One of my pet peeves on Veterans Day is seeing so many people greeting each other with “Happy Veterans Day.” Veterans Day is a more solemn day to show appreciation to our servicemen and women who have devoted their lives to protecting ours. It is celebrated on what we used to call Armistice Day. Armistice Day was a day to commemorate the end of World War One. At that time it was a day of celebrating world peace. Clearly, we are far from world peace at present. These are dangerous time for all of us, and we need to support our troops more than ever. I know we have many veterans as well as active servicemen and women who read here and I offer my sincerest gratitude for your service.
So moving on, I wish I had some fun story to relate about the past week, but I do not. The bright spot in my week came yesterday when I was able to find someone to cut my yard and clean off all the limbs on my roof from the tropical storm we had weeks ago. I was thrilled to find someone new to work in the yard. As you all know I am still grieving the loss of Ladarious. 🙂 The new guy, Preston is coming back to do some “bed work” in a day or two. Insert inappropriate joke here. Preston is, um, not my type. But I do still have the paint for the stoop and the new rake I bought for Ladarious. And he seems anxious to weed my garden. Shut up. I guess I did have kind of a funny story after all.
It is winter here. We did not have fall days. It went from being too hot to leave the kitchen door open to too cold to leave the kitchen door open. I really don’t like leaving Banjo in the backyard too long without the door open because of the stalkery, creepy, gaybor next door. He of course came out to pace in his front yard while Preston was there. Because, creepy.
I’ll probably try to deal with Kroger today because I got the good coupons in the mail. But Lord knows I hate new Kroger. I will also probably watch some of the GA- Auburn game today and root my Dawgs to victory. Or at least check in on it from time to time.
Banjo is the best dog ever and really deserves some time with me today. Y’all know I sleep on crazy schedules and whatever schedule I am on, Banjo modifies his to match. If I lay down he goes to his crate until I sit up again. I don’t think God ever made a dog this cool and easy going.
I just turned on my DVR of the premiere episode of Parts Unknown, India. And it is some other dude, in New Zealand. I am displeased by this.
Some of ya’ll have been itching to talk about football, so this is a good place to do that. As always, don’t spoil TV shows or movies.
And let me know what is going on in your neck of the woods.
