Memorial Day 2016

 The Middle Tennessee Veteran Cemetery on McCrory Lane was previously an old dairy farm and the rock building was the barn on the old farm. 
 My blog friend Duta did a post once about it being a Jewish tradition to leave a rock on the grave you visited. I found that most interesting so I left one for Walley Coyote (my affectionate name for Walter) His wife was called Monk by all and I know not why. Both were delightful to be around . RIP

 The large flag was silent to mark the occasion. 



 These photos were taken from left to right and there are many graves for those who served our country to keep the freedoms that we have. Do not take these in vain. 
People were gathering for a service for those who had died this year. At 11 AM all the names of those who died this year were read and a bell rang after each name. The worker who directed us to park advised that another service for the Flag  would be held at 3 PM. We encountered several people putting flowers on graves or taking photos. If you have not gone to a Veteran Cemetery then it is something you should put on your to do list. The Kitty Justice is to bend your head in prayer and thank God for Vets.

 HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL YOU WONDERFUL MOTHERS OUT THERE IN BLOGLAND. Today weather here in TN was made to order for us Mothers. It is perfect and God has Blessed us all. 
 My mother, Vinia (first i is a long i and the second is silent so you pronoun it Viiiii na)as a teenager. I am super proud to call her Mother and only hope I can emulate her in thought, words and deeds. She never said she was a christian but it was evident in her actions. I am truly Blessed that she was my Mother and I was raised by her. BTW She did not have a selfish bone in her body.  I wish I could call and wish her Happy Mothers Day one more time but I truly believe she knows how much we children miss her. She was beautiful outside and the beauty was bone deep. Kiss your Mom if you still have one otherwise just join me in reminiscing. 
Today is little brother burpday and he turns the grand age of sixty. By his choice he has cut all family ties with his sisters but we still love him. Later I feel he will regret his choice when we are no longer on the top side of this world but alas then it will be too late. 
Maybe I am a funny one BUT DO NOT COME AFTER I AM DEAD AND DO NOT SEND ME FLOWERS BECAUSE IT IS A USELESS EMPTY VISIT AND GIFT. 
THE KITTY JUSTICE IS TO LOVE THOSE AND VISIT THOSE WHO ARE IN YOUR LIFE AND REMEMBER WITH FONDNESS THOSE WHO HAVE DIED AND BEEN A WONDERFUL PART OF YOUR LIFE.
