Memorial Day Remembers Military Soldiers’ Sacrifices as we finish our long weekend celebrations and ceremonies.
One of the most poignant monuments to me is the statue on Iwo Jima, where 5 US Marine and 1 Navy Hospital Corpsman planted the American Flag during the World War II Battle for the Pacific Island. As a tribute to all of our military soldiers, I’m posting this the day after Memorial Day, so we may continue to be grateful for the freedoms and rights we enjoy in the United States everyday.
We visited many monuments as my Late Pops, who loved history, enjoyed seeing them on family vacations. We probably could have moved into the Smithsonian Institute and he would have been happy. I remember my brothers playing around cannons at Gettysburg, watching glass blowing in Williamsburg, visiting the White House and most of the Washington DC MMonuments and many other historic places. Pops was able to visit the WWII Monument, a big thrill for him.
Maybe those travels led me to loving the mountains where I live now. For a Midwesterner, Pikes Peak and the Rockies were and are still glorious to me. Seeing the woods and the mountains every day from my home and workplace is wonderful and I’m very grateful to have that opportunity. The views when I have my Silhouette® window shadings drawn over the glass in the open position and slightly filtered by the sheers, are marvelous. I can see that snow on Pikes Peak, even in the summer if we get rain at our lower altitudes. Those views plus the added insulation, UV protection and partial privacy are winning qualities for owning Silhouette® shadings by Hunter Douglas.
The shadings are gorgeous; they light living spaces with a diffused aura, providing energy for us. We love it and so do bugs, moths and insects, who enter the blind’s vane openings from the sides. Because my clients wanted an easy, safe way to remove the offending pests, we invented the CamilyWand™ Sticky Bug Removal Tool™. It’s an all purpose tool that uniquely grabs anything it touches with the sticky tip. It removes debris and bugs from other places and shadings like Nantuckets, Luminettes®, Pirouettes®, Vignettes®, Soleras™ and others made by different manufacturers. It is available on the shop page of our CamilyWand™ website or by phoning Lynn.
We at CamilyWand™ hope you enjoy your last days of school, your graduations and the start of a safe summer!
