Salute


Here's to all the soldiers who are fighting for our country, to all the veterans who served our country and to all those who died and will die in service to our country. We salute you all.

On the sidebar, the "wackies" have included "Taps" which has a rich history. To find out more about the origin of it and the Union General Daniel Butterfield, click on the link. It's amazing that no matter who you are or where you are, when TAPS is played, we all know and feel the emotions that it elicits. But there are also some facts that you might not know about it. So, please check out the link and do have a safe and wonderful Memorial holiday!

Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
