Welcome to my Home Page!

Thank you for visiting my page!
No...there isn't a whole lot here right now. But, check back every once in awhile.

This is a 'work-in-progress'.

I am intending on using this site to post my favorites!
And, that could be anything from a great picture that I ran across...a great phrase that I heard...
or, just a lil' diddy I'd like to share with everyone!

Like this one below!
This one was sent to me by an 'Angel'! (she knows who she is)
I loved it so much...I wanted to share it with ya'll!

"I Wish You Enough..."

Recently, I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport.
They had announced her departure and, standing near the security gate, they hugged and he said, "I love you. I wish you enough."

She in turn said, "Daddy, our life together has been more than enough.
Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Daddy."

They kissed and she left. He walked over toward the window where I was seated.
Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry.
I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking,
"Did you ever say goodbye to someone knowing it would be forever?"

"Yes, I have," I replied.
Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me.
Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me.
So I knew what this man was experiencing.

"Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever goodbye?" I asked.

"I am old and she lives much too far away.
I have challenges ahead, and the reality is, the next trip back will be for my funeral," he said.

"When you were saying goodbye I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.'
May I ask what that means?"

He began to smile. "That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations.
My parents used to say it to everyone."
He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more.
"When we said 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them,"
he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory:

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hellos" to get you through the final "Good-byes."

He then began to sob and walked away.

I am a PROUD American!

In memory of the cowardly acts of 9/11...

We must never forget...for the sake of our children...and in the honor for those who have died in the name of Freedom!


I'm also a HUGE fan of the Blues!

Here's a drawing of mine...of the late, great...

Stevie Ray Vaughn

This drawing was inspired by a good friend who just needed a smile!


And, as you can probably submize from my name...Salteeaire...I'm also a HUGE Parrothead!!!
