a memorial day thank you.

Poor is the community that has no heroes, poorer still is the one that having them, forgets.

Happy memorial day to all, but mostly to those who deserve it, as in those who we celebrate today. Thank you for serving our country, and serving it with your whole heart, thank you for giving so much, sometimes what others think to be too much...but mostly for being willing to give so that I can live here, in safety and freedom. Thank you for your service.

My family who has served in the Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard:
Thank you Ross.
Thank you Dad.
Thank you Grandpa Durand.
Thank you Grandpa Jackson.
Thank you Uncle Jack.
Thank you Grandpa Marble.
Thank you Grandpa Cox.

You are right, I stayed home because I have a problem with all this beer drinking and next day hangover that i did see in some people this morning. It is after all a somber day (in France it isn't a jolly holiday it is quiet somber) and there is a war going on...ok I am done coming down from my soap box :)Happy to see the post just now on your blog.

I haven't forgotten the tag or reviews, I am getting to them and need to tag some people
