First off I would like to remember all those men and women who have given their lives to protect and keep our country free.
For me this is the offical start of summer. The end of summer to me is labor day. My kids wanted to go to what they call "Cannon Ball Park" on Friday when I picked them up. What it is is a park maintained in Decatur called the "American Legion" park. I assume the American Legion either donates to the park or runs and maintains it. The kids indicated there was some new play ground equipment there they wanted to try out. Normally when we go to this park there are usually no other kids around to play. This time the play ground was packed.
