Veterans Day in Savannah

  Kongo flew to Florida from Boston yesterday and found himself with a holiday on his hands so he headed up the road a few hours north to visit Savannah, Georgia.  It seemed as if the whole city turned out to greet the monkey and they even threw a parade for him complete with these dancing, foot stomping, troop of girls from a local high school.  Turns out that it was actually a Veterans Day parade and since, after all, Kongo is a veteran he felt pretty good about showing up for the big event!

Veterans Day

Grass Pile the bodies high at Austerlitz and Waterloo, Shovel them under and let me work— I am the grass; I cover all. And pile them high at Gettysburg And pile them high at Ypres and Verdun. Shovel them under and let me work. Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor: What place is this? Where are we now? I am the grass. Let me work. — Carl Sandburg (1878 – 1967) Photo taken on the site of the Battle of Lexington Related articles Remembrance Day – Veterans Day – 2012 (papundits.wordpress.com)
