On Flanders Monday

Another weekend is in the files, so how was yours? Surprise, surprise … we stayed busy!

My wife continues to follow doctor’s orders, so no ballroom for us. Our weekend considered of hosting a friend for dinner and wine, a college football game, playing euchre with a few neighbors, and being caretakers as both of my in-laws had recent setbacks.

Last week I mentioned our Japanese Maple was approaching being full red. One week later, it’s about 50% bare.

By the way, is anyone else suddenly not receiving emails about new posts from those you follow?

Whether its Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, or by any other name or even another day, for many it’s a day to honor the living who served. For others, it’s a day of remembrance for those who sacrificed. Either way, I’m foregoing my traditional Monday Morning Entertainment for a tribute to the original day while providing two appropriate videos around In Flanders Field – the top as a poem, the bottom as a hymn. Take your pick

Have a good week.
