Nice collage. My veterans day post will pop in at midnight.

Ralph said...

Thanks for the Veteran's Day collage. So many, especially those who are younger, don't have a feel for November 11. We will be going to a remembrance on a small town green tomorrow. Alas so many of the WWII vets are passing away. It is still nice to see these guys still around.

Just the thought of trying to find Waldo in there makes me dizzy!

Very nice collection of images and memories for this week's post.

I used to enjoy the Waldo thing when I bought them for the kids, but in the UK they were Where's Wally.
It is good to remember.

B. Roan said...

This is a very nice tribute to our Veterans. The thought for the day is appropriate as well. Where is Waldo? BJ

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Mom remembers Where's Waldo! Wonderful collection of Veterans posters to mark the day, storyteller! Congratulations on your 401st post milestone! That's a respectable amount of reflections and ruminations!

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh....The kids and I used to sit down and peruse this book for hours every so often. We loved it. We never tired of it either.

My HoT is posted, all about Veteran's Day and the last one ---one sweetheart I lost to the Viet Nam War. Come by, won't you? Happy Tuesday to you.

Karen said...

I always loved searching for Waldo. I wonder if they still make those books.

Nice post - I agree that many people don't have a sense about the gratitude through which this holiday was created.

Mary said...

I remember Waldo. The boys loved searching for him in those pictures and Brandon could find him in a flash.

A lovely tribute to Veteran's Day.

I left a comment on your 401st post as well.

Blessings,

A lovely collage. I LOVED Where's Waldo :) I remember looking for him in the publications at my dentist's office :)

Would you believe that Wisconsin has a town named Waldo? I always giggle when going through, thinking of the Where's Waldo books. :)

What a great HoT! thanks for stopping by to see me.

I really liked the Veterans Day poster collage.

My kids used to love Where's Waldo.

Betty said...

Nice photos in honor of all the Veterans who served our country and helped to keep it free.

I posted a picture on my WW today in honor of Veterans Day. I was gone all day yesterday and obviously didn't get around to posting.

I'm going to try today to pick up my awards that you have passed along to your readers. Thank you in advance. I just love visiting your interesting blog.

Loved your tribute! I have always loved "where's waldo", but my novel has me boggled at the moment!
