DAY 309 of NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: Fire Truck Reflection

working together- is what the firemen did for the veterans and others who gathered here for the service.  They raked and gathered the leaves so the area would be pristine for the event.

I missed including this photo of the veteran playing "Taps." 
mea culpa!

I am thankful for all veterans  for their service to our nation  that didn't always show our appreciation.   Today marked the 30th anniversary of this memorial.

DAY 303 of NONNIE'SPHOTO A DAY: A Blended Family

Today this family would be called a blended family, but in the late 1930s, they were just a family.  The adults are the Kern siblings (including my mom in white clothes and my dad in the middle) with their spouses, mother and their step-father.  The three children are Duckworth siblings. Grandpa Kern died at age 41 leaving seven children.  I knew only my grandpa Duckworth. Two Kern brothers were not present for the taking of the picture.  Judging from the size of the three younger siblings, I was born two years after this.
