One of the mist important thing for remembrance is Veteran’s Day for all of this men and women that lost their lives for keeping us a free Nation, or those that ended up disabled due to their active service. Men and women that join the Military these days are strong minded, learn about real life and can get an education; and it takes certain strengths, will-power, energy, and knowledge to do as they do. Be sure ti tell the Service member in your family just how much you appreciate them giving their all for the U.S.
We lost so many good people in the World Wars, Korea, Viet Nam, and majorly in the Middle East; plus the smaller skirmishes along the way. The sad part is that we as a Country just don’t take care if the ones that were severely injured, it has taken individual groups, that collect monies on the tv and through the mail, to make this possible. One of the greatest of these is the building of homes that make all things accessible for those without legs to stand and reach for things.
The shops are full of Christmas already; but don’t forget ‘Thanksgiving’, this is my favorite family oriented celebration of the year, no gifts to worry about or big commercializing, just sharing a good meal and being grateful for the life we’ve been dealt, family and friends.
On the Birthday subject, Isla May de Broise, daughter of my cousin Simon, wife Amy in London, will be 9 years old November 14th. Isla was born on the day that the newly promised King Charles was turning 65 years old. So every year that the King lives, the Bow Bells will ring out in London for his Birthday celebration, and a lovely thing for young Isla to share. Chris Burns of Kellyton gets another year better on the 13th. Happy wishes to all with a Birthday this week.
Well, after a few mornings of the heater, as I write this, we have the front and back door open as it is quite a warm day. Ut is wonderful to save the power bill, but almost as changeable as the British weather was in my youth. The lawns might be good with that last haircut until the Spring, let’s hope that the County mowers will be generating one more time to cut those weeds that always grow so quickly on the roadsides.
I know that my household will not be big spending this Christmas, we just don’t have the funds, now that groceries and gas are so expensive, I wonder what is to become of us. We do have a really cute small cedar growing that I’d like to put into a pot for some Christmas lights; and I will get out of few of my favorite ornaments collected through the years, and hang a new bow on the wreaths at the front doors, and maybe even make it down to the road to do something on the gate and a bow on the mailbox, now that I have a newly numbered one with a good flag, the mail person will have to collect my outgoing mail.
Early in October I sent a lovely embroidered tea towel to my dear friend in Kentucky, it fit nicely into a flat envelop with a small piece of bubble wrap. I was wondering why I hadn’t heard about it’s receipt since my friend writes almost weekly, and the reason was that it took 30 days to reach Kentucky from Alex City. Makes one think that local Holiday cards should be mailed right now to arrive on time for the biggest seasonal event of the year.
My Ron is getting along well with his Physical Therapist, she is always on time and very professional. This week, just as she began with Ron, she got a call from a lady she had just left, the lady reported that she just stood up and walked for the first time in a year. Now, that is great news. Apparently the insurance would not cover the therapy until recently, sometimes it IS just what the Doctor ordered.
Until next week, enjoy the sunshine, the beautiful changing leaves all around, and as always keep smiling.
Remember, if you have news to share or a celebration, send me a short email to Smanorlady@gmail.com. I will be happy to share with the readers.
