Our Family's Greatest Generationer
|A proud Army Air Corps Pilot|
My father-in-law is standing in front of the B17 that he rode in from Dayton to Columbus,
holding a photo of his flight crew. This photo that graced the front page of The Columbus Dispatch captured a glorious moment on a gorgeous fall day.

I am so happy and thankful that my father-in-law has experienced such a wonderful year. But, his military service is only a small part of what makes him so special. The love and devotion he showed to my mother-in-law during the final years of her life ... well, there just aren't words. Tom Brokaw got it right -- the Greatest Generation indeed.
I only managed a couple of cards this week. Both were made from remnants of my Kaiser Secret Bird Society paper. Unfortunately, I struggled with a third card -- actually for a couple of nights -- but just never got it quite right. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a few more made this weekend.

News from the Homestead
Two points worth noting:
- The scrapbook pics were taken with our new digital camera and uploaded to a laptop! You have no idea what an accomplishment this is for us tech-challenged folks. Thanks to Yolanda for her vote of confidence!
- All of the photos in this post have watermarks -- another huge accomplishment! Thanks to Julie for her recommendation to use http://www.picmarkr.com/.
- The one downside of these techie accomplishments was fewer made cards... Let's hope I get lots better at all of this!
Well, this post ended up being a little longer than I had planned. Sorry about that.
Thanks for stopping by. And, with the crazy weather going on, hope everyone is okay. Be safe!
