Veterans Day--Things to Do to Celebrate #VeteransDay, #defendingliberty


Today is the day set aside to honor all who have served in our nation's military.

Here are a few things to do to help celebrate and to show appreciation to our veterans.


  • Take a veteran to lunch. Several restaurants offer discounts and freebies to honor American heroes. 
  • Send the name of your Veteran family, friend or stranger to Operation Gratitude and they will receive letters from strangers who want to thank them for their service.
  • Attend a Veteran's Day parade.
  • Connect with groups like Wounded Warrior Project on Facebook and Twitter to show your year-round support.

Are You Up to the Challenge? #NaNoWriMo #amwriting

I've never won the NaNoWriMo challenge.  Oh, I try every year, but someway, somehow complications occur and before I know it, the deadline has passed.

A few of the years I've been a hundred words from achieving my objective and at other times when every obstacle imaginable have presented themselves--chauffeuring my grandson to and from work, car repair, picking up those last minute grocery items from the market, and I've missed the target by a few thousand words.

The important thing about this challenge is trying. Never giving up. Persevering. Striving for that obtainable goal because it really is reachable. 50,000 words. And someday I'll be victorious. I'll proudly display my triumphant banner on this blog, my website, and social media.

November 1, the challenge begins anew. My notepad, pen, pencils and laptop are primed.  On your mark. Get ready...

Are you up to the challenge?
