Happy Memorial Day to you All
I can remember my dearly departed grandmother always referring to this day as Decoration Day. The practice of decorating soldiers’ graves with flowers is an ancient custom. Soldiers’ graves were decorated in the U.S. before, during, and after the Civil War. In 1868, General John A. Logan proclaimed a national and annual observation of “Decoration Day” on May 30. The holiday was changed to include all service men and women after World War I. It became known as Memorial Day over Decoration Day after World War II. My father and both grandfathers were all in the service, and along with them, let's keep all the service men and woman in our memories, not to mention out new hero's and service people in these new times.
And a bear sighting near Fanny Chapman Park in Doylestown! Very close by...less then 10 minutes. No doubt looking for the Casa du Borghese. Good thing I have about five jars of honey.
