Honor to My Grandfathers And Grand-Uncles

DangerGirl: Among the other joys in voting this year, two items, homestead exemptions for vets and spouses. Checked yes on those with more enthusiasm than the Republican straight ticket.

I should salute my Uncle Ed, who marched across the mud and mire of Europe, and was preparing for the invasion of Japan. Thanks to Nuclear Science! he lives today, to see generations of descendants raised in peace and prosperity. God bless you, Ed, and thanks for being the grandfather my kids never had.

Also honor to my grandfathers and grand-uncles who served in WWI, including Ed's father, who never fully recovered from a whiff of mustard gas.
