So what is everyone doing for the Memorial Day Holiday? If you are lucky enough to be working, do you plan to slip out early Friday? Is there Memorial Services in your area? How about the great picnic or barbecue?

We can't go anywhere, but we will be making the trip to the cemetary. Afterwards we will be getting together with friends to cook out and have a good time.

My daughter has to work Monday, my son has a scout canoeing trip on Monday, so we are celebrating on SUNDAY with a cook out of beef ribs.

I'll be wearing patriotic shirts both Sunday and Monday.

To all my American Friends and Fellow Vets please have a safe and pleasant Memorial Day but forget not all those who paid, and those who are still paying the ultimate price for the freedom you enjoy. From the Revolution to Afghanistan your Sons and Daughters have stood in Harms Way so that those they Love can enjoy the Fruits of their Sacrifice. REMEMBER.



ALL HONOUR TO THE FALLEN
LEST WE FORGET

A nice Memorial Day song by "Blackmore's Night":

March The Heroes Home

I sing the praise of honored wars of glory and of kings
The bravery of soldiers, The joy that peace can bring
The captains on their way home, The ribbons on their chests
They've packed away the firearms the trumpets lay to rest...
They've taken in the battlefields with one last weary breath
And set their sights on something new while there's still something left
The poets and the dreamers thank the stars above
For leaving hatred in the dust and bringing back the love...

Over land and over sea
March The Heroes Home
For the faithful, for the free
March The Heroes Home
We'll be waiting when you
March The Heroes Home
All the night and day through
March The Heroes Home...


The flowers laughing in the fields boast colors bright and new
A hint of freedom in the air, the chimes are ringing true
They're bringing in the New Year and ringing out the old
Beckoning the springtime though winter winds blow cold...

Over land and over sea
March The Heroes Home
For the faithful, for the free
March The Heroes Home
We'll be waiting when you
March The Heroes Home
All the night and day through
March The Heroes Home...

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." --Sir Winston Churchill

"No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave." --Calvin Coolidge

"Not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions, but there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men." --Pericles

I did some work around my parents' house and grilled up a couple of hot dogs.

May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
