It is amazing how quickly you can get over yourself. All it takes is a deep breath, a thought back to the signs that have been posted for weeks and a realization that no one else thinks you are the center of the Universe. In fact, you are probably not on anyone’s radar screen.
So it really is your own fault that you forgot that today was Heritage Day.

But I just hadn’t had it settle through with the implications.

Military Toys and Demos

And tomorrow is back to work, clean clothes but no mowing or vacuuming.
