For this week's [Mostly] Wordless Wednesday, I wanted to do a Veteran's Day salute to family members who have been in the military. Plus, I love old pics. I got a kick out of my grandma's pictures from when she was in the Air Force, but I'm doing this rather last minute, and I just didn't have that much time to scan all those photos. Maybe next year I'll dedicate a day to just her.
|My Grandpa Bill, my dad's dad, WWII, Air Force|
|My Grandma Joyce, my dad's mom, WWII, Air Force|
|My Grandpa Brown, my mom's dad, WWII, Navy|
|My Uncle Tommy, my mom's brother, Vietnam, Navy|
|My Uncle Michael, my mom's brother, Vietnam, Army|
|My dad! Vietnam, Air Force|
|My brother-in-law, Greg, possibly Kuwait? Army (sadly, this is the biggest photo I have, because I took it off MySpace while he was out there. :(|
I don't have a photo of my friend Joe, but he has served our country overseas for years now, doing several tours, and he deserves to be on here, as well.
Now for links!
I only have a few for you today, as I really haven't gotten much online time this week, which is how I find the information. Sowwy! :( But I do have a few good ones for you.

Yarny is a cloud program set up for you to write your novel in. Saves as you write. It looks interesting, though I'm not sure how I feel about cloud anything right now.
