Guard of Honour

This is a video of the Guard of Honour being inspected by Prince William in Calgary, July 8, 2011.  Our Son Lt. Connor Readman, was part of this history.  Five seconds into this clip you see the Prince walk behind Lt. Readman (he is holding a sword upward) to inspect the Lt.'s troops.

My latest ATCs were to be in the theme of close to home.  The first one is titled "Mile Zero City", which is where I live, the second is titled "MAS Chat", which is what I do every morning over coffee.  Hope you like these little creations of art, I sure enjoyed making them.
