Happy Memorial Day. And a great poem to remind you of why we will always have memorial days.

Thank you Patti for sharing that. I wish you a Happy Memorial Day too.

My sister just retired from the military after 25 years in the Air Force. I'm so thankful she made it through a quarter of a century in uniform; I know other families have not been so fortunate--in the current wars and in ones previous. Thank you for remembering them and their fallen ones this Memorial Day.

Please extend my thanks to her for such a noble career. Yeah. my brother-in-law was ruined by Vietnam. Never recovered an died at 29.

Unfortunately, someone sent me a political cartoon, obviously with a Republican slant, that tried to make political hay out of the day by suggesting that Democrats only care about veterans today. It really created a distaste in my mouth this morning.

Hope you and Phil have a good day, Patti, in spite of that bitter memory.
