Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a nice meal and somebody to share it with! I have much to be thankful for.I plan on making the meal at my house this year for a change.

Veteran's Day

On Veterans Day we honor all,
Who answered to a service call.
Soldiers young, and soldiers old,
Fought for freedom, brave and bold.
Some have lived, while others died,
And all of them deserve our pride.
We’re proud of all the soldiers who,
Kept thinking of red, white and blue.
They fought for us and all our rights,
They fought through many days and nights.
And though we may not know each name,
We thank ALL veterans just the same.
