This is Wednesday and it is usually a One Liner kind of day but I came across this funny photo progression of the Mona Lisa and thought you might get a kick out of it. I know we are all slowly coming out of quarantine but it made me wonder how many of us could relate to this. Well???
I hope you have a great Wednesday and are remaining happy and healthy.

Here lies a body of a soldier unknown A brave warrior snatched from this life to serve with honor and distinction What of you young man? Were you married with a pretty wife and babies in arms? Were you maybe a drafted teenager? A son of proud parents who will cry forever more We shed tears of sadness to see your unmarked grave never knowing what might have been Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing © Laura is hosting Tuesday Poetics at D'Verse tonight and has prompted us with the graves of those we do not know.

Plenty of choices to pick from for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday hosted by Jim Adams. The prompts are Big, Large, Little, Small, Tall and Tiny.
I have chosen Big Love by the amazing Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. The video is from one of their tours from the late 90s called The Dance. It’s fun to watch his amazing guitar skills. Hope you enjoy it.
