Thank a Veteran and Buy a Poppy

Today was the school district's annual Veteran's Day program.  For the eleventh year, our sixth graders have participated in a salute to the community's veterans of all armed forces and all eras.

I love the Veterans.
Forget about Hollywood, these are our true heroes.

I love all their different uniforms...

and their penchant for pins...

and the superintendent's patriotic tie...
He has a son in Afghanistan right now.

The Veterans have done hard things so the rest of us can have it easy.

November 11th is Veteran's Day.  Stuff a few dollar bills or quarters in your coat pocket and when you go shopping and see a Vet selling poppies outside of a store - buy one.

And if you really want to be patriotically inspired and hear some great singing, check out this YouTube video featuring our military and the Ten Tenors here.

Thank you, Veterans.


Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
