Memorial Day 2010

This song, "Memorial Day" was written by Tony Mullins to honor America's fallen heroes on Memorial Day.  It's sung by Cary Rutledge.  Tony sent us a link to a new version of the video filmed at Deerlake, Montana, but, although the scenery is beautiful, the most important part of the video is missing -- those we are paying tribute to. So we are going to use the old video, the one that includes them.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

For the first time in eight or so years, Jan was unable to help the Veterans of Foreign Wars distribute Buddy Poppies on Friday and Saturday.  She says she's tired of being tired and sick!  So if you'll excuse us, we're going to go distribute lots and lots of fur around the house to remind her she's not useless.  And maybe we'd better leave the dustmop where she'll trip over it since she's probably forgotten where she put it.  It's hard when your human gets old and starts leaving her memory in odd places.  Sigh. We hate to think what she'd do without us.
