Memorial Day

Woke up this morning trying to decide if Hiker and I would go over to our local cemetery for the Memorial Day Ceremonies and watch the WWII planes fly over. This was something that Ben and I did every single year since we moved to Santa Clarita. Last year when Ben was in the hospital it was the first year we missed. I remember mentioning to Ben that Memorial Day was coming. He asked me if I was going to go to the ceremonies without him and I told him “No. We'll go next year when you are well”. Hiker and I went over to Central Park for our morning walk. As we were walking on the trails around the park, we got to see the WWII planes fly by as they were making their turn to fly over the ceremonies at the cemetery. I have a feeling that Ben made sure I got to see them even though I did not go to the ceremonies because he knows how much we both enjoyed watching them every year. There were a lot of people in the park today and a lot of them had their dogs with them. As we were walking, Hiker would stop at each dog to say “hi”. When she does, everyone always tells me how beautiful she is and what a well behaved dog she is. They don't know how spoiled she is and how “miss-behaved” she can be at home LOL. Didn't do much the rest of the day. I did make some blueberry muffins and I watched a spooky movie called “The Fog”. Got up to around 84° on my patio today.

  1. Glad you and Hiker saw the planes. I'm sure your hubby's spirit had a hand in it. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY.
