November 11

I give up. My scanner won't work and I am too lazy to get the other scanner out and hook it up so there will be no pictures with this Remembrance Day post. I have a neat old photo of my moms seven brothers. Two of them served overseas. Their experience was horrible. One of my uncles had post war trauma syndrome. He told his story once and after that would not speak of it again. My dad and his father were in the Royal Canadian Air Force. They did not serve over seas. The war ended before they were called to go. I am thankful for my uncles that served yet thankful that my dad and grandfather did not have to go. It would have been wonderful if nobody ever had to fight. It would be wonderful if there was no reason for war. Our family was fortunate. We did not loose anybody to war. So many were not and are not so fortunate. My heart goes out to those families today and every day.

I keep jiggling the cord and pushing the button. The pictures sure would have been nice. Oh, give it up Chris! No pictures! Except it. Go to bed.

It's the thought that counts. We were able to read your thoughts on this important even though we couldn't see your pictures. (Hope you can get it working soon.)
