Go From Where Your Blood Came

I had this thought for a while now and today I'm going to write it  My thought and idea was and is, what if we all go back to live where our ancestors were born before someone decided to sail and land in what is now called, The United States of America?
My grandfather and before him were from England.  My other grandparents were from Poland.  So, I thought about that and how about if we all do it and leave this country where only the Native Americans belong, and go back to "where our blood came from?"
In case, like myself, we have more than one country's blood...then you get to choose which country you want to reside but are allowed to travel or live part time in both or more countries where your blood came from. 
I LOVE this idea!
Half of my Blood is from England
I chose this house in England (for now), maybe I'll find somewhere or some other house I like better, I didn't have a lot of time to look. :)  So, I belong in England at least half of my time on Earth or I can split my time with the country below from where the other half of my blood is from.
The other half of my blood is from Poland.
I have a feeling I may feel like I belong in England more than I belong in Poland but I may never know now.  It was just a fun and interesting thought. I chose the house below to live in but may want to look out where there is farmland...didn't have a lot of time to look yet.
This I know...the more I listen to the news the more I feel that this is not my America.  It's not the America I knew as a child.  People can't get along with one another.   Blood is all mixed up and babies are born and they have babies and more blood is mixed up.  Could I be on to something?  
I'm not at an age where I am able to go back to my "blood roots" but I wonder what the world would be like if everyone stayed and lived where there blood was from in the beginning.  I suppose we could all go back to the beginning of our bloodline and where would that put us?  In Egypt?  Or were we or are we from Starseed?  Maybe our souls don't have blood...just our bodies, but I am talking about us physically here, so that is for another time.
Till my next idea or thought...something to think about. (I DO love English Tudors!)

Chairs #1, #2, #3, and #4 - Done!

Chair #1 - (Tom's chair)
We are in the process of painting our 4 metal yard & deck chairs and having lots of fun! 
I chose 4 different colors for chairs and different colors for the flowers and leaves for trim. 
(birdbath will be painted after chairs are done)
I took this where I painted it, on the deck. 
The colors really popped in the sun but are more true in the shade. The chair itself is in "Adobe Dust." The flowers are in a blue tone called, "Seacliff Heights."  The leaves are beautiful in "Leprechaun Green!" :) 

Chair #2 - (my chair)
I love this color..."Seacliff Heights" 
although it looks more grey than blue, but it works and all 3 colors are used in both chairs and compliment each other.
In its proper place
Now we can both sit outside in the front when we want to in our respective chairs! :) 
They are fun to paint and chairs #3 & #4 will be painted with trim and finished today. Yay!

Chair #3 
We can both sit here...for when I want to sit in the sun and when Tom and I are both on the deck.
"Traditional Yellow"
My favorite 3 colors!
Pale but I still like the way it turned out.
Much better than the rusty yellow we had!

Chair #4 - My Chair!
I like to sit here against the house so I can see the whole back yard as well as being in the shade.
"Frosted Rose"
Done! The deck is finished painted new and newly painted chairs front and back. We have all our flowers for the season and the fence has been painted except for one fence line. Tom's ready to paint the birdbath that is near the bushes close to  his chair. The pedestal will be painted in the  "Seacliff Heights" and top in "Leprechaun Green."

Pretty Spring Blooming Trees

These trees don't stay in bloom long, so while I was driving my golf cart around the yard I stopped to take a few photos on this lovely day.  :)

Personal Messages from Matthew & Gunnar Nelson

~ Matthew Nelson ~
This is the beginning of the CAMEO I booked by Matt, Rick Nelson's son, but the video didn't copy so it'll remain private unless you're one of my FB friends. I posted this there along with one from his brother, Gunnar! I can't say enough about the generosity and kindness of these two men - I will cherish these messages, and yes, song I requested. (Lonesome Town)
~ Gunnar Nelson ~
I had tickets to see their show last November but the venue was too large for me for different reasons. I like smaller and this was just the wrong place for me. However, today made up for it with personal messages and singing from both - Matthew had the Ricky Nelson Remembered background - it was so special. God Bless these guys and I can't wait for their new CD to come out - "First Born Sons!"
