Take a moment today

to reflect this Memorial Day. We don't get too sentimental around here very often but surely everyone of us knows someone who has served in the armed forces or has given their life to preserve what we usually take for granted daily. Motorcycling is among that list. I saved this picture for today. I try to make it to the Woodlawn Cemetery in Winona at least a couple of times a year to pay my respects to Stephen Taylor; he is the only American Revolutionary War soldier buried in the state of Minnesota. Fought in the Battle of Ticonderoga in 1777, Taylor later migrated west and settled in the Money Creek area south of Winona. He died in 1857, according to the grave site. If you ever visit Woodlawn, the grave is near the front entrance and cannot be missed and is surely worth a visit.
