My sister and her husband and daughter moved to Georgia around Christmas last year. Her husband is in the Air Force and his orders required him to move there. My sister and I have been texting and calling each other constantly every day.
What makes technology a wonderful thing is that now there is a thing called Skype. We can use our webcams to video call one another. I think it’s wonderful, Gram’s thinks it’s fascinating. I honestly wished that I had this sort of technology when I was in the Navy, I would’ve called home more often, just to see my family’s faces.
Now my niece can talk to my daughter, her cousin on Skype. My sister can chat with me and our Gram’s. She can also see how much my daughter has changed since she’s last seen her.
Every year one of my three youngest sisters takes me out on Veteran’s Day to eat. Sometimes I go out with my dad, who is also a US Navy veteran like me. He likes to look for the free Veteran’s Day meals that are offered on or after Veteran’s Day, which is this Sunday, 11 November.
This Monday I’ll be going out with my parents, my nephew, and my daughter to Golden Corral. They will be giving all Veteran’s and Active Duty members a free meal for their service.
