Veterans' Day

I realize that Veterans' Day was yesterday but many people are on holiday today so it is an extension of Veterans' Day.  We celebrated yesterday at an Irish Pub where a benefit for Wounded Warriors was takiing place.  My cousin's band was there and the place was packed.  We arrived at 7:00 or so, had dinner and sat through the music.  Dancing was taking place but the dance floor was mobbed and most of the dancers had been there since way before 7:00 it seemed.  We sat in our seats and clapped and sang and tapped our feet.  We waited until the band took a break, my cousin came over and spent a bit of time with us and we said our farewells and left by 9:30 or so.  It was a good way to honor the veterans.  Quite a bit of money was raised at the door and raffle tickets as well as prizes being auctioned off.  Hope you were able or are able to honor the veterans too.

God bless our veterans and God bless America!
