Celebrating the Fourth

Went down to the country seat yesterday to help out with a community project and stayed for a while to watch the annual parade. The gentleman on the right of the color guard is no spring chicken, but the fellow on the left is 90 years old. He and that Garand he's toting (or one just like it) did some good work on our behalf a long, long time ago.

And the perfect ending of that parade would be for everyone to gather 'round the gazebo in the park and listen to some of the old guys just tell their stories. Lots to learn there, for sure.
