A fresh coat of paint

In the latest installment of why I love my husband, Bert and I spent the morning in the Ronald D. Rankin Veterans Memorial Plaza at the Kootenai County Adminstration building. It had to be over 90 degrees before we finished cleaning and then painting the pedestal that the eagle statue rests upon. In 2005 when the plaza was re-named in my late father's honor, our family gifted the eagle to the citizens of Kootenai County. While I may serve as curator of the plaza, it's my husband's willingness to roll up his sleeves to honor his father-in-law and all veterans that makes me grateful.
