Honor Guard!

LtC ROBERT BEEVERS5/25/1927 - 5/17/2009
Robert served as a Deputy Sheriff for 30 years in Orange County, Ca., and continued his career as a policeman in Morro Bay, CA.

In retirement, he continued his community service by co-founding Civil Air Patrol Squadron 103, San Luis Obispo in 1983, where he attained the rank of Lt. Col.

LtC Beevers joined CAP as a cadet during WWII. He served as Squadron Commander, active in Emergency Services as a Pilot, Observer, Ground Team, and UDF. He arranged Sq 103’s current facilities at Camp San Luis Obispo.

“Col Bob” was active in Recruiting and promoting CAP everywhere he went…

He recruited (Col) Larry Myrick… who became Sq 103 Commander, Central Coast Grp CC, CAWG CC (twice) and is now our Pacific Region Commander.

His support of youth was legendary. He founded the 1st Police Explorer post in the nation in Orange County and was always there to support SQ 103 CAP Cadets in Wing schools, encampments, and activities.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations, to be used as a memorial fund to help cadets, be made to:

It was a very depressing week end. My friend and mentor, 80+ passed away after contracting meningitis's. He had been in declining health the last couple of years. He is the reason I joined the Civil Air Patrol and made the rank of Major. He will be sorrily missed. RIP Bob, love ya

Happy Mothers Day to All Mothers

Borrowed this from someone else but the sentiment is still very real. We all cherish our children.
As such we should all encourage them to get mamograms. Click on the link to help those who can't afford them, receive them. We don't want even one child to go without a mother to cherish them.

May Ornament Done!!

Star on Top-freebie
Blue Ribbon Designs
18 ct Oatmeal Fiddler Cloth
DMC my choice
Unhappily you can't see the snow very well. Will finish when I have more to do. Can't see dragging the sewing machine out for just one ornament. Now on to my exchange that is due May 31. Happy Stitching :)

This is the pinkeep from my first exchange. I guess it isn't common to stitch both sides. I had a great time figureing out what to stitch and how to finish it.
I put my partners initials in the thimble and mine in the heart on the cat. I learned a lot and know that the next one will be even better. I am looking forward to the next exchange which is a Just Nan piece. I have already started mine and am just waiting for my partners name.

Current WIP

This is my current piece. I am almost done as you can see. I hope to finish tonight. I will make it into an ornament when I have more than 1 to do.

Great Drawing!!

Edger is having a Blog Anniversary. He is giving away a surprise item. Go have a look at his finishes. Fantastic!
