Special Award, Music and Then An Award

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I can think of no better tribute to our armed forces past and present than a musical rendition. Yesterday I watched most of the World War II mini-series on the history channel. What a leap from teenager to armed warrior. I bow my head and say thank you, I gladly place my hand on my heart when they play the National Anthem and I never forget what liberties I have because of you.

If you are a veteran or currently serving please except the small award above as my thank you. Now for your music.

For the rest of you normal, non-fighting folks, I have another award.

Last week I received this irresistible award from Ms Yvonne at Welcome to my World of Poetry. If you are not following her, shame on you. Ms Yvonne can take any situation and turn it into poetry. She also is addicted to sliding boards and music, so leave your speakers on. Thank you so much Yvonne. I was just happy to have you back on-line sharing with us.

I pass this award on to:
Flying High In the Sky, she too writes poetry and needs some followers. Go give her a look see and tell her I sent you.
Roland @  Writing in the Crosshairs. What can say if you do not already know Roland. A total master of depth and description, if he were a painter galleries would be fighting over his master pieces. Give him a gander.

That's it for today. The squirrels are mad, I got the leaves raked. My PC is acting like it has the flu so I'm keeping this short.

Peace My Children...

Very nice Jules. I will check out the other folks. My father served in WWII. As an only child he served in England and did a lot with the orphans there. My stepfather also served during WWII. He flew a spy play over Japan and had one hand gun with one bullet to use on himself if he got shot down. Fortunately, that didn't happen.

That would be spy plane...not play. And my Dad didn't see action because he was an only child. I wasn't very clear about that.

As for me, I'm still proud to be an American. Glad you're honoring Vets and our country today, Jules.

Thanks so much for the award. And even more thanks for the words that would make it hard for me to wear a hat if I wore one!

Your words truly lifted my spirits that were feeling rather bruised by a friend dying. Have a great end of week.

Great post Jules. Everybody remember that Rememberance Day is celebrated by many nations, not just the lovely ole US of A. Britain and Australia for sure were in just as deep, the Brits maybe more than everybody else. Let's honour the fallen from ALL nations - and those currently still fighting and losing their lives for whatever silly reason..:)
