Memorial Day

My parents called it Decoration Day. It was designed to honor soldiers who died. Later it became a day to honor all of the dead. Find a cemetery to visit this weekend or next. So much can be learned from inscriptions on the markers, especially from the oldest ones.

If it rains this weekend go to the cemeteries. It's more fun when it is gloomy. If the sun shines postpone it, watch a parade, or play hooky. The latter one is where I am leaning.

Have a great weekend, hope for good weather for Waterfest, and I'm goin' fishin'! See ya next week.
