Remembrance Day


Dane and I went to the Jericho Memorial Day parade.  Veterans in uniform marched and the high school band played.  There was a motorcycle and a couple of miniature horses pulling carts, the town boy scout troop and a little league baseball team.

Best part of the parade?  "Candy!"-- thrown to the kids lining the route.  And the fact that the rain held off until it was over.

However you choose to honor the day, remembering those who served their country or welcoming summer, stay safe.

I love small-town parades. Ours used to be much as you described, but as our resort town grew, so did the trappings of the parade. There is still candy though. I stayed home this Memorial Day - it has threatened bad weather from early morning and is just now starting to rain.

Small town parades are the best. I miss them.
It's a quiet day at home for us, getting some jobs done in the yard.

Sorry to say we live too far from where the Memorial Day parade would be held. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it.

The best part was spending time with your sweet grandson.

Glad you had a nice Memorial Day, Olga. We did go over to our son's for a bar-b-que, but we were under a severe weather and tornado watch, so we didn't stay long... too much flash flooding... don't want to be caught unexpectedly.

Glad you had a good day! We dodged the weather but had a pizza party at my daughter's house since it was too rainy to bar-b-que!

I don't go to our little parades anymore, but I remember how much our kids enjoyed them.

I have thought a lot about parades recently. They still have them in the small town I grew up in but nothing like that in the suburbs of LA. I miss it.
