Memorial Day 2024


          While many view Memorial Day as the unofficial start of summer, a day to cookout and celebrate, sometimes see fireworks, it is actually a solemn day. It is a day to remember and mourn those who served in the United States Military.

          Many of my ancestors served in the military, with two living ones left - my brother and my uncle. We are a military family going all the way back to the American Revolution. I think I had a relative serve in every conflict. To my knowledge, thankfully all of them made it home.

          Not a lot of celebrating going on over here today. Not because of the holiday, but because we are boring LOL. Biggest thing we have today is my son's eye appointment for new glasses this afternoon. Too hot for much else outside. Weather says it will be 98 degrees, who knows what heat index will get to. Knowing my neighbors, there will probably be fireworks going off later and lots of music. My poor animals will be very unhappy. Not even grilling today, I plan on making some chicken soup LOL. See, boring!!! On a great note, I woke up pain free!!!!
