Veterans Day tribute plus GRAND Social No. 78 link party

Welcome back, my friends. For those of you who stopped by on Saturday, I apologize for there being no new post. So happens that Squarespace, my host, had technical difficulties Friday afternoon on into the early hours of Saturday, and I was already engrossed in Bloggy Boot Camp sessions by then.

Thankfully things are fine here now, just in time for this moving Veterans Day tribute produced by the husband of my bloggy friend Sandra Sallin. Sandra was kind enough to grant me permission to share her husband's video, When I Come Home, with you.

When I Come Home from DGA 1966 on Vimeo.

As Sandra asked on her own blog, I'd love for you to honor the military members on your heart today in the comments below. Or feel free to click on over to Sandra's blog, Apart from my Art, to share your thoughts directly with her.

In addition to Veterans Day, today is the GRAND Social No. 78 link party for grandparent bloggers. Thank you for linking and reading!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:


<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, comment, even if just a "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit the links of other bloggers and do the same.
