all left to the meek

Left to the meek...and sometimes to the undeserving!

Interesting concept. What on earth will they do with the money? A humble adventure for this couple.

Amusing. . . and she, especially looks meek. Were appearances deceiving?

I have Mike Disfarmer's book of photos. It's a wonderful collection. I love how he chose his name.

Ah yes, I remember, "the meek will inherit the earth", "daisies are my silver, buttercups my gold" ...

This is very thought provoking. Thanks.
It is said that the meek shall inherit the world, but so far it seems like they’ve only ever been downtrodden and exploited by the corrupt and greedy. That’s life I guess…..

Have a good week, Boonie
