Memorial Day Random-osity

For Random-osity, bloggers post something Good, Random, and Fun
The Good: Soldiers from the American Revolution are depicted in these murals in the Culpeper Museum.

Monday Murals.
The Random: A memorial to Warren County men lost in the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Next to the large plaque are plaques honoring two Marines awarded the Medal of Honor: Cpl. Larry E. Smedley and 1st Lt. Lesley L. Fox.

The monument is on the grounds of the courthouse in Front Royal.

The Fun: I used Photo Collage to make the combined image of pretty roses that were next to the monument.

Mosaic Monday.

"Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing? 
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?"

Read the lyrics by Pete Seeger and Joe Hickerson.


  1. Linda - lovely post for Memorial Day. In your collage, I love the photo of the roses in the foreground with the tower in the background. Super! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  2. ...occasionally I find Revolutionary War Veteran grave in this area, but mostly Civil War and War Of 1812. I hope that you had a nice weekend.

  3. Hello, love the murals. Beautiful roses. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  4. Lovely roses and great murals. Thanks for contributing Linda.

  5. What neat mosaics! Have a wonderful week!

  6. I can enjoy a mosaic with just 3 photos...otherwise they usually are too busy for my taste. I agree with Angie...roses with a tower in background are good combo. Glad to see the murals.

  7. not sure what the shoes are called, i have always found them really neat ...with all those buttons. i enjoy buttons. ( ;

  8. Beautiful flower mosaic. Interesting murals too.

  9. That is a nice memorial.

    All the best Jan
