I decided to take Sammy to the Paso Robles Downtown Park this morning to let him run around. We were greeted with dozens of American flags due to today being Veterans Day. Below are some photos from our time in the park but some highlights were:
~Seeing a group of four military men stopping at the plaque by the old water fountain which is for veterans from the Paso Robles area. They stopped, read it, removed their hats, appeared to have prayed, saluted, and then placed these three red flowers on the plaque. I am not sure what the red flowers mean, forgive me for that. I actually teared up watching them do this.
~A couple of people that are always at the park when I take Sammy and know him from that article that was in the SLO Tribune about the heart of stone around the tree, hollered and waved at Sammy. That always makes me chuckle. He’s Paso’s little mayor.
There you have it. Another day in the life.
Thank you to the veterans for doing what you do. No more words needed.
