It is a long weekend here in the USA. (Two in a row for us with dual citizenship, BOL!)
Anypaws, It is Memorial Day Weekend.
We hope it will be a safe one for all, so we can take a moment to remember those who served and gave the ultimate price for the freedoms we enjoy. Never take them for granted, they come at a high price...that of other's lives.
It is a serious holiday...so we never will say 'Happy' Memorial Day , we don't think that fits too well. At least that is what petcretary tells us.
|Fort Custer National Cemetery in Augusta. May 27, 2023 This is a short drive from where we live. It is an awe inspiring place to visit even on 'ordinary days'.|
If you do have a chance, go to a Memorial Day service at a national cemetery or the war memorial in your town or city...it is moving and a good reminder of what the price freedom truly is.
There is a wall in one of the halls at the nursing home where petcretary works that has large pictures of current/former residents who have served their country. Its a nice way to honor them all. She will stop by there Monday, as she has to work this holiday...its her turn.
Here are our patriotic selfies to mark the day.
|Sheesh, she cut off my ears...and she didn't even take another to replace this one...BOL!|
|Memorial Day is quite a serious day...|
|But I am happy I can live in freedom with my family.|
|I was thinking about Memorial Day...so I kind of forgot to look a the camera...|
|There, This one will do!|
|Here is my official patriotic Portrait. (aka Selfie)|
