John E. Hilliard Troop Transport 194 Thank you JoyceThis was a project I started and it is incomplete.  I am hoping to receive more photographs of Veterans you know and love to add to the gallery.
Orville Lee,who served in France during WWII. Orv is the heart and soul of our weekly retired group we call CAB (Coffee and Bagels). I hear he has beaten his sons climbing a rock wall recently.

From Anne Hamilton- UK-

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.

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 add to the post a gallery of veterans.

Suzanne sent me her father-in-law and father and that sparked the idea.  rutheh (at) gmail (dot) com

WHAT I SAW ON MY SON’S BOOKSHELF IN HIS OFFICE

First Communion Weekend in my son Mark’s home office I saw his old Baby Jake from 1976.

I believed little boys should have a doll to love and care for when they were growing up. Preparing for fatherhood.

Now he has his own family of four, but it touched me when I saw his old doll Jake on the bookshelf. Jake has a soft body that has been recovered and filled with fluff, his rubbery arms surgically reattached by me.

You might have seen Mark’s 38th birthday post from Monday.

There is something about a toy or a doll with a face.

One that’s been well loved.

If you want to see a doll well loved, his wife Erika’s childhood doll (now named Baby Doll) adopted by their daughter Anna- really illustrates LOVE!

Donna’s Grandmother Anna b. 1884 Crocheted a Doll’s Dress and Donna Crocheted a July 4th Doll

Today after school I went to visit my friend Donna.  She had commented that she had a doll collection when she saw the post of Barbara’s dolls last week.  I asked her if I could come over and photograph her collection.

Here’s a painting of her Grandmother – Anna Kugler, born in Germany est. 1884 according to the 1940 census I was able to find. The artist is Donna’s Uncle Francis, Anna’s son.  There are two more paintings he painted.  The snowy back yard with the bird feeder is Donna’s parents backyard.
