Memorial Day weekend always reminds me of Countryside Swim & Tennis Club because that’s when the pool would be filled with F~R~I~G~I~D ice water and kids with no sense would race to the edge and jump in, bobbing around until they turned blue!

But it also reminds me of the Memorial Day parade to the local Revolutionary War cemetery for a graveside service.

The parade included Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Brownies, the elementary school band, the fife and drum corps (dressed in Revolutionary War garb), military veterans, volunteer firefighters, the town’s First Aid Squad, and local dignitaries.

Freedom.  It’s a good thing!

Aah . . . that’s better!
