Veteran's Day, 2010. The day we commemorate when the guns of World War One went silent. It was the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
No link, just the joke today.
And a wish for the swift return of our military men and women to their families in safety.
OVERHEARD AROUND THE COUNTRY AS VETERAN'S DAY APPROACHED
"I don't care how hungry you are, 'Enfilade Fire' is a military tactic, not the latest burrito down at Taco Bell!"
"I hope this hip holds up for the parade."
"Vets *should* have a special day. All those fine men and women who study for years to ensure your pets stay healthy...."
"So the mess sergeant points me at the ten bushels of peas. And that was when the shelling started."

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." (2 Corinthians 10:3-4)
