In getting ready for our pig roast (also known as the Tax Day Celebration of Pork) last Friday I had several projects going all at once.  It’s typical when getting ready for a “get together” though something like this takes a little more work.  I was cutting wood, stacking the fire, cleaning up, hanging the flag in the yard, planting last minute flowers (don’t ask) and just various and sundry tasks that have to be completed before people wander through your yard.

I tend to bounce from one task to another and leave things laying around the house until everything gets done.  In doing all of this I walked past our kitchen table several times before I noticed the accidental juxtaposition of the items laying there.  When I did notice I snapped a quick picture with the phone and posted it to Facebook.

I thought the picture was cool enough that it deserved a title and went through several ideas before I settled on calling the picture simply “Entitlement”:


If you can come up with a better name for it I’d love to hear it.

    I think I prefer
    “A Republic Madam, if you can keep it”, or…
    “Freedom isn’t FREE”.

    But I like the photo and, as always, I like your attitude, brother.


Please feel free to comment. I love hearing from you!
