Well, today is the day...
I took this picture on the way to my Dad's house last week (Asheboro), and I cropped and framed it last night. I figured all along I'd post it today. Technically it has some issues, but hopefully you will enjoy it anyway.
I drove past Uncle Sam and turned around and came back to ask him if I could take his picture. He said, "Sure!" Apparently I wasn't the first to ask, but it was kindof an assertive and bold thing for me to do and not really my style. I was so nervous, I didn't ask him his real name, but I did note that the beard is real and ask if he helps out Santa at Christmas to which he said yes:-)
In most of the cities near me, there is a Liberty Income Tax Service, and in most of them either Uncle Sam or The Statue of Liberty is out front encouraging us to get our taxes filed with them.
Thanks for your time and comments yesterday on the Carolina Allspice...
I am planning a trip to see Dad and Mom this weekend. Dad is in rehab as I said yesterday and has started his therapies and we're taking one day at a time now. The nurses did share with me that he's asserting his independence:-)
