I didn't get around to posting for Memorial Day, but, better late than never. So, here are a few photos from our parade. And, I guess there is never a wrong time to remember those who fought and died so that we could have freedom.
|They bring out the big flag for important holidays|
|Part of the fun of parades is "people watching". |
I think that lady pushing the stroller was either trying
to be patriotic, or she just came from Wal-Mart.
She might have pulled it off if she wore blue instead of black.
|The parade began with Civil War re-enactors|
giving a seven gun salute with their muskets.
|I don't know, but maybe that woman is |
supposed to be Betsy Ross.
|This man walks the entire parade reading off|
the names of our local patriots who have died
defending our freedom. Unfortunately, he is
followed by the band, who usually drowns him out.
|This is a new addition|
|A sobering sight|
|A reminder of all who make sacrifices for our freedom|
|The band. Let me just say, back in the olden days|
when I marched in the band, we did not have the
luxurey of wearing shorts and tee-shirts. Oh no.
We wore our full dress uniforms. Kids these days
have it soooooo easy!
Let me just take the opportunity to thank everyone for visiting a commenting on my last post. I appreciate your comments, and it may take me awhile to get around to commenting back to you - mostly because I'm slow and easily distracted. I could probably write an entire post on why it takes me so long...
But, in the meantime, let me say, THANK YOU!
