Day 108 of 365: Remembering D-Day
Today was the 65th anniversary of D-Day.
Lots of programs and movies were being shown in commemoration of the day, and there was even a celebration in Portsmouth that Ian and I went to. There wasn't a whole lot there. Just a band playing swing music with dancers dressed up in military garb from the era. Also there were military jeeps and tents set up in part of a field. The British Legion was there, selling some things to raise money for their organization (Ian bought us wristbands).
After leaving the tents and the noise, Ian and I sat by the water watching the waves crash and people watched.
Then later in the evening we went to our friends Jon and Amanda's place because Amanda wanted me to see their new kittens.
Ian and I absolutely fell in love....and now we're seriously considering getting a cat (it's also therapeutic for seniors...especially those with Alzheimer's and dementia). So keep an eye on this space to see if we get one! It wouldn't be able to replace Ashes (whom I miss like CRAZY), but it'll just add to our little family.
