Honouring my Favorite Veteran

Keeping this blog up while I'm visiting my mother in the States for her 97th birthday has been a challenge due to limited internet access.  So please bear with my sporadic posts this week.

Today is a special day.  My mother, a WWII vet, was born on this day in 1915.  Today, this blog is set aside to honour her.  No more words.  Just pictures.

(She's got a ways to go to "catch up", eh?)

Happy 4th of July to all my readers wherever you are.
