Memorial Day

In case you missed it, you can find my snarky Memorial Day post over at Craftastrophe.  Here, however, I’m going to skip the snark today and share a photo of one of my favorite veterans of all time, my grandpa.

Grandpa Lonon

Thanks Grandpa (and Mom, and Dad, and Uncle Johnny, and cousin Aaron, and…) for your military service.

While we’re at it, thanks to whoever decided sailors should wear those adorable white outfits – but that’s a post for another day.

Happy Memorial Day.

  2. I love old pictures. Why do they always make modern pictures seem so plain and without gravitas? Tell me that would you?
    Anyway, what a nice memorial day post. I celebrated mine in a bit of a Disney detox but it was still decent. Then I got the icing on my cake when I visited your latest Craftastrophe find. Are the worlds creative juices overflowing or what?
