I am currently in the UK and the annual poppy sale commenced yesterday, the
money raised goes for veterans needs. Everyone seems to particpate, all of the
newscasters, members of government, etc, along with the public proudly display
their poppy on their label. I have one on my jacket as well. November 11th here
is celebrated in a very solemn way, with reverance and respect for veterans. On
the 11th, at 11:00AM there is a two minute silence at which time all businesses
stop and there is silence. Not a person move. Of course there is the large
parade in London, veterans wearing their medals from all wars proudly march or
are pushed in their wheelcars, a site to see. Wreath laying takes place in the
big cities and small towns, honoring those who have given their lives in various
wars. A few years ago I was proud to watch my granddaughter, as head girl in her
school, lay a wreath along with many of the other wreaths, at the ceremonies in
Basingstoke where she lives. Well do I remember as a boy, living in New Haven,
CT before WWII, when on Nov. 11th, at 11:00AM everything would come to a
standstill and the factories would blow there whistles for two minutes.
Unfortunately those days are long gone and the day is celebrated by sales and
more sales. I have to hand it to our British cousins.

The Folsom Veteran's Day Parade is tomorrow starting at 9 AM.
My son, wife and I will not be attending this year as we will be at
the cemetary at our daughter's grave site. She passed 3 years
Everyone enjoy the time you have together and have a great
Veteran's Day. Enjoy the parade and give thanks that we are
living in a Free country where we can express our views, even
though we do not always, or seldom, agree with each other.

One thing that struck me a little bit (and maybe it was just the people in the area where we were... by the parking lot of Starbucks) was that the vets weren't receiving much applause but there was plenty of applause for the high school marching band, boy scouts, etc. It just struck me as odd on Veteran's Day. Hopefully, it wasn't like that along the rest of the route.
If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.

Thanks BJ's and all the other restaurants that are doing this for the vets.

It was really touching to see the different groups of children marching - Boy/Cub Scouts, Brownie/Girl Scouts, Interact Club, etc - leave the parade to shake hands and thank the veterans they spotted along the route to say "Thank you for your Service."
The flyover was cool, too.
