Veterans Day, Covered Bridges, and Stills


Rosedale Garden 



With a three-day weekend for Veterans Day, the area had numerous events. American Legion Post 31 in Tuscumbia had their annual parade down Main Street on Friday November 10 followed by a program. Afterward, all were invited to their hall for lunch. Two of the walls at the hall are covered with pictures of those who gave their life in service of their country going back to the mid-1800s.  What is so sad are three of those who died during the Vietnam War don’t have a picture available. Only a newspaper clipping.


The next morning, I caught up with Wayne Chaney for his annual rendition of Taps honoring veterans at the Marriott Shoals in Florence.

Thanks Dave. Hope you have a great and Merry Christmas. Hopefully I can get my garden plowed up next spring so I can get back to some good veggies.

Mary, yes, those hooligans have had some rough fun posing for past Christmas pictures. They certainly have brought joy, excitement, irritation, and fear when lost into your emotional life. I'm waiting expectantly for the Hooligans Christmas letter to Santa for this year. You always seems to take the best pictures and give a little history lesson along with them. Retirement has been a great thing for your local travels with camera in hand. It's always interesting and a joy to read your posts. Have a great picture taking day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. Nebraska Dave
