Some fellow I know is too lazy to do his weeding and begin day one of a two day lawn cutting. Using nearing rain as a profoundly adequate excuse. Picked these Cinquefoil next the my mailbox and headed downstairs to the studio instead. I have been enjoying Ken Burns Civil War documentary, after finishing his The West documentary.

His Vietnam War series will be released this year and I will undoubtedly use it in my Vietnam PTSD group with my guys.
