I am willing to serve my country,~ John Buford (American – Soldier / March 4, 1826 – December 16, 1863)
but do not wish to sacrifice
the brave men under my command.
Holidays and Celebrations:
March Forth, or do something day as we continue our journey to the spring of 2021. I finally received my seed order yesterday, just in time to start the petunias and tomatoes. COVID-19 vaccines are underway in Canada, slowly but surely. My husband is registered to receive his first vaccine on Saturday Morning because he is indigenous, but otherwise the rollout to the general population is starting with those 80 and over. The appointments filled up within 3 hours of being made available on line. In Texas the numbers have decreased significantly as all COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and masks are no longer required.
March 4th is also the day to get out the old Band songs as we celebrate Marching Music Day. I love the sound of a marching band and the thrill of a parade. The drums leading the band and keeping them in step. I had a brief experience of Marching in a band and it is much harder than it looks to keep step. Hopefully this summer parades can march again.
The other and probably most important reason for celebrating March 4th is that it is National Sons Day. So here’s a special handclap for all the wonderful sons of the world. A woman that has only sons will be surrounded by handsome men all of her life.
