Independence Day


Happy July 4th to all! We should never forget the terrible price that some have paid to keep us independent. When I was in San Francisco, I shot some pictures at the cemetery in The Presidio. This may well be the last cemetery located in San Francisco. Many years ago, they moved all the cemeteries out of town because the real estate was just too valuable to be used by the dead. But I'm sure this military burial ground was exempt from that decision. Driving around this place, I imagined it was very similar to Arlington, except Arlington must be much, much larger. Very somber, very quiet and very humbling. The rows of graves just seemed to go on forever.

Thanks for the pics Earnie. I wish everyone knew what the 4th was really about.

PS-any album posts coming soon?

I'd comment, but you've banned me from the comments section....

Hope you have a great 07-04. As I speak, much-needed rain is pouring down.

It's raining on cats and dogs. It's also raining cats and dogs.

Hey Brian-Probably no new full LPs for a while. Christmas in July will carry me through the end of the month, then I have to start prepping for Christmas in December. I do hav a couple of records in the can that I recorded, but never scanned. Maybe I'll get those out there sometime.

Lee-I guess I'll un-ban you, since you're being so nice. But watch it!!!
