Friday Flows into Memorial Weekend

It's Friday and we are amped for Memorial Weekend. Summer temps sizzle already in Texas. No doubt, we have the grocery list ready - hot dogs, burgers, rolls, chips, and don't forget the beer.

Let's also remember. Let's not forget...our fallen soldiers. Reflect on America and fly your flag. A lot of history brought us to this weekend.

The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem - Aaron Kilbourn

Stay safe my friends. Use sunscreen. Enjoy your weekend and reflect

  3. So true freedom isn't free. I am grateful for those that are willing to fight for our country's freedom and then pay the ultimate price in doing so.

    Hope your's is an enjoyable weekend!

  4. Hi Joanne - ours is in November at the time WWI ended ... but it's a good reminder for us to have another reminder now.

    Let us have peace in this world with little fighting talk.

    Have a good weekend - as you say with reflective time ... cheers Hilary

  6. It's important to remember the past, and the sacrifices that were made for us, whatever time of year it is.

    Have a good weekend and enjoy the hot dogs and beer.

  7. Absolutely. Well said!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend. By the way, we went to the movies on Tuesday and saw "Money Monster." Mike was less than enthusiastic about my choice at first, but we both thoroughly enjoyed it. (AND the fact that it was only an hour and a half long... !)
