Armistice Day



…or Veterans Day:  The eleventh month, the eleventh day, the eleventh hour.




Fort Rosecrans, up on top of the Point where many will leave prayers for family members today.  My father is in Chula Vista.  He served in the Army.  Up on the side of the Point lie George's dad, he served in the Army Air Corps.  There’s my dear friend Dale.  He too was in the Army but in a different war as was Bobbies husband, Mikey.

The old Fort is a focus for those family members and friends who lie elsewhere.  Don and his friend Gene.  Paul…who served in Korea…the forgotten war.

Who will you remember today.



  • Himself:  Food sitting heavy but ok. 


  • Herself:  Oh, guilt…I took flyers to a meeting and ate cookies.


  • Reading:  Still “Lady Bird and Lyndon.”


  • Gratitudes:  That it’s been a lovely sunny day.

    1. Quiet, wet day here. Parade downtown at 10am. Grandson sang in school concert yesterday. One was the Air Force song, which was about the Army Air Force when I was his age :-). No more caissons rolling along either. They were good as well as enthusiastic.

      Hope your day is good. Got Lady Bird and Lyndon on hold at the library.

    2. I looked at the Lady Bird book, but ended up buying a book about Hemingway. Go figure...

    3. Mainly my uncles who covered both wars.
      When you mentioned Laybird I thought of children's books but now realise what you meant:)

    Slowly things come together for the holiday.  I’ve sent out a couple of real cards.  Everybody else can just put up with Images on Faceb...
