Thank you for your service guys . My Grandfather was born in Jan 1900, so it wasn’t hard to remember his age . Passed away in 96,so that’s a full life imo .
Frank fought in both World War One and Two . My mom told me he had terrible nightmares from World War One , and would wake the kids up when he screamed in the middle of the night.
He found the Second World War to be much less close up and personal . You sure have to respect what these men and women went threw for are freedom .
Thanks again to our Veterans for the freedom that we take for granted today

Nice to see the appreciation now.

When I was in during the Viet Nam era, it wasn't like that.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Guilty consciences? U. S, Army, 1969 for me. Fortunately, I missed Viet Nam. Many joes used a term to describe it. The first part of the word was "Cluster."

Wow Rick. My grampa was born in Jan. of 1900. Needless to say, just like you, it was easy to keep track of his age. Here, he said he was too young to fight in WWI and too old for WWII. Your grampa was a great man.

Ken always says it's those who actually fought in one of the wars who are great. He served during peace time from 84-93.

Thanks , you’re grandfather sounds like a great man too Barb. That’s really a neat coincidence how close are grandfathers were born

I made one big mistake imo . When my mother passed away, the only thing my sister didn’t want from the estate was a large mirror with a wooden surround that my grandparents had hung on there wall in there living room .
When I think about it , I looked into that mirror as a mere child when I visited my grandparents, and actually remember it vividly for some reason .
It should have been on my living room wall as a reminder and family airloom , as it would be a pretty neat feeling knowing I had my reflection and that of my parents and grandparents in that very mirror many decades ago. Yup, I’m a dumbarse

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
