Thankful for our Veterans Thursday

We are very thankful today for all who have served and are serving in the armed forces, in all branches, at home and abroad.  Whether in wartime or in peacetime, our freedoms are secure because of these brave men and women who have put their lives on the line, sacrificing so much of themselves in service to our country.  Our mommy's grandpa's grandpa served in the Civil War, her great-grandpa served in WWI, and both her grandpas served in WWII, one of her grandpas also serving in Korea then in the National Guard and as a military schoolteacher in an American school in Germany.  God bless you all!

We also remember today our doggie auntie, who helped raise our mommy.  Her name was Trixi, and today's her Bridge Day anniversary.  She was the baby of the family before Mommy was born, but quickly took on the role of protector of her new "people puppy", giving Mommy a big SLUUUUURRRRRRPPPP as soon as Grandma and Grandpa brought her home from the hospital!  Trixi was 13 years old when she went to the Bridge in 1986.
