Veterans Day


I usually babysit our Otto on Wednesday, but it's Veterans Day and my daughter has the day off. We did have the little guy yesterday. He is growing up and talking up a storm now.

I find myself thinking about my uncles today. My dad was not in the service. He was too young for WWII and he wasn't called for the Korean War as he was married and I was a baby. But my Uncle Joe and Uncle Ed were in WWII and my Uncle Rich and Uncle Ray were in the Korean War. Only my Uncle Ray is still alive. I never thanked these brave men for their service. I don't think I realized what they had done for me when I was young. I wish I could say thank you to them now.

Deep respect and much gratitude to all our veterans. I dread to think what this world would be like without them

Hi Linda.....Same here. I never thanked my father or any of my uncle for their service, either. Sad but true. But I'm sure they know I am thankful, now that they are all in the other realm of life. Susan
