Carolee (David’s wife) sent these photos of my brother David, standing by the enormous elderberry plants.
I’ve been saving them all week to post on his birthday. Thanks for sending the photos Carolee.

My sister Mary sent me these photos she took on her phone in NYC.
She texted the year- 1949. a very good year!
A Chevrolet Ambulance. Looked up definition for the word Chevrolet and found Louis Chevrolet “a Swiss Born American Race Car Driver of French Descent”
I’ve been saving the photos to post for our brother David’s birthday today, also Flag Day. (You might remember how bad I am at sending out a card in time.)
Happy Birthday David. Thinking of you and hoping you have a wonderful day.
Love from your sisters,
Ruth and Mary
My brother’s birthday is today. Flag Day. A legal holiday in Pennsylvania. There will be garbage pick up. A non-holiday holiday. No special holiday meals. I see flags and red, white and blue bunting around town. Some flags up since Memorial Day.
Here are the flags at PNC Park with the city behind!
I remember walking to the Betsy Ross House when our parents lived in Philadelphia, Mark in a stroller. Philadelphia may be the home to the first Flag Day. When I was a kid there was a piano in the classroom and we sang a lot of flag songs.
