Veterans Day 11-11-2013 Assortment

Monday, November 11, 2013

A mom and her young son were putting away groceries, and the boy opened up the box of animal crackers they’d bought. He looked at each one carefully and then spread them out on the table, looking confused.
“What are you doing?” his mother asked.
“The box says not to eat them if the seal is broken,” the boy explained. “So I’m looking for the seal.”

It's a Married Thing

A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6."

A short time late the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"

He replied, "They had avocados."

Why is Veterans Day always celebrated on November 11th?

The holiday, established in 1938 to honor World War I veterans, was originally called Armistice Day to mark the November 11, 1918, signing of the armistice with Germany that ended the war. In 1954 the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day to honor U.S. veterans of all wars.

Have Gun–Will Travel

FROM TV: Richard Boone starred as Paladin, a gentleman gunfighter for hire in this popular CBS western, which ran for a total of 225 episodes from 1957 to 1963.

TO RADIO: A year after its TV debut, the series successfully made the backward leap to radio, and CBS Radio aired more than 100 episodes from 1958 to 1960. Original episodes were written and produced solely for radio, and John Dehner was the voice of Paladin. Have Gun—Will Travel was one of CBS’s last radio dramas.

    You know to me this Veteran's Day I'm noticing a lot of "opportunities" to give to wounded veterans. Now, please don't get me wrong here. I am not a contributor to organizations that give a share of proceeds to their cause. Only a small percentage of donations make it to the soldiers. Also they ask for a small amount to begin with them they ask for more, then you are plagued with requests from several other organizations and the beat continues. I give directly to individuals. I don't go through middle men.

    Rant ended.

    Thanks for your daily blogs. They are interesting and of course funny.
