Happy Veteran's Day and Happy Belated Marine Corps Birthday #242!

We celebrated here yesterday with messages back and forth with our Marine, David.  I forgot to post here about it.  Sigh....

You can put Marines in the search box on my blog and see photos of David and of  Gene and I at the Marine Corps Ball when we were overseas.  It is the "grandest" day at our Embassies except for Independence Day.  Semper Fi.

You can read the message from General Robert B. Neller, Marine Corps Commandant, here:

Happy 242 David and all the Marines!  Semper Fi!

Today we are going to the Veterans Celebration here in Bastrop.  It is always a nice thing.  Then this evening to dinner in Smithville and to The Bugle Boy for some Susan Gibson.

Hope you have a great Veterans Day!!  Thanks to all the veterans for their service!!  We are the land of the free because of the BRAVE. 

Our vets, David and Gene.

Hello, I do think your blog may be having browser compatibility problems.

Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you
with a quick heads up! Apart from that, great blog!

Anonymous, I think that is a Blogger issue. My settings aren't supposed to squeeze. I will check it out. Thank you. :)

That is a great picture of David and Gene. Thank them for their service - something I am sure you are proud of.

Bag Blog, thanks so much. That was about a year and a half ago. Wow, time flies.
