Golden Rule

As I am sure you have figured out by now, PiePie and Honey don't do things the "normal" way. Yes, go ahead and snort, call me Captain Obvious, what have you....but, just in case we have a new reader, they need to know this. We went to the mountains to get married, but we decided to come home and do it for free rather than pay rent-a-minister $100 or more to do it. Sooooo....we had our honeymoon, if you will, before our wedding...I use "wedding" here in loose terms. It literally took us longer to walk across the street and into the courthouse than it did to say, "I do,"....and we never said, "I do,"....because it ended up being, "I will," there you have it...that wasn't "normal" either. Sorta fits us, though, so I'll take it. :)

Anywho....we were in the mountains. You got that part, right? And in the mountains, one has to shop all the quaint little stores and boutiques, right? And in one of those little places, I ran across an el-cheapo bracelet that was all of a buck, I think, and I *HAD* to have it. This is what it says: As iron sharpens iron, so man sharpens another. Pretty powerful words, aren't they? This reminded me of the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And simply stated, that is my Golden Rule...only...yeah....simpler. "Be nice."

So, on this Veterans Day, I will encourage you to be nice to a Veteran. Pick up the phone and call them. Tell them thank you (another very important rule) for all that they have done for you and your family, for your country, and for your freedom. Know more than one? Call them all. Know someone in the military now? Tell them thank you, too. You can never say thank you too much, you know.

Thank you for reading this post, dear reader. :)

Happy Thursday, all!

PS...that photo up there was taken by yours truly whilst shopping on the afore-mentioned day. Wow, who knew I could post two photos in a row that I knew where they came from? Not I!
