I should have posted this on Monday, but I had other things on my list to do..... bwahahahahaha!!
But here he is in all his glory, the good 'ol red, white and blue... he kinda makes me hungry when I look at 'em. Doesnt he kinda remind you of the colonel...Colonel Sanders, you know....from KFC. I made this one for the sketch challenge on Stamp Something blog. It was a very simple sketch, I found this image online as a coloring page. The sentiment was created on the computer, can't remember the names of the fonts. You just gotta love the internet!!!
My daddy was in WWII...and I tear up whenever I see the services for all the military on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, oh and lets not forget the 4th of July. My daddy never told me any stories growing up regarding the war, he said that it wasnt for ladies to hear. My oldest brother finally told me a few not to many years ago, wheeewww. I just had to know more, so I wrote the army a letter asking for any info and the answer was that the building that held all the files had burned and there was very little info available.... wow was that a kick in the gut. I wanted to know at least where he went, stationed, what battles he fought in, etc..... They (army) did send me a ceritified copy of his honorable discharge. his tombstone reflects his rank and I was told he fought in the battle of Normandy. But that is all I know, and probably will ever know. Maybe what I don't know is like my daddy always told me, "Its not for ladies to hear."
Hope you all enjoy a look into my inquisitive nature.... Jeff says I ask too many questions and I'm nosy!!! But my momma always said that there are no dumb questions, just dumb answers!!!
Until later, patriots.....Gotta split......TFL !!!!
