Memorial Day Remembrance



Though time goes by some things are always remembered....It was a long time ago and I still remember the turbulent time when Vietnam was the focal point of a generation...as I mentioned last year, Gerald Bourdeau was the first person I knew who was killed in Vietnam in November, 1966, he was twenty....

Thanks Coreen for putting up a Memorial Day rememberance. I had a feeling you would.

I went back & found some more pics I took last year at this time...

Funny how there are certain things one never
forgets...

A friend who's husband is in the Army, stationed in N.C. & thankfully now home, posted this yesterday....

"Remembering on this Memorial Day. All gave some, some gave all. Freedom isn't free."

For some reason, I was able to post this, yet
still can not comment through goggle...

Today has started with a bang...lots of thunder & rain, but it seems the worst has
passed us by now...

I saw that weather this morning but it looked like it wouldn't last long.

Almost forgot...last night there was a 'Memorial Day Concert' in DC...& Pia Toscano
sang...I only saw the very end, it was on PBS channels, she was singing something not sure if this is the title 'I will stand by you'....

This am on a local NY talk show, they showed
her singing the 'star spangled banner' at the
same show...

She surely was the best of AI group...so no
accounting for the 'voters' choices....

She's been discovered like the rest of the ones who were voted off. They'll be OK. Now it's just up to them what they will be able to accomplish.

Thanks Coreen for a great Memorial Day post. I like the last - Freedom is not Free.

Glad to hear that Pia is doing well.

Carol, Not much AC anywhere here. There is in the dining hall. Most of our meeting rooms do not have AC. I slept well as evenings and nights are cool.

The really nice surprise is that technology works so well here.

I fixing to put up a post of my Memorial Day. And anyone else who wants to then put up their Memorial Day is welcome. Just because we put up a new post does not take down the previous post. It's still there.
