Hawk looking for a snack
Thursday and Friday were rainy days. That was a good thing because our neck of the woods has been very, very dry!
No luck so off he flew.
Rain means clouds and thick clouds means hit-or-miss internet for us. Generally, it's more miss than hit! I was able to visit a few of your blogs and I was even able to comment on one or two.
I'm catching up now though because the rain has moved on. Just in time too.
Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day for a Veteran's Day Parade.
G1 and G2 were asked to bring their mini-sprints and join the parade of a small town a few miles south of where we live.
The local Boy Scouts carried the flags and led the parade - well, after the Sheriff's car and a police car anyway.
This parade had a very special start. When it got to the middle of town, the parade stopped and there was a prayer for all those, past and present, who have served in the military and for their families. Then there was a moment of silence for all those who have given their lives in service to the USA. I do believe you could have heard a pin drop. That was followed by the singing of the National Anthem.
Then the parade resumed. Despite their few numbers, the school band did a wonderful job!
The boys and their cars seemed to be pretty popular with the kids.
There were several veterans who rode their motorcycles in the parade.
Old Saint Nick even made an appearance!
After the parade was over we were invited to the local VFW for lunch. Guess who was in line? George Washington! He looked pretty good for his age too. I'd left my camera in the car and my phone doesn't take very good pictures.
When I got back to the car I remembered I had my small camera in my purse. So I could have shared a picture of George with you. Rats!
