I have had a tough day with a bad headache but I think I was having a reaction to some topical cream the Derm Dr. gave me for my Rosacea. Nothing seems to help. I am going to research some home remedies. Maybe something simple will help.
Lots of wonderful people posted about Veteran's Day and put up photos of their own relatives who had served. I have a long list. I wish I had all my photos but one of these days I am going to scan them all so they will be readily available. My Uncle Tom Binder who grew up in Yankton, South Dakota was in the Army Air Corp. My Uncle Edward "Munson" Trontel served as well in the U.S. Army. They both were in WWII. My dear Tata Rose, my grandmothers younger sister sent her husband off to WWI. My late brother-in-law Gary Ricklefs served in the Korean War in the U.S. Army. My sister Mary's ex husband, Bob Hoffert went to Vietnam. My sister lost many high school classmates and I found them all on the traveling wall a few years ago for her. My mom's cousin, Hedwig, in the photo on my header (she is the taller girl) lost her only son, a U.S. Marine in Vietnam. My late cousin Jesse Hoskins passed away from the effects of Agent Orange when he was a young man in his thirties. My girlfriend Kathy O'Gane, her sister Marlene and their late brother Michael all served in the U.S. Navy. My late father-in-law was at Pearl Harbor in a submarine with the U.S. Navy and my grandmothers cousin Frances lost her only son Bruce during WWII. My hubby's uncles served in the Air force (Uncle Virgil) and Bud and Duane served in several different branches of the military. My son Jeremy's good friend Ben is in the US Air Force and our daughters Rebekah and Hannah recently reunited with their good friend Dan after he served 8 years with the U.S. Navy. My husband's cousin Carolyn served as a nurse in the US Army at Desert Storm. To those who served thank you. Many have gone before us but I tip my hat to you if you served. I have said it before and I will say it again I do not believe you should be able to serve in our government political ring unless you have also served your country. Our country is currently in such a disgraceful state it is absolutely sad. Then you hear people like Tom Cruise mouth off about how hard he works in a day of filming. Crawl in a fox hole Cruise and watch your best buddy die and then come back and tell us your glory stories!
Some words to a favorite song and I will end hoping you have stopped by Sally's and joined more blue over there.
The Battle Hymn of the Republic by Andy Williams. I remember when I was just a kid that he sang this song at the funeral of Robert F. Kennedy and my dad had the 45 RPM record of it. Good memories.
Thank a Vet for your freedom and not just on this holiday.
