This year's color guard includes two Iraqi War veterans.

Oh, to be this young and energetic!

Four on four volleyball, at my age I'm turning into more of a watcher than a doer.

The band warms up as party goers start to arrive for the afternoon's activities.

More than just friends and party goers, the chick band takes a break.

A mother and daughter enjoy their Memorial Day Weekend along the banks of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River near Mahaffey.

Life just don't get any better than this. It makes my friend Jimmy a happy camper.

After spending more than three weeks watching a pair of downy woodpeckers raise their young, these are some of the last pictures I have before the three chicks finally left the nest. The chick shown in these three pictures was the smallest and the last to leave the nest.
