June 14, Flag Day, Fathers Day, Thoughts and Curves
Here is another blog that WordPress lost in my transition. This one is from 6/14/2008.
First things first, it is my parents Anniversary. They would have been married 55 years today. It is the first June 14th that has passed that both of them are gone.
Today is also Flag Day. Unlike the bitter half of one of our candidates, I’ve always been proud of my country.
And of course, the greatest moment in Flag Saving History, Rick Monday Saves a Flag from being burned.
Birth of the Army – In 1775, this was the birth of the Army, thank you George Washington. The only thing the government has done consistently right is to defend our country. I hope the next president keeps that in mind
Fathers day – Tomorrow is Father’s Day. My Dad isn’t around any more. If yours is, appreciate the time you have left. In honor of him, I drove his car, on the curvyest road I could find. His car was meant for the turns.
Today was also the start of the 24 Hours of LeMans. I used to go to races with my Dad, in the car pictured here. So I’m melancholy today. In honor of our memories, I bought a grille badge on eBay.
So I thought about my parents, the country…and while I was exceeding the speed limit, enjoying the curves.
