The other nice part of going back to Wisconsin was that I got to see my family. I only had a few days so my only plan was to drive to Tomah after class on Thursday night and get back to the Madison airport Sunday afternoon to fly back home. No specific plans. Dane took Friday off so he could spend time with me which was nice. We decided to go to his mother-in-law's farm to take a walk around the property. I was hoping I would see a deer but no such luck. Saw plenty of deer trails, tracks and places where deer had bedded down in the fields but no actual deer sightings. And I like to drive out on the country roads around Tomah--see the farms, cows, fall foliage, etc. Stopped at Oak Grove Cemetery to stop by my mom and grandparents' graves. And the Greenfield and LaGrange cemeteries to visit a lot of family graves. Came across my Civil War veteran relatives graves and thought I would include pictures of them here as part of my Veterans Day tribute.
Fredrick Heser was ill the whole two months that he was in the Army.
I was nice to get home for awhile. I leave to go back to Madison on Monday. Dad and Shirley will be coming down to spend some time with me until it is time to go to my class Tuesday afternoon.
