Memorial Day

soldiers gave their lives- enormous price for freedom Gray clouds in morning *An unofficial beginning of summer with a long weekend of BBQ's, beer and having fun, but we all should take a few moments and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day.

Grey clouds this morning here. Recognising their bravery was a good thing to do. Yes, what a price.
