Memorial Day also makes me thankful, because the people I love are here with me and haven't been killed. Some people aren't so lucky, so I have a lot to be thank- ful for. I also fed pride, because my country is great, and I am proud to live in the same country as the people who gave their lives for us. Memorial Day isn't just a happy time. For many families it's a time of sorrow. Many families have relatives that died in a war. My grandma's brother was killed in the Vietnam War, so I can only remember stories about him. M family took a trip to Washing- ton D.C., and we saw my uncle's name on the Viet- nam memorial. It's so sad to hear about how he died, but the story fills me with pride. My uncle fought and died for this country. Who wouldn't be proud of that? Memorial Day is a time of remembrance. For some people, they remember the good times they had. Others think of the bad times. The people who have served and died for our country should at least be remembered, no matter what their contri- bution was. Their legacy should be heard. It doesn't matter what they did, they still helped our army, and those soldiers should be honored and remembered. We owe them that. Memorial Day isn't just a time to remember the deceased soldiers. It's a time to acknowledge and thank the veterans that are still alive. Just lorence's rner When I was dating Kenneth (way back in the 1930's), he was in charge of the sound system at the Logan County Fair so we spent a lot of time there. I can remember one time it rained so much that he was in mud up to his knees. But we were in love and you know how that goes so everything was fine. Back then there was no pavement. In 1961 for the sil-ten- nial, our Kitchen Band was organized. We gave lots of programs and were even on the Ted Mack's show on television. We also played several times on the stage at the Illi- nois Building. All of the Is that banjo music I hear? Chief Lynn Freer arrived on Winter Street to find a 1989 Lincoln in the ditch. The front end was heavily damaged and the frame was bent. Several people were standing around looking at the car. Most were shiftless, at least the males, and looked like extras from "Deliv- erance". The driver had tried a u-turn; accidentally hit the accelerator and the car ended up with the front end in the corn. The Lincoln was judged too damaged to be driven. An accident report was completed. No citations were issued. Mt. Pulaski Times because they already have a holiday in November, doesn't mean they can't be recognized now. They deserve it. They fought for our country, and lived to tell about it. That's pretty awesome. Sure, now there usually aren't a whole lot of casualties, but there used to be. People used to be lucky to oame hack home. They should at least get recognition for what they did. Memorial Day is a really special day. I get to spend time with family and friends. I get to listen to stories about times from a war I wasn't alive for. I get to hear stories about those people who are no longer here to tell their own story. I get to remember those who have died and those who are still alive. Memorial Day is fun for me because I'm surrounded by those who love me I think it really means a lot.

Many a time someone would want to buy her whistle. She was so good. I told a lot of jokes to keep the audi- ence interested. We did have loads of fun_ ARer we broke up, I helped the llli- opolis band until I was 90. On the Li&hter Side Beth had this note on her refrig- erator. Roast and tatters in oven, pie on stove, apple- sauce in fridge and I still love you. She was pleased when she came home and found his note: Honey, Roast and tatters in belly; pie on my face, applesauce on my pants, and dirty dishes in sink, and I still love you.
