Rough Science and other rough stuff

The Things and I have just finished watching Series 3 & 4 of Rough Science.
It is such a fun show! We also like History Detectives, which you can watch online.

I didn't post anything special on Veteran's Day, but not because I didn't have any thoughts on the matter, but, well... words fail me.
My husband, my brother-in-law, my father, a couple of my uncles, several of my cousins, my grandfather, and my great-grandfather are vets. Many of our close friends are also veterans.

Monday we went to Tahoma National Cemetery.
My grandparents are now interred there, in the this section.

Seeing the very young military men who performed the rifle salute, flag ceremony, and played taps, working with the quite elderly VFW volunteers who officiated was perfect. The holders of the past and the future working together in the present to honor those of their ranks who have died.

Great post. They are all our heroes.

Happy Thanksgiving, Logo. I hope you and your family are having a great holiday!

All those markers, so inevitably inadequate. Very moving indeed.
Happy Thanksgiving.
