Veteran:   Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve, living or dead - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount "up to and including their life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. Today is Veterans Day, let us remember all of our veterans, currently living or no longer with us, for the sacrifices they have made for us.

Be sure and display - fly your flag!

How important it is for us to recognize and

celebrate our heroes and she-roes! 

~Maya Angelou

We often take for granted the very things

that most deserve our gratitude. 

~Cynthia Ozick

I think there is one higher office than

president and I would call that patriot. 

~Gary Hart

But fame is theirs - and future days

On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;

Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead -

"These for their country fought and bled."

~Philip Freneau

In war, there are no unwounded soldiers. 

~José Narosky

Thanksgiving Blessings Mix
(Please make sure you read the last paragraph)
2 cups Bugles corn snacks
2 cups small pretzel twists
1 cup candy corn
1 cup dried mixed fruit bits, raisins or dried cranberries
1 cup dry roasted peanuts or sunflower seeds
1 cup chocolate M&M brand candies
1 cup chocolate kisses
Using a quart sized wide mouth canning jar, layer ingredients listed above starting with the bugles. Once jar is filled obtain some patriotic or holiday material and cut out a square for a decorative jar lid, or use ribbon to decorate the lid. Makes about 2-1/2 quarts.
~Bugles are included as they are shaped like a horn of plenty, a symbol of our nations abundance. Pretzels are arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country. Candy corn represents the sacrifices of the pilgrims first winter as food was so scarce they survived on just a few kernals of corn a day. Nuts and sunflower seeds are our promise of a future harvest that one will reap if the seeds are planted and tended with diligence. Dried fruits represent the harvest gifts we obtain from our bountiful land. M&M's represent memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future. Chocolate kisses remind us of the love of family and friends that sweetens our lives~

Never be lacking in zeal,

but keep your spiritual fervor,

serving the Lord.

Romans 12:11 

I wish you all a very patriotic Veterans Day. The traveling Memorial Vietnam war wall was

placed in a city close to us for viewing. It is about a 10-15 min drive from us. What a honor to

have it located so close at this time honoring our veterans.

Take care, be safe and always be aware of everything and

everyone around you.

God bless all Veterans,

we salute you!
