October is Agent Orange Awareness Month.
It killed Sarge.
Monsanto has no responsibility.
Nice. (sarcasm)

This orange sunrise is for him.  It was taken yesterday morning.  I will think of him every time I see an orange sky.  I even painted my fingernails orange.  

Today I am sad.  Usually I can push it to the back of my mind and have some fun but I need a quiet day to reflect on what our own country did to so many people that went to do what they believed was the right thing.  I'll try not to be bitter.  I might not succeed.  

I am still not getting the retirement he paid into for me for over twenty years.  It's now called the "Widow's Tax".  Another reason I am disgusted with those in office.  

Congress is getting their retirement though.  I'm so happy for them.  (not)


  1. Oh Bee, I was just thinking of Sarge this week !
    Big hugs from The Square Ones and me.

  2. Huge ((HUGS)) to you Bee. Why are you not getting the pension Sarge paid for, if you don't mind me asking? xx

  3. Extra hugs for you today, my friend.

  4. I too am disgusted with the government--I think many of us are. Why can't you get the pension, or is it in "the works"?

  5. Bee, be bitter for the day. You deserve to get upset for the way the government is screwing you out of Charlie's money for the hard work he did as a soldier. The Senate and the House of Rep always get their money don't they?
    I'm going to buy an orange shirt to wear on behalf of Charlie, my good friend and you Bee.I'm near you all the time my courageous friend.


  6. I've forgettenwhy you're not getting the retirement but it's obscene that you are not getting it.

    big hugs, dear friend. xoxo

  7. That is sooo wrong. Sending you extra hugs today, honey...

  8. Bee, Just the mention of Monsanto scares me. I have read too many bad things associated with them. Agent orange, what a horrid chemical. You have the right to be as angry as you like. I will wish you peace. xoxo,Susie

  9. You should be getting what Sarge did to take care of you. It's not right one bit. Not one bit. You and I feel the same about so many things.

    Have a blessed day honey. Think about your upcoming cruise. Tell Roche how you're feeling too. Big hugs. :)

  10. Bee, I am so grateful for Sarge's service, and for the sacrifices you made. Thank you. I hate reading about what our government is doing to you. I can't wait to vote the entire lot of them out. If I had nice nails, I'd paint them orange in honor of.

  11. Painted my toenail orange in honor of Sarge. I haven't done the blog thing much lately. Been a little depressed, plus we are moving in two weeks. Busy! Still think of you daily.
