Happy Memorial Day and thank you to all the men and women who have served and to those who are serving now. A special shout-out to our friend, Daniel, who has been in Afghanistan for a couple of months now, and to his fiance who is waiting for him back here in Maine. Prayers are going up for Daniel daily, and for all his fellow soldiers.
Our plan to attend this morning's local parade fell through. Part of it had to do with awakening around 1:00 a.m. to a spectacular thunderstorm that was shaking the house and flashing through our windows. After that, waking up in time to make it to the parade just didn't happen. So out we go now into the heat and humidity to plant flowers, set up window boxes, and put up our flag.
(And no, the heat and humidity is nothing like Texas or Florida, but we have black flies, so Maine still wins).
Have a wonderful day, and remember to thank those who have or who are serving in the military.
