Thankful indeed.

Laurel and I were walking this afternoon to run an errand and saw the B-24 Liberator (Ol' 927) fly out and back from Addison Airport. Crossing the parking lot by the dollar store, she looked close enough to touch and I had to fight the urge to yell "the sound of freedom!".

After that I told her about Uncle Stir, her great-grandmother Dorothy's brother, who was a waist-gunner on a B-24 during World War II.

Thanks for serving, y'all.

Thankful too
Beautiful!

My Dad (living) served in WWII at Normandy, my late Grandparents served in WWII, my Grandma had been at Pearl Harbor.

Those who serve our country are a different, very precious, special breed and deserve our thanks and gratitude everyday! Thanks for sharing. :-)

Blessings, Love & Peace,
RH

Psssst...:::poke:::

I'm married to the LJ user voodoolimbo a.k.a willnobilis and I saw your comment about quilt making and such.

He told me we have some similarities so I clicked on your journal. The fact that you know your way around Addison and can see planes really close from the Addison Airport implies you might live near us. (I can walk to the airport from here)

Be my friend! :::laughs:::

Apparently we are only a few miles apart. Yay!

I am so excited that I think this calls for a Kermit flail:
