Happy Veteran's Day to everyone who served our country. My husband received such a nice card yesterday from the family of Christopher's girlfriend... a Thank You card for serving our country. Hubby was in the Viet Nam war before we met.

However, I have been given firm orders that I cannot open it until Christmas. I think that is torture... pure and simple torture. Sigh... :-(
