I do not know where the flower came from. Somehow it ended up in almost everybody’s hair/mouth, etc this evening.
Another happy couple and that red flower…
The man who refuses to have his photo taken.
Ohhh, too slow grasshopper. Got you. Plus now it looks like you are flashing a gang sign. Word to your mother.

The uniforms may change, but the faces do not. Top, Vietnam War Memorial. Bottom, Korean War Memorial.
I am currently reading a fascinating book on this guy. His character, intelligence and foresight alone were far grander than even this statue can convey.
Sometimes, there's just so much beauty in this world…
Looking out, across the river.
