I can’t believe it is Remembrance Day already! This month has gone by so fast. I’ve been in and out of sorts, getting the flu and a cold and still just generally feeling crappy. Pam has avoided getting sick, I’m not sure how!
With this down time, I’ve been puttering around getting the Christmas decorations repaired and ready to go. Lots of blown lights, broken reindeer, damaged snowmen lol! If the rain every breaks, I’ll start putting some lights out.
This year, I’ve done something for Remembrance Day that I don’t usually do. In fact, this is the first time. The cross on the right has the first two lines of In Flanders Fields.
I wanted the deer to have a scarf made from the cloth of the Black Watch, which was the regiment my grandfather volunteered into during the Second World War. But I couldn’t find one. Anyway, it’s the thought that counts this time of year, right?
So let’s take a moment to give our thanks to our veterans, past and current who have put their lives on the line so we can be free. Wear your poppy proudly. Thanks Dad. Thanks Grandpa.
