On this Memorial Day I remember my Dad who flew PBY's for the US Navy during World War II. I grew up hearing his stories of attending flight schools around the south, landing in New Orleans and listening to live Jazz for the first time, landing at Pensacola only to find his gas tanks totally empty, and working with a Red Sox baseball legend (Ted Williams) to make sure he passed ground school.
I also spent this morning catching up on my Civil War block of the week...boy had I fallen behind! I made three...which only leaves two more to make me current.
It is way too hot to be outside today...I did get a few photos of the pink daylillies that bloomed this morning. The bloom measures almost 6 inches across!
