The photo is not from this winter but captures my mood. Endless but sunny nonetheless.
Our shih tzu Loretta looks a lot like a mop — and a bit like Phyllis Diller —as she grows her puppy hair out.
Our little Shih Tzu dog Loretta is adorable and playful, but not so smart. Here she’s hiding under our bed to avoid being put into hers, but doesn’t realize her butt is showing. (What a princess.)

Hawaiian Senator and WWII hero Daniel Inouye took his last ride down Pennsylvania Avenue, after lying in state at the U.S. Capitol, on the morning of Friday, Dec. 21, 2012.
Today marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam, in southwest Maryland, where some 23,000 men were killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of savage combat on September 17, 1862 — the worst day of fighting in American history. It gave President Lincoln a (costly) victory with which, five days later, to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, and also saw the first battlefield photographs ever recorded.
Living in Northern Virginia, exploring these historical treasures is a pastime of mine, one I personally find very rewarding. The major confrontation occurred in “the cornfield,” which from the photos below one can tell looks a bit different today. The fighting lasted from sunup to sundown — it took another five days just to bury the dead.
A wonderful place that transports you back to the past. Marriott Ranch, Hume, Virginia.
