I'm posting this tonight as I'm not sure how I'll be doing tomorrow.
This is one of the pictures I'll always remember and am privileged to have the original of.
Something else I have are her DD-214's, TYPED and hand signed! The young gal at the Veterans Cemetery had never seen anything like them.
My Mother lived a long life, almost 96 years. Towards the end she felt she had lived too long. She was the last surviving member of her family in her generation.
She raised her three children mostly by herself, and all in all, did a fine job of it.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
