I've been attending Veteran Day ceremonies since my dad passed away a few years ago. He was part of the "Greatest Generation" and was so proud to be in the Marines. He served in the Army and the Marines. Dad didn't talk much about his experiences in the service and I'm sorry I didn't ask more questions.
The day was warm and windy; gusts up to 45 mph. The flags snapping in the wind.
Th honor guard had to hold on tight to their flags
I've seen a couple of movies since I'm not working right now. Argo was very good; I didn't think I would like it. Ben Affleck was very understated in his role and I learned several things about this incident. My only disappointment is that the darn movie theater's extremely loud sound system. Next time I must remember to bring my ear plugs.
I read all the Hunger Games books and enjoyed the movie. Jennifer Lawrence was Katniss. Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz were excellent in their roles. I'm looking forward to the next installment.
part of the decorations. I made D's spider costume again this year. He has been a snake, komodo dragon and a spider, next year he has decided to be a zombie, so my costume sewing days might be over!!!
finally got to see another game, most of the games we have tried to attend have been cancelled for various reason. This game was at the last minute (or 2 hours notice since that is the distance we have to travel) The quality of the photos are a little shaky because it was so cold. Earlier that day it was 75 degrees.
I meant to post this photo before Halloween, I'm really really late for that! I saw this tree along the highway and it struck me how it looked like a tattered ghost. The next day I had the opportunity to stop along the highway with out getting killed to take this. You might have to squint and use your imagination to see the ghost.
