Short Month

This will be short as I’m having a BG week from hell and I don’t want to write about it – how boring – plus I’m sick and tired of it. I start pumping next month (Ping), I’ve got to get better at this.

I’m glad November only has 30 days. Even though I didn’t officially sign up for NaBloPoMo, I’m still attempting to do the whole month thing.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s D-Blog Day blogs yesterday! I tried to comment where I could and loved having more than the usual comments here. I also commented on a couple of blogs where I haven’t commented before.

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day. Please make an effort to honor our veterans in some way. Even if you only stop during your busy day to say a silent thank you to them.

Tomorrow’s history lesson:
An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

  1. Yes yes yes. My dad was a Navy veteran and I remember my g'ma telling the story of having a big gathering at her house and then hearing that Pearl Harbor had been hit. There were 4 people among the relatives, Dad included, that were in the military at the time, all in the south Pacific. I think it took nearly a week for the info to get back that everyone was accounted for.

    I did not post yest – simply couldn't come up with anything to say.

  2. I think about that often – how our moms, grandmoms waited so long for news during the war. Now they have email and phones. It's wonderful to have better communications. It's hard to hear so quickly when something has gone wrong.

  3. Will do! Too bad there's not much said publicly about Veteran's Day is there? Well, we bloggers will have to change do whatever we can to help that.
