Memorial Day in America

So it's Memorial Day weekend. Again as a nation we pause and remember the defenders of freedom who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the good old US of A. Parades are a show of support as was the Wacousta, Michigan annual Memorial Day parade this morning. It was featured on this blog last year too. I never miss it. Here we see the local Boy Scouts leading off as bearers of the Stars and Stripes. Now last year they had a uniformed group carrying the flag. Don't know where they were this year. Like the rest of America, I like Spongebob, but even he doesn't make up for the soldiers.
Sadly, there will be no ball playing in the Wacousta park this year. Maybe water polo.

Looking forward to dinner on the grill tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend.
