Memorial Day

I want to take a moment to pause and give a heart-felt Thank You to all those men and women who gave their lives in the defense of our country. So, please take a moment to raise your glass to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, because without their bravery, all this would not be possible.

  4. Wonderful tribute! I'm sure the A10s over your house brought chills - I just love seeing those military jets. The race stopping for a tribute was pretty moving too. Now if it'd only quit stopping for rain the day would be perfect! Enjoy the rest of your day!

    BeadedTail: I love to hear them go over. Once in a while, we have the Apaches fly over in formation...really cool.
    I missed the race, because I was teaching that most dreaded of all subjects...math:(
