A Reminder


We have been traveling, and coming back through Virginia on US 301, after we came through Fort A.P. Hill, we turned off and stopped in Bowling Green. A small town, with a lot of history, we walked the street, looking into the shops and reading the historical markers, finally deciding to eat at the Main Street Cafe.

We were after breakfast and before lunch, so we were the only customers. The waitress lingered to chat with us and Mrs. ASM asked, “Why do you still have all the Christmas decorations hanging from the ceiling?”

The waitress looked up up and said, “We decided to leave them up until all the boys come home from Iraq and Afghanistan, you know, to remind us to remember them.”

They also serve who only stand and wait.
