November 8, 2011 Almost Veteran’s Day

It’s  a delight outside today. But there are still little dots of snow in my yard as well as piles of torn tree limbs to remind me of the October 29th blizzard. Fortunately we have a few more days of lovely weather to enjoy the russet and red leaves that haven’t fallen. I do believe that the premature snow stressed the trees into more vivid colors. There’s a gorgeous full red leafed maple out my window and a slight breeze is shaking the golden leaves off other trees.

Veteran’s Day will be special this year as Rich and I are being honored by the Bedford NH  Historical Society. They have conserved the Civil War Flag that we donated to them and want to celebrate the occasion with us as quests at the city hall. Doris Spurway, a fixture at the Bedford Historical Society, will deliver a speech about the history of 33 starred flags and flags in general. Doris is an amazing woman – still going strong in her ninth decade.
