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.

Kali’s Gotcha Day Coming Up

 

Shoko, Kali’s Gotcha Day is quickly approaching.  Oh, it’s not until next month Mom.  It’s on Friday Shoko.  Well, it really is Sunday but Sunday is Mother’s Day so we’ll celebrate it Friday.  Seriously??

I'm not ready though!!

I’m not ready though!!

Do you think she’d like a picture of me, mom.  Would you like a picture of Kali for your Gotcha Day Shoks?  Not really.  What can I get her?  I haven’t saved any treats and the catnip plant hasn’t got any new nip yet…just a few sprouts.  Well, I’m going shopping today perhaps I’ll see something.  Mom don’t you have anything for her?  I ordered her a “Furminator,” from Amazon but no sign of it yet.  I hope we get it before her Gotcha Day.  I plan on making a special meal and a cake for her.  Catnip of course inside the cake…you betcha’.  Kali will be 13…about 68 human years.  WOW!….she’s getting on but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her!  She carries her age well.  She is alert as ever.  Just what the world needs more “Lerts.”

How bout you Beatrice?  You got anything for Kali’s Gotcha Day?  Oh no…this is a special occasion for Kali and I have forgotten….wait, Shoko I never heard of a Gotcha Day…what is it?  That’s the day that Kali adopted mom and moved in with her and dad.  You celebrate that?  Of course…Kali decided to come and help mom furever.  Kali has been here for 13 years.  Kali has been hanging around…I mean lived here for quite awhile, eh Shoko. Yep, she is the oldest of all of us…except dad…he is REALLY old.

 

Something from the heart

Something from the heart

I know Kali would love something that means a lot to us.  For example, the egg blanket for a month from you cause you love it and hate to part with it Shoko.  That’s gonna be tough Beatrice….I don’t know if I can be happy without it but Kali is one great sister….I’ll think about it.  How bout you?  It will be a surprise for you too Shoko…you’ll have to wait till Friday.

 

We must make her feel special on her day

We must make her feel special on her day
