Memorial Day 2008 - Middletown WW2 Graves

I was very sad when my son Nathan was not interested in going with me to the cemetary this Memorial Day. Nathan, now 6, claimed he was afraid of the cemetary.

My friend Mike Pitts called around 5:00 p.m. and asked if I had been yet. I was glad he called as even I find it sad to go alone.

This picture is of World War Two graves. These were all residents of Middletown who died in the armed services during the war.

This is one of my favorite parts of Woodside Cemetary. There are 8 rows of 20 graves here. Including a sailor who died during the final days of the war on the USS Indianapolis.

Blue Flowers In Bloom

It’s nice to see that each spring, despite our total neglect of all things green, that we are still blessed with such pretty sights as these unknown tall blue flowers. This shot is from the front walk at our house on Creekview Drive in Middletown, Ohio in the spring of 2008.

Middletown Ohio - Big Snow March 2008

The biggest winter storm of 2008 did not come in until late March. The storm bought with it 24 hours of non stop snow. This picture was taken from my front pourch on Creekview Drive. The two steps below are totally covered with what was by this time about 10 inches of snow with drifts going several feet high.

In 2009 Middletown Ohio had it's first big snow storm in January.
Below you will find two links to photos I took on my drive to work on Jan 27 & 28, 2009.

The dogwood trees in bloom. Late April 2008

Mr. Ledford’s dogwood trees blooming on Creekview Drive in Middletown Ohio in late April of 2008. Though there is a dogwood tree in my yard this shot looked a lot better as if you notice there is another dogwood tree in the background. So two pretty trees in one shot!

There is another tree about to bloom in my yard. It’s looking purple so far. I’ll try to figure out what that is and get a picture of that one next.
