Veterans Day

Hi Everyone,

I'm back and will hopefully be posting every day this week.  Today in the US, we are observing Veteran's Day.  Originally it was Armistice day and we still have services at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  Of course, these days, it is more about selling mattresses.  Or is that Presidents Day?  I can't keep track.

Here at our house, I am hugging my favorite Veteran, and taking time to recognize the others.

This is my guy back a few years ago when he was in Afghanistan. 
While I think that the whole "Keep Calm" thing is getting a bit tired, I really do like this one:

I'll be back tomorrow with some quilting! 

Have a great day,


  1. A grateful nation thanks your husband (and you) for your sacrifice and service. Linda

  2. Many thanks to your husband and his comrades for their service to our country... and to all military families who also serve by supporting their soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and coasties!

  3. Have a wonderful Veteran's Day with your favorite vet. And, tell him thanks from us. Lane

  4. Thank your vet for me. I wish I could hug mine today. At least he's on home soil. I wonder if they were in Afghanistan together.

  5. Many thanks to your husband for his service to our country. And many thanks to you and your family for the sacrifices you have made as a military family.

  6. I'm with you on the "Keep Calm" thing, but I will always be happy to thank a veteran!!

  7. Mattresses! lol
    Thank your husband for me too please!

  8. So glad there are people like your husband who serve our country and protect our freedom. A big "Thank you" to him, and to your family for all the sacrifices you make.
