~ Listening to the end of the Indy 500. I have always LISTENED to this race; we don't live far enough away to watch it on TV. There is just something about hearing the excitement of the race from the radio announcers' perspective.
~ I could just kick my self for not taking my camera with me this morning on our trip up to Brook, Indiana. This is home base for my family, and Tall Guy and I took the girls up for the Memorial Day ceremonies. An elderly man read the names of those who served their country and are buried in the Brook Cemetery. From the Civil War on up. I was able to hear so many familiar names including the name of my Grandpa Wikle, my uncles, Floyd, Dick, Danny, Warren, Howard, and Swede (Don), and many other friends of our family. Click here for a recap from Veteran's Day to see some great pics! The graves in our little corner of the cemetery were beautifully decorated with flags and flowers. Can't believe I left my camera at home! Oh well, I have the memory, and I hope you all are able to visit your family's cemetery to remember those who came before us.
~ We are so taking it easy this weekend. It's raining just north of us, we had .7 inches of rain yesterday, about a half inch the day before, and we are really praying for a day of sun with some wind.
~ Thinking about my nephew, Josh, in Afghanistan, serving his second tour and getting ready to come home at the end of next month.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
