to the ship. The hope was to hit Japan and then try to safely land in nearby China.
The really bad news, was that the Japanese got wind of the plan therefore they had to take off farther out in the Pacific Ocean. Thus, they would not have enough fuel to get to safety. They still took off.
They bomb Tokyo and then flew as far away as possible. Four planes crashed, 11 crew men bailed out, three died, eight were taken captive, three were executed and one died of starvation in a prison. One crew made it to Russia.
Only 62 survived the war. A movie, "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," with Van Johnson and Spencer Tracy was produced about the bravery of Doolittle Raiders. MGM proclaimed that the movie represented the story "with supreme pride."
Beginning in April of 1946 the survivors started a traditional that each year they would meet in a different city. When they met in Tucson in 1959 the city in a gesture of respect and gratitude gave them 80 silver goblets each with a name of a Raider engraved upon the goblet. Every year thereafter, a wooden display case bearing the 80 silver goblets was transported to the reunion city. Those Raiders who were no longer with them, their goblet was placed upside down. In that same case was a unopened 1896 (the year of Doolittle's birth) bottle of Hennessy Very Special Cognac. The plan was when there were only two raiders left they would open the bottle and toast their comrades.
The plan would change in April 2013 because one of the five , Tom Griffin passed away at age 96 in February 2013. Thus, at the April reunion in Ft. Walton, Florida only Dick Cole (Doolittle's co-pilot) Robert Hite, Edward Saylor and David Thacther remain and they decided to meet later this year to get together one more time very informally and in absolute privacy open the bottle fill their silver goblets and raise them in a toast to those who have gone. All of these men are in their nineties.
I do not know if the four Raiders are still with us or if they have opened the bottle yet but wanted to share the toast with them in this blog.
THE KITTY JUSTICE IS TO RAISE YOUR GLASS AND TOAST THESE BRAVE MEN.
All of the information was sent to me in an E mail with the request to forward it but I could not resist putting it on my blog.

The Kitty Justice is that after the first incident--- either the Devil would had been eliminated or I would have left.
BTW My Baptist sister said I was looking at it wrong but Peaches and I both were of the same mind.

I stumbled upon them yesterday as I was consolidating some items in my closet. Not a fun job, but as the old saying goes "Someone has to do it ". With my darling pack rat family which is a good thing if you like history but other things just get in the way. I made a collage out of several photos and in the upper left corner shows the Frist Museum and the Union Station. Also a street lamp in the lower left corner that I found interesting.
Here is a little history about the Episcopal Christ Church Cathedral. It was founded in 1829 and the main building by architect, Francis Kimball was completed in 1894. The tower was completed in 1947 and the architect was Russell E. Hart. It is located at 900 Broadway and became the Diocesan Cathedral by designation in 1997. The facade faces South in this sandstone Gothic revival style Church. Great Uncle Owen and his wife Great Aunt Byrd were members and they later help start St. Georges Episcopal Church. I will try and get a photo of the plaque sometime honoring Aunt Byrd. I have only been in the Church one time and I must admit I was too busy looking around to remember the service. They have a tour weekly and that has been on my bucket list awhile.
The Kitty Justice is as soon as I can tie my walking shoes I may wonder downtown.

NO I DID NOT BEND OVER AS THIS TOOL HAS A LONG HANDLE AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO WAS POKE THE TWO PRONG HEAD AROUND A WEED WHERE IT EXITS THE GROUND AND THEN TWIST THE BUGGER OUT OF THE EARTH.
