[QUOTE=dixie;1096935]I think you’re pretty awesome too Veronica, always helpful and kind, what lovely qualities. And Harry, huge respect to you, you deserve the pin.[/QUOTE]
Aw shucks Dixie thanks. Sometimes it’s a blessing and a curse, but I wouldn’t change who I am for the world. Some people tell me I’m too nice and that’s okay, I would rather be too nice than be a b i you know what!

dac, I have a real fondness for the military. I may not always agree with war (not trying to start anything political here honest) but I have the utmost respect for the men and women who go out and represent and serve our country and go out and defend in a way that I am not physically able to do.
Both my grandfathers served in WWII and I was given the honor of their dog tags. I proudly carry them on my keys and cherish them to pieces.
Every Veteran’s Day I go to our local cemetery that has a huge ceremony and support all those that are still with us and celebrating and those that have passed on. This year I was fortunate enough to visit Arlington National Cemetery on the day after Veteran’s Day, it was beautiful. I’ve been another time and it’s really quite a beautiful place to go. I have plenty of photos if anyone is interested in seeing them I would be happy to post them.
Okay thanks for letting me ramble on.
