Memorial Day

Memorial Day—for years I worked jobs that required me to be at work on many holidays, so I figured they felt a bit different to me than to the partiers and family reunion types, like those at this county park.

Had an interesting conversation with my favorite vet, the Botanist (trying out nicknames a la Anne and Mouse), and got a recitation of the list of bases where he was stationed 1943 to 1946, including Camps in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Georgia, and Texas.
