    A beautiful image. We will indeed remember.

    Nice and appropriate for today, Jude. They won’t be forgotten as long as most of us ‘oldies’ are alive. I hope it carries on through the next generations too.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Also today is 9 years since my younger brother’s funeral. A horrible wet and grey day. So this date has a very personal meaning too.

      1. beetleypete says:

        Sad indeed, Jude. And whatever the weather, there’s no getting past that memory.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Indeed. Rather put me off attending another funeral service.

  3. Pit says:

    We certainly will!

  4. Su Leslie says:

    So to hear it’s a sad anniversary for you personally Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It was a horrible day, but he’d been suffering for a long time with MS. Only 63 when he died.

      1. Su Leslie says:

        MS is terrible. We have two friends with quite recent diagnoses: both younger than us. And 63 seems very young to me these days πŸ™

        1. Heyjude says:

          He was diagnosed at 42 and was in a home 10 years later. It seems to affect men quite rapidly, he deteriorated very quickly. But he kept his sense of humour.

        2. Su Leslie says:

          😦 That’s interesting about men being affected more rapidly. We have another, woman, friend who was diagnosed in her early 30s and seems to have longer periods of remission/wellness than either of the blokes we know with MS.

          I think being able to hold on to humour is a wonderful gift, for both the sufferer and friends and family.

      A photo taken during the first lockdown when I was exercising near the beach.

        It’s a lovely composition

          Thanks. I thought so too.

    “In Flanders Field” was a poem we all memorized in November in seventh grade. I will always associate poppies with that poem. Lovely image on such a sad day.

  7. Sending you hugs on this sad anniversary, Jude. Such a beautiful image. πŸ€—
