Veteran's Day

A big warm Thank You to all our veterans that served our country.  Your courage and sacrifices do not go unnoticed. You are thought of and prayed for often.

Here are my two veterans:

  This is my dad. 
He had PTSD although the term wasn't really used back then.  Dad was in the Army and later the Air Force.
He was in several battles during WWII and injured a few times. 

My brother was also in Army.  
He was in some of the world turmoils, just at a different time.

They both were in Germany at one time or another.  The photo in the header was where my brother was in Germany.  I remember him telling stories of putting Coke bottles in the snow so they would have cold drinks.

Many of my dad's siblings also served in the military - brothers and sisters.  Mom's brother died in WWII.

Thank you to every Veteran who served our country.

Sibling Saturday & Sunday

Really nice weather for company today.  My sister and brother-in-law came by to pick up some outdoor stuff they left here after moving from their home into an apartment.  Their house sold quickly and they had very little time to pack and leave.  They are staying in an apartment while deciding where to go.  They have a nice little balcony too.   I'm hoping they forget about the big pots they brought over.  Well, they can take the green one but I think the blue ones should stay here. 
While they were here, my brother from Arkansas came by to pick up a tv stand.  This is one of the large tv stands where the tv goes up and then down into the shelf unit.  It was heavy and they had a hard time getting it out the door, down the steps and into the trailer.  He brought his friend from high school.  It's been too long since I've seen him too.  Hard to believe he has 1 daughter who is a senior in college and the younger daughter who is a senior in high school.  

Nice to see everyone.  And funny to hear my brother talk about traffic.  LOL.  He lives in northwest Arkansas and complains about their 'traffic' all the time.   He sounds like Mom talking about traffic in Denison (yes, she says 5 cars on the road is heavy traffic!). 

Wheeeee!  I was with my other brother and sis-in-law and we went to Denison to visit with Mom.   So that is all my siblings in a single weekend.
