The Navajo Code Talkers were able to send their code in 20 seconds to save the Marines under fire at Iwo Jima. If it had been sent in English, 1) it might have been over taken by enemy soldiers 2) It would take 30 minutes.
Our Marines didn't have 30 minutes until death.
The Navajo code was deciphered and help was there to save "OUR Marines!"

Welcome to "My Life" in a Website/Visual Book.
Dedicated to my friends who trusted me with their lives "creating wonderful" business memories. My Lord gave me "Creativity" teaching me Life & Love through it all.
I wish to thank Kathy Jones, Postmaster for Ava Post Office. When she asked me to do the post office Freedom Wall behind her postal clerks, we did not only become friends, but it seemed to open up things in my heart that I thought were buried and forgotten. "Postal National" liked The Freedom Wall so much, they wanted to do an article on me for their magazine. I had rebuilt my website, somewhat? But when National wanted to do an article, it renewed my strength to try and finish the website, "This Website!" I am writing this another hundred hours later. You can view "Our" FREEDOM WALL on
Monument & Landmarks; Veterans & Military; and Commissions.
The second I would like to thank is Godaddy when I found out my website of 25 years was "completely gone, a few months back, was devastated. Then I thought, "I will rebuild!" And... Several "Hundreds" of hours later ???
I virtually had to re-think and re-build my life. I think it was a "God Thing." I had to go back to the beginning, not only my artwork, but what is "my makeup!" A lot of what you see on this website, I didn't remember. I had taken care of my mother for 10 years. She passed away in 2015. We moved 1700 miles from our home to a new land in America. We had to, I wanted to care for my mom, and our finances ran out. We took our equity and again, began to rebuild. I am still in the process of rebuilding. "I don't think God wants you comfortable, HE wants you growing!"
My mom was my motorcycle buddy. Taking care of my mom, was "MY MOST Honored" experience in my life. She deserved it and I wanted to do it. Nothing was more important than my mom, not my artwork nor business! The picture you see on the right is my "beloved mother." She is 98 years old in this photo. (Mom had me later in life!) The silhouette you see taking the photo is "our beloved pastor, Dick Hillary." Mom and I rode the RoadStar to Church.
Thank YOU to My daughter, Julie Hunt, who saved my life!
Thank YOU to David Clark, Vintage West, the 1st person who ever said, "You have got talent!"
Thank YOU to Jon Locke, for teaching me how to laugh.
Thank YOU to Pastor Larry Hargus, my husband, who teaches me every day love and patience, and who picked up the pieces after Mom passed away.
This is not a Website, it is my visual BOOK, that I am still writing. It is my life in many ways, maybe even my BLOG! Many would say, this is TOO Much. Websites are supposed to be well--- more impersonal! Godaddy said they would rebuild it, BUT, Godaddy didn't have my heart. I had to rebuild it, "from My Heart!" I hope it touches Your Heart!
