An 11.11.11 Thank You

This shell will always have a special place on our bookshelves. It's a memento from my Dad's Basic Training days at Parris Island.

He wrote the date on the shell. I can see him walking the shoreline of Port Royal Sound and finding this treasure as he contemplated his next steps into WWII.

I've been wanting to preserve the shell as a journal sketch for the longest time. I can't think of a better day... a more special day than today... to honor it forever :)

Dog Days of August

August in the South Carolina low country is in full force. Heat indexes daily from 101 to 108.

Grizz and Dudley prefer to sit on the screened in porch than hang out in the air conditioned house.  Thankfully the porch faces WNW and the sun's rays don't appear until very late in the day.
