Post 2101: tail tale…

“Must resist temptation!” I tell myself. But I quickly…

…stroke the tail!

“The lion sleeps tonight”. I hope!

Mmmm! Soft!

I’ve gone a bit too far…

…but my hand is safe! Heck, Dougy likes his tail stroked. It wasn’t that scary to do after all.

The Quilt of Valor organization for the Panhandle of Nebraska honored me with a beautifully made (and very comfy!) quilt at Friday’s Class of ’66 monthly get together at the Korner Grill. I was totally caught off guard (as you may note from ny slightly bemused or confused smilish expression in the photo above. Thanks to fellow classmate Dave Deitz for the photo.)

I feel those who served in war zones are more deserving of this sort of thing, and am a bit uncomfortable receiving this considering my three years of service were mostly in Germany in a very comfortable job as a motion picture photographer.

That said, those who chose to show me this consideration have my thanks, but I hope future quilts can go to fellow veterans who endured time in war zones, perhaps were wounded emotionally or physically, and, as I understand the Quilt of Valor organization’s intent, are the men and women the organization wants fellow Americans to recognize for their sacrifice.
