We are having a relaxing day...Den is out digging in the garden beds, Lucy is napping and Roxie is in my lap while I read. The weather is lovely...the neighbor hood is quiet...and I always think of the parade that probably just finished in the town that I grew up in...sigh!

Reading this...

Thinking of them...they would have been sitting on our porch watching the parade...and afterwards there would have been ice cream and stick pretzels and RC Cola! I almost forgot that my dad had tats!

I never fail to miss them!


  1. Isn't it funny the way holidays make us so reflective? I hope your day is grand!

  2. My dad in law has a tat in the same spot. My grandpa had them all over, he was a sailor!

    Enjoy your lovely day.

  3. Aww...what an wonderful picture of your folks. I know how you feel. I waxed nostalgic myself today. I always love to visualize your quaint, small town childhood...God bless you!

  4. I love remembering small town parades, too; and picnics. With hot dogs, homemade ice cream, and fresh fruit.

    Enjoy your day!

  5. Interesting combination, ice cream and pretzels! Love RC! Happy Memorial Day.

  6. We have a small town parade here but I've never been to it. Sweet pic of your parents. I think Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby is the one with pretzels so ice cream and pretzels must be a fave with a lot of folks. RC Cola?? Love it. Remember Tab?
