Memorial Day Weekend!

It is Memorial Day weekend and I do wish to honor all of the brave men and women who have fought and given their lives for their country. Thank you. My husband is enjoying the weekend marathon of old war movies on AMC.

To me, Memorial Day weekend also meant the unofficial start of summer. Ocean City, New Jersey was open for business and the shoobies were flocking to town. We used to laugh at the Pennsylvanians who clogged the roads trying to capitalize on the three-day weekend. They crowded the boardwalk and bought Budweiser visors to wear with their black socks and sandals.

Now I live in Pennsylvania and I will not go near the shore or anywhere else on Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday we had a very laid back "party" with good friends and good food.

Today I decided to relax. I read an entire book while sitting on the back deck. I haven't done that for a while.

Thanks again the the brave men and women from every country who have allowed me to take an extra day to relax.

Sounds like an idyllic Memorial Day, Neetzy. I hope you wore your black socks and sandals.

WTF. I love you Dive, but you are my only visitor. May retire the negative space.

Don't you dare! I need my Neetzy fix. Where else can I see your beautiful paintings and read your rants?
Our blogs are our last defence against the inanity of Facebook. We must keep them going for our sanity's sake. Though with my memory beginning to go I keep mine going mainly so I can remember what I was doing. Yikes!

Thanks Dive!

I'll keep going if only for you. One of these days I will visit you in Norwich!

I'll be sure and put the kettle on.
