Happy Memorial Day

I’m out back, by the grilling, turning hamburgers, corn, and whatever else can be grilled. Can you smell it? Yum!

I’m taking the day to honor our soldiers. Without their sacrifice, where would we be?

    • True, Mustang. I’m a bit fearful of that. Luckily my kids were raised to never forget. I watch Watters World on O’Reilly as he asks citizens questions like ‘how many Senators’ and ‘Who fought in the Civil War’. It’s painful to hear the answers.


  1. Happy Memorial Day, Jacqui, and please pass me some grilled corn. Buttered, please :). Jokes aside…we need to keep in our hearts those who gave their lives for us, and pray that no more lives are lost in war, ever.
