Veteran's Day 2008

My grandpa, United States Army, WWII. Wasn't he a handsome young soldier?

A worthy tribute to all veterans everywhere. Please take the time to remember those who have served and are serving for our country, our freedom.

Your grandpa looks so good in his uniform! My grandpa was also in WW II. We were always so proud of him and all the other soldiers for what they have done and are doing for our country.

Seems the men in your family are quite handsome indeed.

Nice pic, nice post, and nice sentiment. I wish I had the picture of my dad in his Army uniform, but it is at my mom's house. He was quite a looker himself.

Stay sweet -

P.S
I forgot to ask what breed of dog and how big they are so I could tell you how much Vitamin-E you can give. And just so ya know it may make their stools a little soft too.

Oh Lisa... thank you for the sweet note, but honestly I went over and over in my head on whether or not to post about my birthday. I am NOT one of those girls LOL Taking the pictures and posting them was more of a cleansing process then anything ... yikes!

Oh and the hubby thing.... we were both mistreated so much in the past we just appreciate each other, that's all. It's a much longer story than I've talked about believe me, but our kids from both marriages read the blog so I can't go there. I'm sure you get what I'm saying ;)

Anyway, thank you!
(((hugs)))
