Things that make me smile...Contrary to popular belief it isn't just booze and shoes!!! Traditions make me smile and I love how they warm my heart!!! With Memorial Day Weekend upon us I always give thanks for the men and women past and present that serve our country and have given their lives to and for our freedoms. Now for the smile and tradition part- for many years now, in early May, American Flags adorn the utility poles on Rt.25 from around Brookfield Center to the 4 corners. They are there until after Labor Day making my heart swell and giving me the biggest smile! It is truly the little things-PEACE!!
