"There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well." --Walter Reuther
Being that tomorrow is Memorial Day, I am thinking of my grandfather, William Welby McCune 1903-1986. When I was a kid I remember going to his home and listening to his stories. Oh, what a great storyteller he was! Oh, how I wish I would have listened better and even written down the stories. He was a Captain for the US Army during World War II and served from 1942-1945. He was so honored to have served our nation. I miss him. Here he is pictured with my grandmother on their honeymoon in 1927. Don't you think he could have been a movie star? So handsome!
Here's a patriotic quilt I did years ago, when I was a handquilter. So long ago...looks like an antique now, I think.
Have a nice Memorial weekend!
