    Exercise walk this Friday will be routed to take in a couple of cemeteries that have CWGC burials within.
    Personal choice, but more appropriate for me than any pomp and circumstance. I'm eternally grateful to all those folks in the ground all over the world that didn't beat the clock, and paying my respects to them, while still able, will always be an essential journey.

    Kind regards, have a good one folks, always,
