Mum did make it to dawn service for ANZAC Day. The alarm went off at 4am and it only took 2 call outs to get Mr Bud out of bed, and they left the house at 4:30am. They did get a good spot, but there was no view for mum to took photos, as she is a shortie, but she could see this screen as everything was televised. Bud is tall, so he could see over the crowd in front of them. 40,000 people turned up, so space was at a premium. It was very moving.
They got home after 8am, and mum made toasted bagels with pastrami and tomatoes. A little nap was had and then mum took the nephew out for an easy dinner and a movie X and Y, then they walked home back via the memorial park. It was packed as tonight was the last night of the visual show. It is a pity that it can't be shown every night, but we are sure that there is a huge cost with having it playing.
So tonight we are thinking about all those that have served, and who are buried far from home.
