A fitting end....

to a sad day! This morning I attended a funeral making sure that Mom and Dad got there and back to their house. Early afternoon I was at a different cemetery at a little ceremony to put a DAR emblem on my cousin's headstone. At five o'clock we went to the local Mardi Gras parade. My cousin and her three grown children were here from Virginia to attend the funeral ( her mother-in-law and their grandmother). We decided we would check out the Mardi Gras parade to try to lift the spirits after this sad day. It worked. We had fun and they will be boarding a plane at 4:30 A.M. to go back to Virginia. It was their dad's mother who died. He was not quite as enthusiastic about a parade as we were. He took the opportunity to have some quiet time before going back to Virginia. If I had just buried my mother, I wouldn't be going to any parade either!!!
