    Nice, Barry.

    I wish I lived close enough to my parents resting place so that I could visit occasionally, but I'm in DE and they are in RI. Don't know that I will ever make it back up there, and I'm moving to NC soon, so that will even widen the gap.

    And Decoration Day is the original old name for Memorial Day here in the U.S.
    I've Been Boo'd
    Thanks, Barry

    Looks good, Barry! Colorful and cheerful!

    The cemetery where my grandparents are buried allows only artificial flowers. You aren't supposed to place items directly into the ground, other than a flag.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
