Travis was lucky enough to get a few days off in a row so we had date night and went to see "Nightcrawler", great performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, very creepy! Enjoying Thai food as we plan for our trip to Asia in April.
Honouring our veterans tomorrow:
IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
By Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium
