Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you and yours.

High gas prices be darned. The weather is sweet. There's plenty to do right around here (besides the obvious, go out for ice cream). Enjoy your graduation parties, 'welcome back summer' gatherings and backyard bbq's. And if you think of it, check out the annual Memorial Day parade. 10 am. Starts at the Community Center on Clark, wanders down Cottage, Union, and Main, to the War Memorial by the Library. It's always cool, in a small town, tip your hat to a veteran, wave to a little leaguer or girl scout, kind of way.

Whatever you're doing, hope you're enjoying it.

All we have of freedom, all we use or know -This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899
