There seems to be two situations that cause me to have trouble keeping up with my blogging. The first being a question of time. Sometimes I'm just up to my ears in work and sometimes I am up to a whole bunch of fun. Either way, a lack of time equals a lack of blogging. The second scenario is one that is more recent and may just be personal to me. You see, I just don't seem able to blog so much when I am up to my neck in worry over whatever in the heck is happening to the country that I love... (I know, I know. I shouldn't let it get to me so personally and yet I don't always win the battle to remain positive.)
Recently, I have experienced BOTH of my blogger delaying scenarios. Today, I will stick with the positive.
As far as the being busy in a fun way, there was another trip back down to Palm Springs for Memorial Day week. We did make it to the Flower Drop at the Palm Springs Air Museum and it was completely awesome!
There was a solemn beauty in the desert this past Memorial Day as a Mitchell B-25 Bomber was escorted onto the runway:
She started up and was off to complete her mission:
The fantastic piece of WWII history buzzed over the crowd three times:
The White Carnations represented our military members lost from and prior to WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. The Red Carnations were for those lost in more recent wars including The Persian Gulf, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Pride spilled out in the form of tears for so many in the crowd as we focused on the brave Americans who had given everything that these red and white carnations represented, falling against a perfect blue sky. I can honestly say that I have never seen anything quite like it. This really was a meaningful way to spend Memorial Day.
