Summer is Coming!

Summer
Days are long and hot
Sweltering in the shade
Thought I had it made
Until dad came along
He wanted me to be strong

I pulled some weeds
So the garden wouldn't go to seed
I helped around the house
Quiet as a church mouse

Until I got to the pool
Then I acted like a fool
I yelled like Tarzan
Trying to be a man

I dunked my little brother
Cause ...

Until I got to the pool
Then I acted like a fool
I yelled like Tarzan
Trying to be a man

I dunked my little brother
Cause he was a bother
i splashed water all around
Till there was no dry ground

Summertime was my time
I wouldn't trade it for a dime
Life was good back then
When summer was my friend.

They Did Their Share

On Veteran's Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it's been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn't.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;
Don't let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we can't repay.

We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let's say "thank you" to every wearer.

By Joanna Fuchs

Take a moment this weekend on Monday at 3 PM and say a silent prayer for all of our "heroes". Freedom isn't free and only by their great sacrifice are we able to enjoy the many freedoms each and every day.

Blessings to you
Pat

Thanks for dropping by my page. The weather WAS hot for a few days, now it is cooler. But summers here DO get hot!
The wars here? Since I do not live in the territories, I usually don't feel the conflict so much (although last summer's rocket attacks definately made walking outside problamatic. 2 of my sons were in the army, but right now they are outside of the country. HOWEVER it is safer here than the USA with its high crime rate....

Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful
individuals above the crowd... a little bit more.
They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more."
~A. Lou Vickery~

Have a Terrific Thursday
