Remembrance & Thankfulness

"The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war." 
- Douglas MacArthur

"We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
- Abraham Lincoln

(This pillow has been in my family since WWI in which both my grandfathers served.)

Wonderful, wonderful old pillow, with so many memories in every it!

You and I and our strays...I catch a glimpse of my lil' feral soul every once in a while, but another adult cat has come around to share goodies...Scratchy the terrorist terrier is going INSANE...I sure hope she doesn't push the door open, she's famous for that.

Have a safe holiday!
