Apparently, DFO is taking this whole vacation thing seriously. He didn't even leave a Wild Card for today! So here's one for those who are indoors or can figure out how to combine blogging with lake activities and barbecuing. We visited my Dad's grave at Fairmont Memorial Park yesterday. The view from the bluff is spectacular and the acres of flags never fail to move me.
