Happy Juneteenth. Rest in Peace Mary Boer <3


Mary's Boer's Painting of a Zulu Warrior. Happy Juneteenth

Juneteenth is the annual Celebration of word reaching Galveston, Texas that two years earlier President Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation & all slaves were now free.

This Juneteenth, I won't be online very much.

I will be joining the celebration of the life of my Mother-In-Law, Mary Boer, the artist who painted this painting. Mary died on June 12 after a lengthy stay in Hospice Care with Alzheimer's Disease.

Mary Boer was a prolific painter. All of us have several of her paintings in our homes.

My Daughter has this one.

I couldn't think of a more fitting tribute for this Day to honor my children's Grandmother who is being buried this morning & this important Texas Holiday.

So as I was preparing this Post this morning while watching the morning News, came the announcement that Senator Amy Klobuchar has dropped out of consideration of Running Mate for Joe Biden's Presidential bid.

There are no words for how disappointed I am in her this morning.

We have had a Black President.

You may have heard of him.
