I do miss the tradition of buying, and wearing a poppy this time of the year, in remembrance of our fallen heroes.
Right now I am watching the Aston Villa – West Ham match, and delighted that the Hammers scored in the 7th minute. Sorry Sheree. All the matches are showing an hour later here, because the clocks changed overnight, in England.
Since starting this post 2 goals have been scored, one for each side, so West Ham are still leading 2 – 1 against Villa.
I also checked about poppies in America, and National Poppy Day is May 28th.
