Jimmie’s Happy Veterans Day!

“Jimmie,” said his brother Tom, as he gave the fish to his mamma, “let’s play we are sailors. We can use mamma’s tubs for boats, and fasten our flags onto them.”

“All right, Tom,” returned Jimmie, “we will play the tubs are battleships, and that we are the captains, and we can pretend to shoot big cannons at each other.”

This was great fun, and went along nicely until Jimmie got so excited that he tipped over his boat, and then there was a great squealing.
