I know we all have different opinions, but I felt an overwhelming pride for my country, our military, and our flag as I stood there and listened to the US Marine playing taps, and then watched two young Marines folding the US flag and hand it to the family of a Veteran who was at Iwo Jima and I had to wonder how anyone who has EVER watched this live can possibly refuse to stand for the flag at any occasion.

Enjoyed looking around at the open house of a new home decor store in town. Sad to report that I did not win one of the door prizes.

    Followed your link to the pumpkin mac-n-cheese recipe. Oh, my gravy. Sounds so very scrumptious.

    Your New England trip sounds delightful. I really, really want to revisit that area. PC and I need to make some plans. But then there’s the beach and that cruise, too!!

    I am all for freedom of speech but hate to see what I consider disrespectful behavior toward our flag, too. Watched a video of people on a plane pushing to get off although they had been asked to sit in respect until the body of a soldier was removed first. So sad.

    Your berry-colored top is lovely on you. Great lip color, too. Wow, you sure clean up good, girl!

      Thanks so much Jo. You will love the mac and cheese! Although I should have noted that I could not find pumpkin ale, so I bought ale and pumpkin spice and it was delicious! πŸ™‚
