It started after the War Between the States, by any other name, as a means to remember the fallen in that war. It is now, by extension, to remember the fallen in any war.
And so I do.
Today we are getting wet in these parts of North Central Baja Jorja. What remains of Tropical Storm Beryl is now a tropical depression. Right at the moment we are between bands, though likely to get more rain today. This is a good thing, as we've been extraordinarily dry recently, as in draught dry.
Pretty fitting, I think.
