Thank you Veterans!

Today is Veteran's Day. 

I want to say thank you to the veteran's in my family.

My Grandpa ~ George Everett Lockwood, US Navy

My Dad ~ Theodore Arthur Nelson, US Navy

Ron's Dad ~ Pete I. Workentin, US Army

My husband ~ Ronald James Workentin

My son ~ Ronald James (Jamie) Workentin, JR

I want to say thank you to all the veterans I know.  Too many too count.  

Thank you all for the service you gave to our country.  For the freedoms you fought for.

Thank you for serving!


  1. Be proud of your family. Each veteran deserves our gratitude.

  2. Nice post, Ali. Thank you to your family members for their service to our country.

  3. Your family is like mine, Thanks to them all, My Grandfather, ever the railroader,used to say, "nobody rides for free, everything we have in this country and take for granted was paid for in blood".What a wise man he was.Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

  4. Hi Ali,
    Thanks for the comments on our blog! You asked about the Thanksgiving blinkie button - I got it from the cutest blog on the block site. I went to their buttons and then typed in Thanksgiving. Hope you find them!

  5. Hi Ali,
    I didn't have an email to contact you back so I'm leaving you a note here. I'm sure I could come up with a nicer "alert" bracelet for you. I'd design it like a watch except I could use your "alert" piece instead of the watch face. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss it further.
