when I went downstairs a red hibiscus was in full bloom and I could see the snow on the ground… reminded me of a poppy

spent a good portion of the morning watching the Remembrance Day service from Ottawa…

remembering my mother and father and George’s father and their service to our country… neither my father or George’s ever talked about what they did…

my mom’s work involved removing or adjusting pictures of ships so that when they were published in newspapers anywhere in the world they wouldn’t be recognizable as a certain ship… she was heavily involved in having this statue designed and raised at the Legislative grounds… this picture was one I downloaded from the internet, and there was no information about who took it…

had a quiet day thinking of them and also George… his dad died just a few days before Remembrance Day which made the day very special for both of us…
