A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Road Trip subsection)

We're heading back to the Black hills from Arizona. I love road trips. Probably a result of having done so many in my childhood and travels while in the service. Always remember staying at "Mom and Pop" establishments on those family vacations. Hard to find them any longer.
Anyway, here's The Moonlight Motor Inn, written by John Malcom Penn and done by a group from Big Fork, Montana.

Geography Div (Memorial Day subsection)

Today will always be Memorial Day for me. Seems appropriate to post a rendition of one of our nation's most hallowed places. When it comes down to serving our country, this is what it comes down to. There may be a National Cemetery near wherever you live that isn't quite so famous, but today, it might deserve a visit to say thank you to those resting there.
