Made me Smile !

This made me smile  --

A man from Rhode Island
Wayne Rowe

Visits Magnolia Cemetery Cemetery in Charleston S.C.
 Sees A remembrance token placed in the Cemetery.

Placed by Wanda Jean King

And recognizes it as my work !

Then sends me pictures

 and this Comment --

"Today at Magnolia Cemetery, I was looking at H. L. Hunley's third crew's graves when I noticed several mementos left at the base of each headstone. Then it struck me that these appear to be the fine work of my friend David Tatum Jr. Nice job David."

It's nice when your work is recognized, appreciated and acknowledged !

I guess I'll keep making them !

Liars and Racist Laid Bare - OH MY !

Liar !
Kristin Szakos

I guess Kristin was making the Facts fit her agenda.
The removal of the Lee statue in Charlottesville.
Image result for Robert Edward Lee Sculpture

Turns out it's not the KKK but the

The Richmond Light Infantry Blues

Local Historians had informed Kristin of her error !

I found this at Kristin's F/B page seems appropriate --

That shoe fits rather well !

Racist !
Wes Bellamy

His Tweets speak for themselves.

Pray for the Citizens of Charlottesville.

They need all the help they can get !


Now Then !

Had Joe Smith a White Supremacist been photographed at a VA Flagger event.

Levin, Hall, Simpson and their Peanut gallery's would be on it like White on Rice ! 

But seeing as how the racist and liars in C-Ville have the same Anti Confederate agenda,

You'll not hear a peep out of them.
