My daughter asked me what I was going to do on Veterans Day and I told her work on the Christmas lights. She asked why I wasn’t going out to enjoy some free stuff. I told her that I preferred peace and quiet instead. The good November weather doesn’t last long in central Minnesota.
It bothers me whenever someone say “Thank you for your service.” I think “Where were you when I was in uniform?” I would much rather they thank a WW2, Korean War or Nam vet instead. I force a smile and keep my thoughts to myself.
I wonder if I can afford a trip to New Orleans next year? I’ve got a couple thingees that take a much higher priority but it would still be nice to get out of town if it’s only for a week.
Brrrrrrrrrrrr! I saw the long range weather forecast. Anything below 65*F is cold as far as I’m concerned. Except when it’s March in Minnesota. Yeh, 45*F seems almost tropical after a long and cold winter.
