Christmas Ornament Swap

I got my first Christmas present!!!
It's always nice to get mail from abroad, but especially now with all sad things happening. I've been more depressed and sad after my grandma passed away than I really thought to begin with, as have my aunt it turns out. And on top of allt hat I got sick with the flu or whatever virus it is that is pestering us around here. So as a result of all that I've been "down and out" for a couple of weeks.And then one day there was a note in my mailbox that I should fetch something too big for it from the post office. Hmmmm. And it turned out to be a wonderful parcel from abroad, all the way from America to me, something I almost had forgotten that could arrive. What joy!!
In the middle of the gray and rainy world this wonderful little man popped up from the box and told me to believe.To believe in wonders, life and people. Now I'm sure there will be at least some snow this winter.
Thank you so very much 'Screaming Mimi'
You made my day, week and month.
And thanks for Lisa for arranging this swap.

Photo Hunt - Veterans or Military

The veterans in our family have all passed away. We remember them always and are grateful for their contribution in getting us the free country that we have.
This picture is taken 2 years ago, when my son was in the army and they had kind of open house for relatives to come and see their premises. It was unfortunately a rainy and cold day. My son was serving in the transportation department and that day his job was to present to the interested visitors some of their vehicles and tell about their training.
