I try to post a new “chapter” every other day, but goodness—how time flies.!! I should feel like a million bucks after sleeping all day. I think I’ve slept 18-20 hours. I saw Jerry for about an hour, and maybe 2 hours with Mama. Cousin Betty came by and took Mama to get her hair cut or I’d have seen more of her. I still can’t believe anything can knock me out like that.
With all the Memorial celebrations for all our Veterans, both living and dead, has caused me to pause and reflect on all the blessings we take for granted. All that await our military people coming home and making the adjustments to civilian life, both physically and emotional. My Grandfather was in the service, but I’ve lost everyone that could tell me much about it. My Daddy had done a lot of genealogy, but at his death, all that info went to my nephew, and his Mother has it and is working thru it all. Jerry’s dad was in WW2, and helped to liberate the Buchenwald Concentration Camp, but he never really wanted to talk about it. Couldn’t blame him, with the nightmares being so real to him. It tears me up just watching the stuff on the History Channel, or the video tapes I bought when working at a video /book/music store. I’m not sure why I just had to get them. Guess part of it is so our nephews and nieces will have documentation, and not just believe what someone will tell them.
Well, I’ve been up for about 3 hours, and it’s nap time. I will reply to your messages when I wake up. Hopefully it won’t be 18 hours again. LOL.
