My friend Holly and her children, Nathan and Caryn were there along with Tracie's good friend Kim and her son who is 5 years old , Jacob.. to help celebrate Ben's birthday early.
Yesterday was Veterans Day ~ at the HyVee Grocery Store in Marion . Holly and I dropped off Nathan because his boy scout troop was gong to serve breakfast to all the veterans.. HyVee fixed it and the boys served it to them.. Nathan said there were over 700 men and women they served.. While we were there I shook hands with as many of the veterans that I could ~ Thanked them and told them how brave I thought they were ~ and without them we as Americans would not be free.. Some of the men had tears and were so thankful.. I love to see veterans wherever I go so I can thank them and shake their hands. We as Americans should do this daily~! One man told me he fought in World War 1 and he flew a plane with the fighting tigers.. If you get a chance google fighting tigers and see the awesome airplane he flew. He told me his story and was crying while telling it, because his best buddy was hit and his plane went down. He said he knows he died.. All these men have such great stories to tell and we need to take time to listen and then give them a big Thank You~!
Have a great and tiggeriffic day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)
