Hi! It’s me! Lily!

It’s Friday!

And it’s Veteran’s day!!!

I’m… still not entirely sure what that means.  I mean, I know what it means, but I don’t know what it means, y’know?  I guess there are people who fought in wars, and now they’re not fighting in wars anymore.  Or something.

It seems to mean a lot to Dave though.

Every year he puts a flag up outside and just stands there and looks at it for a bit.

I don’t think he was in the military.  He’s never said he was, and the story Sabby said about how they met and got married didn’t say anything about that.  But I guess he knew people who were.

I haven’t met many veterans, that I know of.  I’ve seen videos of them with missing arms and legs and stuff.  That sucks.  Dave says “war is hell” and I guess it is.  I hope we never have to deal with that, like the people in Ukraine and Russia.  I’ve heard stories about World War 2, and they’re awful.

What a depressing topic.  But I guess that’s what today is for.

Anyway, some of the girls are over tonight, and I went over to Liz’s.  That’s where I am now.  Her family got pizza (they don’t usually like food like that but they have a treat sometimes).  We’re about to turn in.  Oh, Liz is still dating her boy!!!  They’re getting along fine!!!  She even kissed him a bit!!!

She’s blushing!  Hahaha!!!

Love you all!!! Especially the veterans!!! ❤
