Celebrating Veterans Day

If you celebrate Veterans Day, how do you celebrate? I celebrated Veterans Day by writing a poem thanking all Veteran’s and this Morning for the first time I watched my first naturalization ceremony coming live from Fox Square on Fox News. They swore in 12 new people who were becoming US Citizens. They said it was the first time they ever did a ceremony live. It was something to see. Although it did pose some questions after hearing the oath. You see the first thing you need to understand is all the people becoming US citizens today were in the service. The question I had here is how do you serve in service and you’re not a US citizen? Also, another question I had is everyone must show they know English unless exempt. Exempt??? Why would you need to be exempt knowing the English language if you’re becoming a US citizen and the US is now your loyalty? If you know please let me know. Thank You.

WHO NOMINATED ME AND MY THANKS

I was nominated by Andrea from The Perks of being Different . I thank her from the bottom of heart for this great award. I’m glad she thinks so much of my blog. What a great compliment this is especially coming from another great blogger.

ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME

  1. Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters. 
  2.  Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
  3. Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
  4. What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
  5. Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
  6. What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
  • Cat >”<
  • Graduation Girl 👩‍🎓
  • Santa Clause 🎅
