Photo Hunt ~ Veterans Day

We often take for granted the very things
that most deserve our gratitude.

-Cynthia Ozick-
In honor of Veterans Day
this is our Granddaddy-bean in 1942.

He served in France. We wonder if any of the men he
served with are still here. He is last on the right, next
to the visitor, The Phillip Morris man. Mom wishes he
had never started with those cigarettes, as they helped
take his life with emphysema and lung cancer in 1999.
Many of us Bunch knew him, even Bob and Patrick! He and
Mom looked at different goat farms to find just
the right goats for us. Mom misses him a very much.
We honor all our military and hold them in our
hearts and prayers.
