Happy Decoration Day!


Well that's what it used to be called. Today it's known as Memorial Day and we celebrate it on the last Monday of May. Really "celebrate" is a strange word because the day is meant to remember fallen military personnel. A time to stop and think of men and women who have died while in military service to the US.

It's really a somber celebration - but it also marks the start of the summer vacation season!!! With BBQs and picnics - I can only hope the weather will cooperate here in the PacNW.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and maybe stop for a moment to remember. . .

Happy Memorial Day, Kim, albeit a bit late. Blogger has been acting all wonky on me.
