Follow Friday.....


This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread.  We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back.  And now for this week's question....

Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite solider and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.

A:  In all honesty, I'd have to say my father is my hero.  He was in the Navy back in the 60's and has many colorful stories from that time.  Four years ago he had a work-related accident that's left him with some brain damage and quite a few physical impairments.  Even though he's frustrated by the changes in himself, we're all just happy he's alive.  I applaud him dealing with things as best he can and letting us laugh with him when the situation warrants.  So, here's to my Dad.

  1. We talk about heroes and heroines in fantasy novels, but it's people like your dad who are the real heroes.

    Happy Veteran's Day, and thank for stopping by my blog. Definitely following back :)

  10. Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

    As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

    In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

    Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
