                                                            M stands for marching

Midshipmen marching onto the field at the Naval Academy. A sight to touch your heart.

M stands for Market

Here I am (in the black & white jacket) shopping at Graysons, my favorite farmers market

M stands for Midshipmen

Okay, I already did midshipmen! But those young men give so much for all of us. They deserve all the recognition they can get.

M stands for Monument

My Mother and step-dad standing in front of the Alabama monument at Gettysburg battlefield.

M stands for Morse code

Elbert was a radioman in the U. S. Navy and he knew the Morse code until the last few months before he died. Here he is showing our son how to use a code key at the Pony Express Museum in St. Jo, Mo.

M stands for Mice

Years and years ago I made these cute little church mice out of grey felt. I dressed them in red choir robes covered with white lace over the robe and they are holding little song books. They still come out to 'sing' every Christmas.

M stands for mushroom

You can't imagine what I had to climb over to get a shot of this mushroom. It was too cute to pass up.


  1. Hearing and seeing the men and women in uniform makes joy in my heart.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I ditto Patsy's comment about the men and women in uniform.

    Thinking of you .... have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. I love all your 'm's!!
    I really love that picture of your sweet hubby showing your son how to do morse code. Does your son still know how to do it ??
    Thanks for getting the picture of the mushroom. Sounds like it was quite and adventure :)

  4. Wonderful M's! Loved seeing Dad doing the Morse Code. Great posts Mom!
