Memorial Day 2018

I spent this Memorial Day quietly.

Sisters Karen and Beth have visited the Lee’s Summit Historical Cemetery which now has the graves of both of our parents:

This is an odd feeling, on this day in particular.

Meanwhile I’ve watered the plants and walked the dog and napped and made a pig-pickin’ cake and paid bills and barbecued burgers and done quite a bit of Webster University work.

And now it’s time to read for a while.

Memories: Eastern Airlines

memories - 2

We found several boarding cards amongst my father’s belongings.

Here is one for Mom, for a wide-body when airlines were still flying wide-body jets on short haul domestic flights.  Mom was in seat 28J.

Eastern Airlines when out of business in 1991, so this flight was sometime between 1986 when they became missionaries and 1991.
