Enchant your every day: Flame

This wonderful challenge has been pretty fun so far.  It’s not to late to join in, if you are so inclined.  Check out Vanessa Sage, and join the fun.  Elizabeth from Tea and Paper is playing too, check out her photos, they are great.

Today’s word is Flame.  I found a cool pic.  Can you hear the grate of the flint?  I got burned by these so often, I subconsciously rubbed my thumb where I used to have a little callous.  These type of lighters were everywhere 25 years ago, and a must for most concerts in the 70’s and 80’s.

Remembering those who sacrificed.  Happy Memorial Day.

I’m so grateful for our country, our remaining freedom, our soldiers, and their families.  God Bless them all.
