Give that veteran a hug from me and my family! He did a wonderful thing helping us keep our freedom!He can still fit in his uniform pants! That is amazing, too!

Love your long title. You're really struggling with the "wordless" part, huh?

I love the picture.

Great picture.

This morning I was going to do a Veteran's Day post but this evening I forgot....

Did you bake and bring him that pie & balloon, Jane? I love this SPT. So sad that I didn't even think of a veteran. And I'm dying at the long title that helps keep the actual post wordless. Ha!

Oh, cute. I'm sure that many an older man wishes he could still fit into the pants he wore as a young man!

Loving your loooong title. Heee. And Michelle's comment. My grandpa was out doing all these veteran things so wasn't available to take a picture with me! I should still do it though :)
