"If birds can fly over the rainbow..."

A sunny, hottish day. We made it to 89˚F, with the heat index at 90˚F. Currently, it's 77˚F.

To turn 56, and to do it during this mess? My Grandma Ramey, she turned 4 during the first year of the Spanish influenza epidemic in 1918.

And it was Memorial Day. And I spent a lot of the day thinking about that. Behind the cut is yesterday's tin soldier, as we found him. Only today did the significance of finding him a day before Memorial Day occur to me.
