What IS The Proper Greeting On Memorial Day?...

Well, it can't be "Happy Memorial Day"...that sounds a bit trite and contradictory. And "Have a Pleasant Memorial Day" seems sort of...oh, I don't know...vacation-esk. I mean, aren't we SUPPOSED to be remembering the men and women who served and gave their time and lives to protect the freedoms of our country? I "think" it is supposed to be a solemn day of remembering...but like so many things in this country, it seems we've lost sight of the day's true meaning.

At any rate, I certainly wouldn't want to alarm any of you by not posting something in the next 24-48 hours. But, I am going to one of the Puget Sound Islands for a bit of "R & R" for the weekend, so I most likely will not post anything until Monday when I return (I'm sure you are ALL breathing a sigh of relief to know this...not the "alarm" part, but the "I won't be boring you with another mundane post" part! LOL).


So...be safe, be well, be happy, until I return. And have a "Memorial Day" any way you like it...

I hope your weekend is enjoyable. I'm jealous that you'll be enjoying a nice Pacific breeze while I roast in the giant frying pan called Phoenix.

Have a great R&R...you so deserve it! I'll be stayin on my butt couch/bed bound for the next few days since I've opened up some sewn incisions. Yay! Oh, and it's a nice, freezing 58 rainy degree's here right now. Brrr!

None the less, I'm wishing I was out there with you!

(Hey, how can I get my picture in the little box thingy?? lol)

Hey, Happy Memorial Day sounds better than Happy Late Spring Bank Holiday which is what we were celebrating over this side of the pond!

MISS CHRIS:

Yes, all I can do is CRY for you being in that desert! Would it make you suicidal to learn I am going to the BEACH tomorrow??? Just wondering...LOL

SUZY:

For someone who is "staying on their butt", you've certainly been a busy little thing! Oh...and answer your phone when it rings! It could be Ed McMahon calling to say you've won the Publishers ClearingHouse...or it could be me...LOL

FUNKY MANGO:

"Happy Late Spring Bank Holiday"?!?! What the he...???

Well, we DO celebrate stoopid crap here, too...take "Sweethearts Day" for instance. I thought that's what Valentine's Day was for?
