Veterans Day

DH wished me a Happy Veterans Day this morning, as he was leaving for work and I was trying to sleep through the roar of purring Vanalikalikes ready for breakfast. I asked him if that wasn't an oxymoron.

It's a lump in your throat "happy". I think if I had the honor of serving my country, I would take comfort in the happiness of the people back home. At the wine shop today, I found out that the owner was a WWII veteran. He asked me the usual, "Need any help?" and when I looked up at him, he was wearing a well decorated green hat and a USMC tie. I wished him the dreaded Happy Veterans Day and thought, "My friend, you helped me before I was even born."
