Where are we today ?
In Canada it is Remembrance day in the USA it is Memorial/Veterans Day. No matter what it is a day that we thank and remember all of our war veterans for fighting and giving us the freedom we have in our countries.
Always brings to mind our Grandfather George Shepherd Yates (my namesake) who was over seas in WW1. He did tell me a few stories about his time there way back we I was very young. He was in the reserves for a while in WW11 but our father was too young at the time to go overseas.

First thing this morning I took a drive to Robertsdale for a few grocery items that we needed. Passed by some cotton fields and for the first time I saw the machines that harvest these crops.

While enjoying this great day what did we have? But a friendly dog came wandering right over to Suzie. She got another doggie fix! It was a runaway, so we put a leash on her and Suzie checked with security. She was a runaway from across the river. Got off her lease and was exploring, something dogs like to do. The owners showed up and thanked Suzie for returning her.
Then time for an early quick supper. Tonight couple turkey burgers, grilled pepper and tasty salad.

Thanks again for stopping in for a peak, hope you thanked some Veterans or remembered some past war heroes and family members that fought for our freedom.
