Saturday & Sunday I was on Grand-dog & house-sitting duty.
Not a bad job if you can get it!
WW, SM & the 3 Grand-hunks were off river rafting.
This pleases me, as it is the same overnight adventure WonderWoman, her Dad, my Dad (at age 80)
and I enjoyed when she was a teen 1989.
So though not there, I remember & smile.
Off the grid for a while, togetherness at it's best.
Meanwhile, "holding down the fort", as my Dad would have said ...
Laker and I were enjoying this rarely quiet house.
There were naps, I've had 3, Laker has had more.
I have finished my book, read the past 3 day newspapers,
& watched stuff on a tv that is easily more than double
all three of my archaic tvs combined, at home.
Can't help but think of the many men & women
who have served our country over the years
giving us the freedom we too often take for granted.
Like you, I have relatives who have served ...
|Uncle Bert, Marines, Uncle Kenneth, Air Force, Uncle Max, Army, Dad, Navy|
but today my mind is on young Jordan, cousin Nancy's grandson.
Her daughter Denise & Son-in-law Keith's son, serving now.
So young, away from home, parents, fiance & his siblings.
Serving across the globe. For us.
Thank you Jordan!
A smile for Monday ...
