Unless it's raining, we'll have our flag flying out front on this trusty big tree
Pretty flower pic - just cuz
This wee one, Dakota, actually turns 3 today. I do not have a current picture. Maybe we'll see her before high school graduation - ha! Happy Birthday, Dakota.
And this is from the USS Alabama (circa WWII), now a museum, in Mobile Alabama.
On Memorial Day, we remember those who fought and lost their lives for their country.
Monday should be a huge day of reflection - on the past and on our current situation.
Who are we as Americans? What the heck are we doing as Americans?
Today should be a bit of a turning point for 2020 America - we truly should attempt to be better people, leaders for the world, and re-think who we are, who we want to be, and how we want to be seen. We should dig deep into our souls and think about how we want to be represented as America.
That all sounds so grand as I type it. Meanwhile, I'll float in the pool, eat a hot dog, and be a very lazy American. I need some gumption, some spirit, some mojo....
All the best for Memorial Day. Stay safe my friends.
