Porte Musings:

A special day to remember the contributions of Aboriginals (Indians) who left their homes in search of adventure to serve in the war. They had to give up their Indian Status and leave their families to perhaps never come back. Today is Aboriginal Veterans Day. Thank you for your service. Below are 2 of my husband’s uncles that enlisted: Chester Golder and Earl Halpin. Brothers seeking adventure and fame. Both lucky enough to return home and raise families.

On the lighter side, today is also Abet and Aid Punsters Day. So dust off your favorite pun and share it: The most remarkable invention of the 21st century was the dry erase board. LOL

If you’re seeking adventure close to home, today is cook Something Bold Day. Find a new recipe and experiment with some new spices or flavours.

If I have made an appointment with you,
I owe you punctuality,
I have no right to throw away your time,
if I do my own.

~ Richard Cecil (English – Clergyman / November 8, 1748 – August 15, 1810)
