"Unconditional Surrender"

San Diego (Feb. 10, 2007) - The statue “Unconditional Surrender,” which represents a famous photo taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt of a Sailor kissing a nurse in Time Square, New York City 1945, was dedicated to the city of San Diego. Edith Shain, the nurse in the photo and guest of honor at the ceremony greeted the crowd. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist Seaman David A. Brandenburg.

Wow, it was so neat to see this, it's huge, just amazing and beautiful to see in person. The sunset that night was spectacular too!
My son Luke came in 62nd as a co-angler for the tournament. The cut to fish today is #30 so he didn't get to fish today. He ended up with 4 fish at 6 .7 lbs. for the two days. I think that's pretty good for his 2nd tournament and 200 entries as co-anglers. He got a lot of experience and great contacts so it was a success. He is heading back to MN this weekend, can't wait to see him, he's been gone for 3 wks. His next tournament is April 30-May 2nd in Decatur Alabama on Wheeler Lake. Hopefully Gordy and I can go to that one.
It's supposed to be in the 30's today, we're having a tropical heat wave, lol! You will probably see some hardy souls out in shorts today they will think it is so warm after the freezing cold temps we've had here this winter. I wish it would melt some of our 3 ft of snow on the ground but I don't' think it will since it is only going to last one day then cool back down for a while again. Today might be a good day to go sledding, my brother from Florida that just moved here wants to, we'll see.
I bet your wondering when I'm gonna get back to crafting. I plan to take next week and get my craft room cleaned and organized then hopefully get back to work real soon. I am feeling the itch to get to work. I took both of my sewing machines in to get cleaned and tuned up so I thought while they are in the shop I need to organize for the year. Also working on taxes, fun stuff huh! Have a wonderful safe weekend everyone!

Hi Debbie,
Great photo! My niece and her husband live in San Diego. We hope to go visit them as we have never been to Calf. before. My niece had been here for the 7 months while her husband was in Iraq, but she is back there now as he comes home tomorrow.
I've been doing tax stuff for my business also...not the most fun part of having your own business, but has to be done.
Hope you're having a great weekend.
Cindy
