Memorial Day service, and Installation of Officers.

One of the auxiliary officers sat in the back row with me. I got through it with tears, but no noise, or sobbing. Then the Installation of Officers, followed by sloppy Joes, crisps, and a full sheet cake.

Only 4 of us showed up apart from the officers, which was such a shame. I remember the 10/12 years Len was President, Chaplain, and a Trustee, and there were so many people that they had to bring in extra chairs.

The carnations from the service.

I am now home. and watching the Brentford -Swansea football match that was played at Wembley yesterday. It is the playoff to see who comes up into the Premier League. A win will create millions of pounds for the winning team. There are 12,000 supporters in the stands. Brentford are 2 – 0 up on the 63rd minute of play.

I know I could look at the result from yesterday, but that would take the fun out of it.

    Such a sign of respect.
