Good evening everyone.
Beautiful pics tonight, Ma!

I attended the funeral of my Uncle Ernest today.
He was my Poppas younger brother.
It was a very beautiful service.
He had a long career as an LEO, and had also served in the Air Force.
So, his procession had a full police escort, and also there were two young men from the Air Force there.
One played a beautiful rendition of Taps, then together they unfolded the flag, refolded it, and gave it to my Aunt.
*sniff*
My little family gets smaller every year.

Good evening, Ms. B.

Sorry to hear about your Uncle. The GI Generation leaves us one at a time.

Been busy getting my videos and the Christmas stuff ready. Then researching Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Stephen Foster and Scott Joplin for next year. No rest for the wicked.
