Hope everyone is having a great Memorial weekend. I think this year we especially remember so many that have given their lives in military service. I remember my Uncle Archie, a WW2 veteran who earned a purple heart. He was patched up on the battlefield and had problems with that leg all his life.

He was the uncle who my mom and I went around Hungary with. He was very stoic about the pain and difficulty from his leg, too much so, so that I got to see the medical institutions of Eastern Europe first hand on that trip.

He was a brave guy.

  1. Hey, Ilona — I liked your answers. I’m especially intrigued by this whole “kifli” thing. I want one now, too. Will you be posting a recipe soon? 😉

  2. Love your new look, Ilona! What a beautiful photo of you! I shall steal a few minutes and read your birth stories and happy thoughts today!

    Great list! Ilona is now slightly less of an enigma!

    Remembering the fallen…thanks be to God for brave soldiers and may He send His Peace to their families.

  3. I am now perilously close to the familiarity breeds contempt adage…. so we will move right along. On the pic: I had the choice between two from my niece’s wedding last month… I chose the more flattering one. I am a woman after all.

    Amen to your prayer.Amen.
