SOMETHING WEIRD

This little guy came and sat on my window sill and watched me for the longest time! I thought he was pretty adorable and a bit funny looking with his “grandpa eye brows”, but have since learned he is likely a baby robin, so not so weird, after all…..but definitely still adorable!!!

The High Ground Veterans Memorial Park

I came to my blog for information about a specific memorial monument I photographed in 2016 – I had the photos, but couldn’t remember the actual name of the memorial. I felt was a perfect representation of today’s holiday – Memorial Day – and wanted to post it to my Facebook page. Well, I found the post and saw that it mentioned that I planned to do a separate post about the entire veterans memorial park because it was so impressive……but, I discovered I never followed through with that…..so, what better day to do it than today!!!??? So, here it is…..better late than never!

In 2016 during the Most Excellent Adventure cross country motor home trip I took with my brother, sister-in-law, and her sister, we stopped at the High Ground Veterans Memorial Park in Neillsville, Wisconsin, near my sister-in-law’s home town. It is one of the most impressive Veterans Memorial Parks I have ever visited. Here are some of the photos I should have posted back in 2016!

First – the memorial that prompted me to look back at this park today:

This memorial says pretty much everything there is to say about this holiday – It is called “Fountain of Tears” – the top portion is a soldier who gave his life for his country……and the water trickling down to the woman and child represents the tears of the loved ones he left behind to grieve for him.So……while you enjoy your cookouts and visits to the beach, please be sure to remember the reason behind this holiday…..remember those brave men and women who gave their lives for your right to take the day off work and eat hotdogs and play in the lakes.

We will remember them!

And, now for the rest of the park:
