These are the medals of my Grandfather, from the Great War of 1914-1918.
He was there on the battlefields of Flanders, tending to and carrying the wounded on a mule-driven wagon.

Today is Anzac Day - Lest We Forget
Little Aussie has been here this week.
When he is older I will tell him about his Great-great-grandfather.
He is growing like a weed, this little man.
Has a keen interest in Firemen ..
and Pirates ..
Also Cafe Society and a BubbaCcino!
Today we hung out with Aussie's Uncle, the Rocket Scientist.

Just in time for Mothers Day.
Rosemary for Remembrance...
Adieu for now
