Have you met Hilda? Hilda is a famous pin-up girl of the 50's - 80's. Now when you think pin-up - you are probably thinking of those skinny models who graced the covers of calendars and magazines, right? Well, Hilda is nothing like that. She is a free spirited voluptuous young women created by watercolor artist Duane Bryers. She is willing to try anything and is so not embarrassed by her curves. If she could she would run through the meadows in her birthday suit. She is my kind of girl - the kind you could be best friends with and have the most fun. She will try anything -
Golfing with strawberries and her pink bra!
Climbing the apple tree!
Hanging out with her friends!
Walking the tightrope!!
Swimming with the fishes!
No, there isn't much Hilda won't try but perhaps her least favorite is -
I was raised in the South - where football is every breath we breathe, flip flops are year round, we pull over to let a funeral procession pass, we don't have fireflies - we have "lightning bugs", "tatars and maters" are mandatory, "yall" is a proper noun, chicken is fried, biscuits come with gravy, banana pudding is dessert, we drink "sweet milk" and sweet tea is the house wine, and you NEVER, EVER DISRESPECT YOUR ELDERS, especially family, 'course that is Southern raising.

God Bless our Military
It is the Military, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of press.
It is the Military, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the Military, not the politicians, that ensures our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
What my parents taught me....
Religion - "You better pray that comes out of the carpet!" Logic - "Because I said so, that's why" Irony - "Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about". Wisdom - "When you get my age you will understand". Justice - "One day you will have kids, I hope they turn out just like you".
'When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a singe bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything You gave me." '~ Erma Bombeck
