It was stormy and windy, rainy and cold in Jerusalem, Israel.

while these planes found a time with some blue sky.

A few adventurous families arrived at Gan Sacher, Sacher Park,

prepared with large blue and white plastic hammers and more.

One family came all the way from New Jersey to

help out with a mangal for the

Lone Soldier Center in memory of Michael Levin.

With fewer people in the park this year,

these sellers of foam spray had to use it up themselves.

Dark clouds were not going to keep these girls away,

nor those with the lone soldiers group.

Their Israeli flag was easy to find,

along with lots of good food.

What a little rain?

There was no questionn but to go ahead and celebrate.

The afternoon flyovers added to the fun.

There were tall people with kites,

yom haatzmaut

little people with bubbles and flags,

couple in blue and white

and lots of blue and white.

And if not that was enough,

Nachman truck on streets

these vans going around with music blasting

would stop and share their music and dance.

But then,

just as people were groaning that they ate too much,

and getting around to cleaning up,

a rocket was launched from Gaza landing in southern Israel

and exploded.

 Friday morning in Jerusalem,

the lines in supermarkets are long

and supplies of chicken are short.

They keep trying to kill us.

They fail,

We eat.

Shabbat Shalom.
