Before we get to the good stuff, I have to acknowledge Veteran's Day today. Thank you to every single reader who has served or has served at home by supporting a loved one in the military. My own father served in the Army in the 1950's. He's been gone for many years now, but I have an amazing treasure he left behind.

Can you believe I never, ever saw this book when he was alive? It was actually only after my mother passed away that I found it - and I'm so glad I did!
Here's a peek! My dad's the handsome guy on the right here:
