Your idea of Memorial Day Weekend consists of....
A Saturday spent at the pool with corn on the cob, roast and potatoes for dinner
followed up with a baseball game cheering on your home team.
And your Sunday starts with baking a home made pie before going to church, having a cookout with the family...
and then spending the day at the lake eating watermelon, getting sun and mosquito bites.
Your husband takes off gigging frogs, (yes, it does happen...) Your wife passes a trailer with the Christmas lights still on....
picks up some "wild" growing Hydrangeas,
and then proceeds to pull over on the side of the road to pick up a Christmas tree. (HA, no joke!)
Your idea of the perfect summer set up
is a front porch complete with rocking chairs, ferns in galvanized tins and an American flag.
May we always remember the sacrifice and be grateful for the men and women that gave their lives for our country and our freedom.
Happy Memorial Day!
And thank you to all of our troops both past and present.
