Edith Shain, a 90-year-old who says she's the woman being kissed by a sailor in Times Square in one of World War II's most famous photographs, reunited in town with the Navy on Sunday — days before she is to serve as grand marshal of New York City's Veterans Day parade.

I'm watching the parade now through my window at work. What a glorious racket. It always makes me a bit teary to see all the older veterans in their uniforms.

I just ADORE that photo. I still get wistful about it being Armistice Day, even before it was Veteran's Day. Once upon a time, we thought there'd only be one world war.

I wish I was there to see the parade!
