Today was gorgeous. Ok, except for the extreme heat, but it didn't last - already the thermometer is down to 82*. Yep, it was a hot one today. After church and lunch at the local feeding trough, we came home and changed clothes. The county was having a Memorial Day tribute at 2pm and we barely made it on time. There was quite a crowd and I was pleased to see the attendance growing each year. I'm so glad to see so many there to honor our fallen soldiers. Several people sang patriotic songs, most I'd never heard before but beautiful words. I think today they held the talks short so that the people wouldn't be fainting in the heat. The oldest soldier there was 99 years old. How's that for longevity! He even had a suit on! He must have been hot but didn't look it. Looked cool as a cucumber. Many had died since last year and each name was read aloud to honor each one for their service.
