September 29, 2003 - Monday
Driving through town this afternoon, we went over the bridge on Main St. that we have driven over countless times and Harry said, "this is where the army trucks were." The only possible thing Harry could have been referring to, at least the only thing that makes any sense to me, is when we watched the Memorial Day parade from the spot on the bridge where he said this. Interestingly, it was a similarly gray day as today and the parade included a unit of soldiers in camouflage fatigues and a couple of camouflage vehicles. I don't remember exactly whether they were hummers or personnel carriers, but they clearly "went with" the marching soldiers. But the thing about this is that we missed the Memorial Day parade this year. Harry was remembering the parade from a year and a half ago, when he was less than two and a half.
