Memorial Day 2014

Cannot believe it was already Memorial Day today and almost summer. Seems like the year just started. Ben and I used to have a tradition on Memorial Day. We would always go over to our local cemetery for their memorial service. There would always be a squad of old war planes flying overhead. I remember years when they also flew fighter jets and even the C-17 cargo plane over, but that was back before 9/11. I remember the year when Ben was in the hospital, just a couple of weeks before he died, he asked me if I was going to go to the service on Memorial Day. I told him no, that I was going to spend the day with him and that we'd go together the next year. That never happened. I no longer go to the event. I would want to take Hiker and they do not allow dogs in the cemetery. Got up early this morning for our Monday dog walk with Jean. After the walk, had some breakfast and then did some vacuuming. Sat on the patio for awhile with Hiker. Got up to 90° here today. Watched a movie on Amazon Prime. Waste of time. It was a stupid movie.

  1. It was 88 degrees at the lake today. It's nice to honor tradition on this holiday. But starting new ones is wonderful too.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
