Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

Oh, my gracious ... I remember those sprayers. Does that make me 'older than dirt'? ;D

13 Oct 2012 1:05pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you very much Judy! Yes, I remember many years ago when they used to spray DDT from crop dusters over the cities! So I guess the answer is no, not older than dirt; but of a certain vintage......yes! ;-)

Slackwater - Don from Spokane, United States

A fine shot to remind us of products. I worked as a guide-on for a spray plane as a youngster and marked where to come across a field of a large flag. The field got sprayed and me too. Yuck! ;-)
