Beach Flags

It's Memorial Day!
From the Fallen
They shall grow not old, 
as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

By Laurence Binyon 
(September 1914)

We're off to St. Hyacinth's Cemetery this afternoon to put geraniums on the family plot... and Remember.
Peace.

  9. P. S. re: your comment on my blog. . . There is a HATE THAT CAT (sequel to LTDOG) and it's really 'love that cat' in spirit.
