I have the day off so I will be catching up on rest but I will be thinking of my military coworkers who will be at work today and I will definitely be thinking of my brothers and sisters in arms that are currently in harms way in Iraq and Afghanistan and those deployed in other parts of the world.

Just wanted to pop in and say “Thank you!” to all of our military members for their service. We appreciate all you do and have done!

I took my husband out to lunch and wished him happy veteran’s day – he’s a disabled vet and doesn’t get out much. I also got him new “skies” for his walker.

Thanking my grandfather, who fought in WWI under Col. George S. Patton.

November 11 is Armistice Day. That’s when they stopped shooting at each other. WWI ended with the Treaty of Versailles, signed on June 28, 1919. Exactly 30 years before I was born.

Had breakfast with a vet buddy.

Just heard a roar outside a few minutes ago, rushed out in time to see a flight of F-16s go over in the Missing Man formation. Wow.

@steelmarket. Very cool. Very cool.

Working, eating, sleeping, talking… to someone, using the “facilities,” performing various self-services, and letting my mind wonder a bit.

In short- no.
