Happy Memorial Day

Daily Prompt:  Detonate

If you live in the United States you are more than likely celebrating Memorial Day.  Today we remember those who have served our country to preserve our freedom.  It also signifies the beginning of summer.  There are parades, picnics and in Miami Beach this weekend there is an air show.

My son lives in South Beach right on the beach.  He called me yesterday to tell me about the air show going on right along the beach.  While we were on the phone, I heard a loud boom.  It sounded like a bomb had been detonated.   Gary told me that a stealth bomber had just passed by his building and he was standing on his balcony watching the show.

I was sorry I was not there to see those planes in action.  He went on to tell me that there were numerous boats anchored right off shore to watch the show.  I was concerned that my granddaughter, who is only fifteen months old would be frightened by the loud noise. Thankfully she was with her mommy at a birthday party away from the beach.

I really think it would be cool to take a ride in one of those stealth bombers.  It would certainly be the ultimate amusement park ride, don’t you think?

Happy Memorial Day and thank you to those who have served.
