I am a Cold War veteran, having served under Reagan. Ours was the era of the threat of Soviet espionage. It was pretty peaceful during my term of service–in fact, I don’t qualify for the American Legion, because there were no fighting battles during my term. I entered just after Granada and my inactive reserve ended just before Desert Shield (Remember that? Before Desert Storm?).

Anyway, this day is also called Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, and it’s observed in many countries. Shake the hand of a veteran today. Many of us will be wearing flag pins or at the very least, patriotic colors. So Happy Veterans Day!

I’ve been a bit over-committed lately, which is why there isn’t a lot of original content appearing here. I’ve been judging a writing contest (a lot of work!) plus I’ve been doing guest posts and having guests. The result is I am over-scheduled. My deadline for the contest judging is the 15th, but hopefully I’ll be finished with this last entry a few days before then.

Leanna Renee Hieber is going to be my guest for a Writer Wednesday!!! I happened to mention on Twitter (another reason to love Twitter) that I was prepping a Writer Wednesday post, and she sent me a private message, expressing interest! So now we are just figuring out a day and a subject! Is there anything in particular you’d like Linnea to cover?

An aside–doesn’t she look like Buttercup from The Princess Bride? Seriously!
