and... the background is quite eye catching! That's so neat that you snap pictures of tombstones for people who are trying to connect with their history and roots!
if it's not a stupid question, what is Memorial Weekend?
It's not a stupid question at all. Memorial *Day* was originally May 30th, to remember fallen soldiers and other deceased loved ones by placing flowers and wreaths on their graves. Many cemeteries have a ceremony at the military monument, and towns have parades down Main Street that include bands and veterans groups marching.At some point the date was changed to the last Monday in May, so that it became a 3-day holiday weekend and the symbolic start of summer. Many families gather at lakes to camp out, swim and water ski.
Thanks, Marie! Hopefully I'll find my stash of ancient postcards before Friday!
A photo of a tombstone is the only way some people will ever see where a loved one is buried. Glad you like the background, but it may change several times in the next day or two!
