Veterans Day 2022

Friday (November 11th) is Veterans Day. I received this from one of my newly found cousins and thought it worth passing along. Embarrassingly I, at 76 years, did not know this. I can't imagine many others do either. So here goes. 

I spend a few minutes almost every day looking at YouTube. 

One of the videos I always look at is the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. If you've never watched this, you are missing an awe inspiring occurrence that happens every hour on the hour when the cemetery is open to the public. I've never tired of watching these videos. 

It used to be every hour on the hour from October 1 thru March 30 and every half hour from April 1 thru September 30. Covid here, like other places, has made changes. 

My son was fortunate to have been at Arlington National Cemetery some years ago and has watched this in person. 

If you've never watched this, take 10 minutes or so and watch one. You won't be disappointed. 

Last thing today. I went to the doctor yesterday, he removed the staples from my stomach and the drain tube. Now all I have is to get the stent removed sometime after the 19th of December and I'm good to go. Based on there being no pain in my back, the doctor believes the infection in my spine to be gone. Good news there. 

So, a little recuperation time and a little time to build up my strength and I'm back at the lakes. 

Stay tuned.
