Happy Veteran's Day! The kids are off of school, I am making blueberry muffins and Peter is attempting to fix our furnace. Instead of the long-ish post I was thinking about commenting on how proud I am of my Dad's service in Vietnam and how saddened I by the after effects of war, I will leave you with this little conversation that Miss E and I had this morning.
Miss E: What's Veteran's Day?
Me: A day in which we celebrate our veterans. Grandpa's a veteran.
Miss E: I know, because his parents fought in the war.
Me: Well, he fought in a war too.
Miss E: Why didn't he die?
Me: Not everyone who fights in a war dies, quite a few of them come home.
Miss E: Like Obi Wan Kenobee?
Me: Ummm...yeah, kind of like that.
Happy Veteran's day to my Dad, our own personal Obi Wan Kenobee.
