MOSTLY CLOUDY AND MILD IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING, 80% CHANCE OF RAIN THEY SAY. THE CHEROKEES ARE UNDERWHELMED.

THIS WAS INTERESTING:

I HAVE LONG BEEN RELUCTANT TO DRIVE MY TOY CARS ON TWO LANE ROADS AT NIGHT; IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE HAS THEIR LIGHTS ON HIGH BEAM. AND SINCE CATARACT SURGERY I DON'T RECOVER FROM BRIGHT LIGHT VERY FAST.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA, A TWO NAP DAY IS LIKELY. IT'S A DAY OF REST, AFTER ALL :-)

Such a remarkable day in history. Salutes, thank you's and much love to those men who landed that day, and the following days, to help liberate Europe. They gave their lives for freedom.

I find one of the most striking things about the whole day to be Eisenhower's "in case of failure" letter—never needed, of course

"Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone."

The men and women who served on the front lines and those that helped the dead and wounded gave it all. Many wracked with fear as they watched their comrades in arms fall in great numbers. The blood washed beaches, bodies piling up and floating in the wakes. I've seen the footage. It is shocking to say the least.

Hot and humid. Suprising, aye? Working on vehicles and tags and insurance cards and matching toll transponders with the vehicles. Had to add trailer tag, delete another and drop a transponder that we didn't take out when we sold the van. There were no charges run up so that's good.

Hey guys, a busy day here. Up early and off to church, then home to continue the building project. Walls up and trusses built and up on the building. Tomorrow a beam to support the lean-to roof.

The longest day.... one of the greatest days in American history.
