Monday the Topeka Capitol city Chorus will sing for a Memorial Day Service. Should be fun. We will sing the National Anthem, America the beautiful, Battle Hymn and the Armed Forces Medley. These are four of my favorite songs and I hope we are well tuned up. We will wear our Tuxedos and those of us that were in the Military will wear our ribbons. The one I will wear with the most pride is the one that says Retired as it represents a nice chunk of change arriving in my bank account each month. OK, it represents 30+ years in uniform and that makes me very happy and proud.

Our son and his wife are going to celebrate their anniversary soon. I don't have a clue what to suggest we get them. I guess I should just hope that Barb will have some good ideas. That has worked well so far but I guess I should have an idea or two. I don't think a lid for their septic system is a bad idea but Barb does. Oh well, I always was more practical than pretty.
Sometime in the next day or two I will go over to the cemetery where Mom and Dad are buried and put up some flags and flowers. Seems like the least I can do. I will take pictures and put them out to the family.
Better get rolling and do something worthwhile.
