Memorial Day

 The patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree -  Thomas Campbell
All we have of freedom, all we use or know, this our fathers bought for us long and long ago - Rudyard Kipling

Happy Memorial Day.  As we celebrate and grill, swim, and hang out - let's remember........

    Enjoy your day Joanne.

  7. Hi Joanne - we definitely need to remember and your Memorial Day comes at a time that we are building up to summer fun - so it's good to remember now and for us to commemorate our lost souls in November on Remembrance Day. We are so fortunate to be free ... Cheers Hilary
