I can identify A.D. I remember when my brother and I had to bring the dog we grew up with to the vet to have him put down. It was a difficult day, my prayers are with you.

thank you Doug ! Glad you like it ! i have this routine and practice at least ones every day, i mean i must have a stinged instrument in my hand everyday at least one time so that helps in trying to get better at it, but you have Good days and bad days, like today was bad day for me, i had to put my best DOG ever down, a infection  in her whoom,   we burried her this afternoon ,and doing that makes life so small and tedioes. Compered to normal routine live everyday whit only your thougts and no worry in mind ! Thanks for the kind words,

Cool imagery and some fancy playing AD. I've been to the Mississippi Delta and seen the acres of cotton fields. It's an amazing thing to see.
