I love that scene that you have pictured today but based on their attire it looks like it would be too cold for me, haha.

Good morning Paul. No beach but a walk along the Lakefront with my grandson comes to mind. Enjoy your day.

So true, Paul... I have any number of friends whom I'd consider "family" sooner than some people I'm related to by blood.

Good morning Paul - there are many dysfunctional families as so that quote is true.

Hello Paul - seeing this photo and the quote's author makes me think of Jonathon Livingston Seagull.  Perhaps the pair are hoping to capture him in a photo.

Like Michael Jacobs I connected Richard Bach to Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and his other book, Illusions:  The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah.  We read them both and enjoyed them.  A

Very true. Also, even blood relatives are more enjoyable with a relationship of joy, trust, and respect.

Hi Paul- so true- and as such our true family does not have to be limited to those related to us by blood.
