Salute!

MJ & Sissy April 2007

Happy Dogs on Thursday, little friday, Veterans Day, Thankful Thursday and most of all, happy birthday MJ!

It’s an awful photo in technical terms, but I hope you can see her full-face smile and the tender love she’s giving her grand-dog.  I’m really blessed to have a very sweet, kind, giving little mother inlaw, and I hope this year is a great one for her, filled with lots of dreams coming true!

The fur-girls have a cute post today with a few questions for you at the end.  Of course, they join me here wishing their gramma a very happy birthday.

Veterans Day is very special to me, aside from it marking the anniversary of MJ’s birth.  If memory serves, most or all of those men are also veterans.  You can see my posts from years past for details on those in my family and friends who have or are serving in our armed forces.  I challenge each of you in the States to take a moment today to pause, reflect, honor and give thanks, because freedom isn’t free.  And if you see a veteran, be sure to thank him or her for serving.

    Happy Birthday MJ!! 🙂

    I worked on Veteran’s day, & the only person who said squat to me about being a veteran, was the only other veteran that works with me who was also working today. Go figure.

    And Levi leaves for Cali tomorrow morning, training before the offical leaving.
