Thank you.

And here’s a little something from The Right Side:

“Hello,” the officer said. “Destination?”

“Canada.”

“Somewhere specific?”

“We’re just driving around.”

He looked past her at Goody. “Vaccinations up to date?”

“As far as I know.”

“As far as you know?”

“Yes.”

“Passport.”

Passport. Hers was the red, military kind. She remembered seeing it somewhere. LeAnne opened the glove box. Stuff fell out. She fished around in the glove box, found the passport, handed it to him.

“Military,” he said.

“Yes.”

“Meaning you’re traveling under orders. Orders to just drive around?”

LeAnne said nothing. Goody yawned one of her huge yawns. Did that mean she felt totally unthreatened? That was good to know.

Now the officer was examining her passport photo. “Turn to me, please.”

She turned her face to him. He saw what there was to see, hardly reacted at all. Then he looked past her again and pointed. “What’s that?”

The Bronze Star was hanging from the open glove box.

“A medal.”

“Can I see?”

LeAnne handed him the Bronze Star.

“What’s it for?”

LeAnne didn’t answer.

The agent turned the medal over and read aloud the inscription on the back. “’Heroic or Meritorious Achievement.’” He handed her the passport and medal, tapped the roof, and said, “Enjoy your visit.”

Yesterday, but today is the holiday for a lot of people. Thank a vet – PA did that yesterday, calling his dad (USN WW2, commander of a sub chaser).

This book may be of interest to vets and people who care about them.

There’s a new middle-grade series in the works. Q&A! As for C&B, we’re working on the next one now.

And it’s Veterans Day, when we always call our dad, USN WW2. Like so many others, he stepped up.

Know a vet? Say thanks. PA will be calling his dad today (commander of a sub chaser in WW2) to do just that. (And THE RIGHT SIDE, coming at the end of June, may be of special interest to vets.)
