Remembrance Day and Veteran's Day

It is a quiet day here and it is Remembrance Day.  In the U.S. this day is known as Veteran's Day.
This is a day to honour our veterans, and in Canada also those who have given their lives to protect our country.
Our humans went to a special outdoor service, always held on November 11th at the 11th hour of the day.
Our country's flag and our provincial flag during this service.
Poppies like this one bloomed in battlefields of Flanders in World War I, and help us to remember the sacrifice of those killed in battle.
Today is also a beautiful fall day and I want to show all of you this lovely and colorful display of fall foliage!
We hope these fall colors hold for a while yet for us to enjoy!!

We did lots of Remembering of the Veterans today too. We purred for them.
It is getting harder to find pretty leaves. Most of them are on the ground. We hope it stays nice for a while too.
We don't like the cold!!

We are purring for all the Veterans,
and all they have done for us.
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

I thank the veterans of all our countries for keeping us safe. My Beans always observe the silence at 11am.
The Fall colours are beautiful.
