Memorial Day 2017

Most of us will be spending today with family and friends, barbecuing, drinking, and visiting. Although we see Memorial Day as the start of summer, take a moment today to remember the many soldiers, men, women, and dogs who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

It’s because of them, we live this good life.

Over the weekend, we had back to back shindigs with friends. Today, we work. If the weather complies, we’ll be burning brush and continue cleaning out Greg’s shop.

We had a wonderful time with our friends over the weekend. Good food. Good company. When you have friends, you have all you need.

How will you be spending today? BBQs, resting, working?

    It will be a day of rest for me and Chipmunk. I hope you and Greg meet your goals for today.
    Thoughts and prayers to the men and women and their families who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

  2. Good to take the time to remember those who gave their all for our freedom. I had to work today but hubby had the day off and got some things done that needed to be done. We barbecued hamburgers at the end of the day along with pasta salad and baked beans and then took a dip in the pool, first time for the season. It was 84 degrees with the water temperature and 100 degrees for the outside temperature. Felt cool, but refreshing 🙂
