Memorial Day

Have a lovely holiday, friends.
And don't forget to remember those
who died protecting our freedoms!

  1. Our holiday was last week
    So work tomorrow I seek
    Don't really want to go
    Would rather rhyme at my show
    But have a good day off
    Now I'll leave before I have a fit and scoff

  2. Well, Pat you usually do a pretty good job of mixing work
    and the lurk!

    It's not really a day off for me
    as my job description is the same as can be
    But I'll have 5 men at home
    so it should be fun and I'll try not to moan.
    lol...

  4. Enjoy this Memorial Day ~ when I was young, we called it Decoration Day. I played the flute in my grade school band ... we had an annual parade, no matter the weather (we prayed it wouldn't be scorching hot.) Those were special days and beautiful memories of a simpler time.
    Enjoy those five guys of yours!

  5. Helen ~ our little village still has a parade! And it's supposed to be 92 degrees!

  6. What a beautiful tribute to Memorial Day. I love that photo. A mom never has a day off, but who wants one. Moms make the world go around.
