Veteran's Day (observed)

Yes, that day. It's sad cuz a lot of people just figure it as another holiday. I have a lot of family members who've served in each branch of the military. I guess, just last night I was thinking about when my own parents pass. I'm lucky in a lot of ways. They're smart. They've both got wills and living wills, and have all of the funeral arrangements already made. They're gonna be cremated and stuck in a hole in the wall. Same hole. I think that's nice. I just know, I know, it's going to get me. I'm really good with death since my first dog passed. That killed me, but since then I've gotten more philisophical about it. Aaron gets hit hard, so I guess it's good to have that balance. But since both of my parents served, at each service (being the oldest) I'm gonna get handed that flag. I dread that moment, cuz I think that's what's gonna break me. That passing of the flag and everything it represents. I know it's going to be a long time (it damn well better be), but I'm still not looking forward to it. I just had to share.
