Here is Xena, the newest member of the Matney household. She’s a rescue from the local shelter that I photograph at. We think she is about 2 years old. She is so different than Cookie, our dog who passed away last year.
Taking a walk at lunch around Scott Air Force Base I got a chance to take a picture of the Luftbrücke. It is a sculpture commemorating the Berlin Airlift. There is a companion piece to this, which is located at the former Rhein Main Air Base in Frankfurt Germany, where I was also stationed in the mid-90s. It is a testament to the men and women who kept the supplies flowing to the city of West Berlin during the blockade. If you are ever on the base stop and get the chance stop to take a look.
