Today is Remembrance Day, or as it was known when I was a child, Armistice Day. I think it's also known as Veteran's Day in the USA. Today is also my birthday. I've always felt that 11/11 is a special day and when you meet others with this birthday they always seem to know what you mean. Last year an old friend had her little girl on 11/11/11. My birthday isn't quite that special.
So as I sip some lovely Champagne and eat ham and salad with my family for lunch today and cuddle my two adorable bubbas (oh and my hubby I suppose) I will think of all the Diggers past and present who serve our country to protect our way of life.
