    Yesterday, of course, was Veterans Day in the U.S. The young lady across the street has traditionally made for me a Veterans Day card. Below is the card she delivered yesterday. The drawings are excellent for one her age (9 years), and my likeness on the inside is spot on, right down to the absence of my nose and hands (the latter perhaps accounted for by the length of the uniform sleeves). She is a great friend to my wife and me. We have known her since she was knee-high to a grasshopper. The granddaughter we don't yet have.

    You look much younger than I had thought, Steven.
    But perhaps the 6 stars and 5 stripes on the flag tell a more accurate story? :D
