Memorial Day

Flags unfurled for Memorial Day.
Gabe was hoping to wake at dawn to go fishing with Dad this Memorial Day Monday.  Instead, Marshal got the call at 5:30 AM that he had the second labor and delivery of the weekend waiting for him at the hospital.  He was shaking his head with the prospect of a long day of labor with the first time mom who wasn't even having strong contractions yet.  But by the time he was showered and dressed, lunch made, and breakfast on the table, the hospital nurses were calling him in a panic.  I learned later that this woman had her Memorial Day baby before I was even out of bed this morning.  Marshal came home just after lunch, and Gabe, so excited, got to go fishing with Dad after all.
