Remembrance Day In Canada Is a Wordless Wednesday

Today is the day we honour our veterans.  You know the ones that have sacrificed so we can feel safe.                                                                     

My dad was a proud officer of the Princess Pat’s Light Infantry.  He joined the army when he was thrown out of his house at the tender age of 17.  He was too young for the army but his goal was to be an officer of the Canadian Army so he lied about his age.  Obviously, folk were more trusting in that era and they let him in.  He left the army a Major.  Dad is gone but never forgotten.

We are also joining Comedy Plus for Wordless Wednesday                                                    

The poppy is a symbol of the men and women that shall not be forgotten                                                     

I like many others only thought that one was supposed to wear a poppy on November 11. Here are some poppy facts.

For one, the poppy should be worn on the left side, over the heart.

The symbol of remembrance should also not be affixed with a pin that that does not obstruct the poppy itself.

The poppy can be worn during several other occasions besides the remembrance period lasting between the last Friday in October until Nov. 11.

They can also be worn at the funerals of veterans and other memorial events or services.

As it is an individual choice, wearing a poppy during other times to honour fallen veterans can also be appropriate.

Facts supplied by the Royal Canadian Legion.                                             

Stay safe….. someone died so you could live free.

Ellen of 15 and Meowing blog and Anne of McGuffy’s Reader blog, are introducing another set of Fill-Ins for us to play with.  Thank you ladies and we’ll try to give it our best try.

1. One Thanksgiving tradition I have is….. TO RUN AROUND  THE LIVING ROOM MEWING FOR KALI TO CHASE ME AND WHEN SHE DOES, I RUN INTO THE TUNNEL AND WAIT FOR HER….THEN I CHASE HER OUTTA THE TUNNEL.  SHE FALLS FOR IT EVERYTIME. LOL

3. The best part about Thanksgiving Day is…..BEING BATHED IN A COOKED TURKEY SMELL ALL DAY.  Mmmmm….. LOVE IT!                                                                aaadeslshokcrsmzm

4. One Thanksgiving,…..I SEARCHED AND SEARCHED FOR A MOUSE OUTSIDE IN THE LANE.  I FINALLY BROUGHT ONE HOME, LIVE AND SQUIRMING BUT MOM WOULDN’T LET ME IN.  I HAD AN APPETIZER  FOR EVERYONE BUT SHE WOULD NOT LET ME IN.  I WAS FORCED TO SET IT FREE AND GO INSIDE WITHOUT A PRESENT FOR ANYONE.  I WAS SO EMBARRASSED TO SHOW UP EMPTY PAWED.

Here it is Monday and Beatrice we know you  leaving for the modelling job is a giant step up for you but we are going to miss you something terrible.  You take care now Beatrice.  Mom has packed some red willow bark for you, just in case “The Beaver” magazine decides to send you on to the Yukon today.  You’ll have some munchies.  Personally says Shoko, I think going to the head office in Winnipeg Manitoba from here is enough for today but I’m not your boss.
