Happy Memorial Day

The clouds and drizzle of the last three days has finally ended in Pittsburgh. It’s still unseasonably cool but this is to be expected since I have the day off.

I’m doing yard work and hamberders. Nothing fancy. The cookout I had originally planned for yesterday was ruined by the “RD has the weekend off let’s ruin it!” weather.

I have past Memorial Day posts on all the solemn things this holiday stands for. Funny how none of the MAGA heads gave us credit for that before. I guess thoughtful essays will always be trumped (pun intended) by the low hanging fruit of affixing a flag to your house.

  2. oops, I did not notice this until after I had posted my Memorial Day items on the cruise thread.
