@@@@ News of Pigeon Falls– the little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and people still celebrate Memorial Day– It is Memorial Day in Pigeon Falls and as they have for as long as anybody can remember they will celebrate as only small towns can celebrate. There will be a parade starting at the town hall and marching out to the cemetery. It will be lead by the High School Band. Almost everyone that ever served in the military will put on their old uniform and march behind the band. At the cemetery they will place wreaths on the monuments to soldiers who died in every war. Then the band will play Taps. If it is hot and it looks like it will be today some of the band members will collapse as others have before them. A makeshift stage will be set up and some politician will speak on those who went away and never came back, In the middle of his speech the loudspeaker system will fail. It does every year. After the service people will put flowers on the graves of loved ones. People will remember. It is a day for memories.

It was a good day. We went out to lunch with Peter and his kids. From there we went to Menards and got stuff for the garden. Then Bree, Pennie, Betty and I played Canasta. Bree and Pennie won. Now I need a breathing treatment.
