    Happy Veteran's Day!

    Many thanks and prayers to all who have served, all who are serving and all who will serve.

    It was an especially touching scene when I took the dog for his walk through our local cemetery this morning. I observed a gentleman in jeans and a peaked hat walking slowly among the headstones in the section for service veterans. He was studying each stone intently before slowly moving to the next one. It seemed at though each was receiving a prayer from a grateful man with no audience. I will remember that image for a long time.
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    My wife, who's also a veteran, received a $25 Cracker Barrel gift card from her school this morning, plus we get the same free burger. Yippee!

    I know there are "free" out there today, but not really up for heading out - it's rainy here. Enjoy your burgers!!!

    Yes, and a free grave on a local hero's hill* if you like. We have quite a collection of the flags and Presidential condolence letters in my family.
