Charles Albert Kydd ” I thought Ruth might like the attached photo of my great uncle, the brother of my English grandmother (the one you met). Charles Albert Kydd was born in 1896. He went missing and I’ve also attached a document relating to this which I found in amongst my gran’s papers. Unfortunately I don’t know anything else – not even what regiment he was attached to.”
Thankfully he did survive the war and lived into old age!

Veterans Day. More than a day off from school. A day in November to honor all veterans- men and women in the military who have served. And the correct spelling “the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling “ according to an article “Apostrophe Sparks Veterans Day Conundrum”. I had to look it up. WWII, on the left my father’s brother Alan Ray Hendricks who “observed his 28th bday by flying a bombing mission over Japanese-held Koror Island in a 7th AAF Liberator on which he is a gunner”.(old yellowed newspaper clipping) Received the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Who do you know who has served? Scan and email a photo of a veteran you know , along with name and service and I will post a gallery of veterans.
Suzanne sent me her father-in-law and father and that sparked the idea. rutheh (at) gmail (dot) com

The Tulip Tree out front was slow to change color this year. Liriodendron is in the Magnolia family
l’m told they grow up to sixty feet tall, which I probably won’t see, but it’s a lovely tree.
I lost my 90+ year old Sycamore in 2002. I’d gotten a second opinion that it had to be taken down. a living thing that had come to the end of its life. I filled out a request for a new tree and the city planted this one.
It’s growing straight up it seems to me. The sky was blue today and made a perfect backdrop for the changing leaves.
“Celtic Culture was founded in 2004 with the mission of bringing a wide range of style forward products from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. The company was founded by Andrew Carr who has traveled extensively in Ireland and the British Isles and has always had a love for all things Celtic. ” from their Website
Just about fifty miles from downtown Pittsburgh, you can find all things Celtic.
Celtic Culture Shop is a gorgeous gem right on East Main Street in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.
We saw sweaters, cloaks, wool caps, jewelry, crystal, greeting cards, home decor items, preserves, candies, chocolate, sweets and even Marmite.
It would be a pretty time to drive out to the Laurel Highlands and check out the Celtic treasures, do a little holiday shopping.
Beautiful Sparkling Crystal
The photos were taken in the summer on the day of the Yarn Crawl- August 2019, but just recovered this first day of November, 2019. Thanks for your patience, Andrew.
