  1. I didn't see your link at 6WS yet, catching it on my blog roll! I went to visit my daddy, and my girlfriend's parents yesterday at our Fort Snelling National Cemetery. It's a lovely place.

    1. Thanks, Karen. I linked and it was there, but when I went back it was gone. I added it again, and I think it is okay now.

  2. This is a wonderful and special place. May visit here this weekend for the changing of the guard ceremony, it is always such a moving event and one never tires of being witness to it. My father-in-law lays to rest here; along with two friends from the VietNam war, alongside too many others ... too many who have fallen, fallen for us.

    1. Forgetting is a dangerous thing, as that is when history repeats.

  5. Nice post and 6W's, Mrs. Mac.
    The guard changing is quite impressive and can give you goose bumps.

  6. The death toll, both enlisted and civilian, is unacceptable. We need to find another of living together.

    1. I agree with you, Ron. But I still thank our military for their service. All of my freedoms are paid for by their unselfish service.

  9. Amen, too. Stella is a pretty dog and really like the name. I suspect Stella and Fergus would get along just fine. Fergus will be a year old on 6/26. He was born the day after Willie, my black lab mix, crossed the rainbow bridge. He was 13 and had been suffering from hip problems for a long time. I'm glad to have Fergus, but he sure is a busy boy! :)

    1. Thank you, Roan. I think Stella would love Fergus. She loves other dogs and wants to play with ones she meets. She is so reserved and calm, though.

  10. I have to agree, that was so well said. We like that a lot. Have a great week end.

  11. I would hate my son to be in the military. I might never sleep again.

    1. I understand. It is a scary world, and war is a scary reality.

  12. I am praying that there will be no war in the future, and that people will not kill one another....

  13. I wish them safety and a ticket home. This has lasted far too long.

    I honor each who have served, are serving and will serve.

    Thank you for your tribute.

    Hugs,

  17. When I was a senior in high school we took a trip to Washington DC and got to see the changing of the guard at the Tome of the Unknown Solider. It was one of those moments I will never forget.

    The kittens are my first two fosters of the year. I usually take the ones that have some sort of problem, like URI, and need medications or maybe some special attention. They will be going back to the shelter next month to be spayed and put on the adopt floor. These two will have new homes very quickly.

  18. I have been honored to watch the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier many times over the years. It never fails to move me.
