Memorial Day things.

Took ma-pa to the Memorial Day Parade. My dad is a WWII Vet. 20 years old and on the island of Guam outside of Japan. They were preparing for a death march into Japan one inch at a time. He also served in the Korean War and left the Marine Corps as a Sargent. I salute and thank you papa, for putting your life on the line for our freedom.

Here is my mama and papa and my fat head.

Well if you've been reading this blog you know that my mama is chair bound and papa is headed for some cancer surgery. So we divided up the feed the parent duties and other responsibilities amongst us siblings. I got this thing all figured out. "TAKE OUT". So afterwards I pedaled back over to ma-pa's house and picked up the left overs, dropped them off at home and went for a two hour evening bike ride.

Pulled up along side this fellow pedaling down by the river. I asked him if I could take some pictures? He said sure, I'll pull over and I said no keep pedaling I'll pedal along with ya and take some pictures.

Following my shadow home. Had fun riding through town and in parks, and all over.

Well back to work tomorrow, well it pays for the bike parts. :-)
Thanks for stopping, over and out.
