Celebration sparks walk down memory lane

You are going to have to give me a little scat room today. I am having an attack of the nostalgias. Going down someone else's Memory Lane can be as boring as a lecture on the life cycle of guppies but this has been a reflective few weeks for me.

Nothing like a parade to start the week

Tuesday, April 28: My weekend began with the annual Stand Up For America Parade in my hometown of Port Wentworth. While all parades are special, this one always brings back memories of my childhood as I can remember riding my bicycle in this parade as well as marching with my youth baseball teams when I was growing up here. Despite the inclement weather that shortened the day's activities, the parade was a special event as usual.
