U S Veterans
Merci: We just want to remind you that Veterans Day in the United States is November 11. There are veterans groups out this weekend distributing poppies as a fundraiser.
Buddy: Jan helped the VFW today and will be back out for a few hours tomorrow. So if you see a woman about 630 years old --
Cyndi: Hey, Jan is not 630 years old! Humans don't live that long. 500, 550 tops.
Buddy: What do you mean she's not 630? She sure looks that old to me!
Percy: Stop interrupting. I'm trying to type.
Buddy: -- 630 years old, please dig deep in your pockets and find a spare hundred dollar bill.
Rusty: What are you doing? No one will donate anything if ....
Sam: It's psychology, Rusty, psychology. If we suggest they donate $100, which they don't have, then they won't mind donating $1 or $2, which they do have.
Cotton: Well, some of them have it. Jan says a lot of folks don't carry money any more.
Cameron: Yeah, kind of like some cats and dogs I know who never carry any money, so they can't pay their Funny Farm club dues.
Merci: This is one of those times it would be nice to have some money in the treasury. Then we could buy some Buddy Poppies of our own.
Buddy: Do you think we could write a check on Jan's bank account for some poppies?
Crystal: That's a good idea! We can buy all her poppies and surprise her.
Buddy: Let's do it! Jan loves surprises.
Merci: But I don't think she's going to like this one!

PS --- There are 28 dogs left at Carrol Crocker's. Please, if you can help in any way ....... Time is fast running out! Hope4Dogs
PPS -- Jan didn't get the house "winterized" yesterday. She got interrupted but it was an important interruption, so we'll forgive her. But if we freeze to death, it's going to be awfully hard for us to make another post.
