Happy Veteran’s Day!

Happy Veteran’s Day everyone! I have great respect for those that serve our country. It amazes me that individuals will give their life to protect people they don’t know. So if you are a veteran or currently serving- Thank you.

Many restaurants and businesses are offering free meals, haircuts, etc. today to the military. Here is the link to the most comprehensive list I could find:


IHOP has free red, white and blue pancakes. Olive Garden, Applebees, Country Buffet and many others have free meal offers as well. LucyveteransThis is the photo I posted last year of Lucy with an Air Force photo of my Dad and the flag from his coffin. I hope they are together in Heaven.

VETERANS USA 2015Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for the graphic


  1. If there’s a “reunion” of Air Force personnel in heaven (and I’m sure there is!) perhaps our Dads have met there……the case your Dad’s flag is in, is just like the one I have with my Dad’s flag. I think of ALL men and women and even animals who have served our country and it makes me PROUD. Very.

    Hugs, Pam

    1. I am sure our Dads would meet in Heaven 🙂 That is a nice thought. I am very thankful for all who served or are currently serving. XO

  2. I’m sure if all Air Force personnel have a reunion in heaven from time to time, our Dads have met…..the case you have for your Dad’s flag is just like the one I have with my Dad’s flag…….proud daughters we are. We honor all men, women AND animals who have served in the military to keep us safe, secure and FREE. Happy Veteran’s Day………..

    Hugs, Pam

  5. Meowmy used to work in a Canadian Veteran’s Hospital, and now in her current workplace in Michigan, she still works with many of them. Different countries, same thanks and gratitude needed and deserved. What amazing men and women they truly are.
    When meowmy was visiting in Canada, recently she bought some poppies, they are the symbol of ‘Remembrance Day’ in Canada and other countries, too; she wore it on her jacket, its still on there and she got many questions/remarks about it. They are used on account of that poem: In Flanders’s Fields The Poppies Grow.
    The veteran who was ‘selling’ the poppies was a Scotsman, who many years ago served in a military unit too. She and he had a good talk together. And of course she thanked him too.

    1. That was nice of your Mommy to thank veterans. When I give donations by the grocery store, I get a paper poppy 🙂

      1. What iss sadder iss that GranPaw’ss Mumma was alive inn Leipstag camp in Poe-land until thee day befur Liberashun. Thee bad men found out thee Alliess were on thee way an they lined all thee prisoners up an gunned them down 🙁
        Granpaw onlee found out where hiss Mumma was buried inn the late 1990’ss….hee did go back to Germany twice (paid bye thee Governmint) so hee saw thee other burial sites butt not hiss Mumma’ss.
        Mee prayss thiss nevurr happens again Lady Ellen an Purrincess Phoebe.
        Now youss’ know why mee middle name iss Henry….inn memoree…
        When GranPaw an Neffew came to Canada they gotted a more English soundin name…so GranPaw was known as Henry Heinz T********** an his neffew was called George Guenther R********.
