Thank You to All Who Have Served
We live in the greatest country on the planet. Why is that? It's because of the freedoms we all have because we are citizens of the United States of America. Those freedoms weren't free. Many members of our armed forces gave the ultimate sacrifice. Many others were wounded, thus changing their lives forever. I cannot say "Thank You" too many times to those who have served.
I am a 50+ year old grandfather, father & husband. I am very quiet, just ask my wife & daughters (and watch their eyes roll). I teach 3rd & 4th grade in Sunday School & work in the metal cutting field as a profession.
I have a 90 degree bend to my sense of humor, so odd thing catch my attention & make me laugh.
The title "Upon His Hind Legs" come from a phrase in the book "A Little Better Than Plumb" by Janice Holt Giles. I highly recommend this book to all couples.It refers to the normally quiet husband (like me) who when riled, can and will rise upon his hind legs and let out a roar like a lion or bear.
I began blogging at the suggestion of my oldest daughter, to chronicle my childhood stories. They can be found in my weekly column "Flashback Friday".
