This is a very sly way on my part to not only show the pride I have in my mom, but it gives me the opportunity to wish those here in the U.S.A. a Happy Independence Day.
Because I live in the United States of America, and today is our Independence Day, I thought I would post this!
This is an example of making a frame out of an odd piece of wood, when everything else fails! This is a piece of oak I found. The beautiful woman is my late mother Norma F.Slay who served our country in the United States Coast Guard during the 2nd World War.This is one of the first pieces I made, mainly because My Father was able to have the original picture re-made and he sent me and my two brothers this picture 3 years ago, although the original still hangs in my Dad’s house the one I grew up in and has been there since before I was born.
Happy Independence Day!
And it goes without saying but I will anyway,
Since I can not get this picture to show the whole picture in those brown boxes, I do not know if everyone else can. If you cannot see the picture whole please let me know. I would want to remove it out of respect, Thanks
