Eleventh Hour, Eleventh Day, Eleventh Month

cj Sez:  On Wednesday this week, the U.S. respectfully observes Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor all the veterans whose heroism made and keep this country free.

   “When first celebrated as Armistice Day, the day marked the end of World War I, formally recognized on the '11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month' in 1918.

   “Today we continue to celebrate the day as Veterans Day, still recognizing the original tie with November 11. That means Veterans Day is on the same day every year—November 11—regardless of on which day of the week it falls.”  (Source: )

   "Find your best time of the day for writing and write. Don’t let anything else interfere. Afterwards it won’t matter to you that the kitchen is a mess." — Esther Freud
