Another reason for wanting peace

This is The Aunt's great granddaughter .. her name is Alex and she's going to be 4 in March.

This past Thanksgiving when she and her parents visited we went to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons (or as Alex called them BIG LOONS) being inflated.  

We were allowed to get up close and personal because her daddy showed the nice policeman his Air Force ID ... 

Her daddy, an Air Force pilot, just returned from deployment to 'the Middle East'  .. thankfully,  safe and sound.

If, in addition to these pix of a cute kid and her brave dad, you need a reason to want this country to get out of the Middle East .. check out this new post Dianne wrote ... again, you'll thank me later
