Happy Friday Pie Day........

So looking round the United Kingdom we have Burns Night in Scotland with Burns suppers in all Scottish communities.

Meanwhile in Wales and Welsh communities it is the Welsh equivalent of St. Valentines, 
St. Dwynwen's Day.


England on the other hand it is 
Friday Pie Day!!

EIGHT IN DOG YEARS

My dog and me are both the same age.
Eight in dog years, last birthday.
We've reached that time in our lives,
when the aging process is well underway.

Unwanted grey hairs and white whiskers.
Creaking joints with aching bones.
Tired, sore eyes, flabby jowls,
grumpy disposition, fluctuating hormones.

Our ages will never match again.
It will only happen once in our lifetime.
When September comes along this year,
Milly's dog years will be nine.

We'll continue to grow old side by side.
Although she'll soon be older than me.
Together, we'll stroll gently in the forest.
Together, we'll walk slowly by the sea.

LEST WE FORGET.

In Amlwch, Anglesey the local British Legion have created a poppy cascade at the church, they have huge colourful displays with woolen poppies in all local businesses, inside the church members of the Legion are knitting the poppies and developing moving tributes and they have amazing stalls selling all things 'Remembrance' and '100 Years On'.


Amlwch is no way on its own. I laud Amlwch because that's where I was this week and able to see close up the tremendous efforts put in by the British Legion and the community so we don't ever forget the first world war in particular but every event that has seen anyone give their life for their country.

These efforts have been reciprocated all around the nation so that tomorrow each and every one of us can REMEMBER.

We must do this.... whether it is a organised Remembrance service or you choose to remember in your own way...... We must do this....

                     LEST WE FORGET.













                      LEST WE FORGET.

Please don't forget the Purple Poppy either! These are for the thousands and thousands of animals that gave their lives in times of war.



and here's is Our Milly proudly wearing her purple poppy.....

LEST WE FORGET
