Good Morning Thomas, Y2C and CMs to follow! It is a beautiful day again here, sun shining, upper 60s to low 70s. Our town is having a parade at 10 this morning which we plan to go to. God bless all the souls that have passed on throughout the years to make this the best country to live in! And God Bless You!

Good morning Cruisemates and Happy Memorial Day. Yes Thomas, let's all take a moment today and remember just what this day is all about. Flag is flying today. Bought a new flagpole last week and plans are to put it up this week and then the flag will fly every day. Installing a light on the outside of the garage to light the flag so it can fly 24/7. Gonna have fun landscaping the area around the pole.
Good Morning cruisemates! Talk of rain here in Calgary today. Not a holiday here, so it's back to work.
To all my American friends... a very happy Memorial Day. Remembrance Day here is in Nov., but we'll take a moment today here as well to remember all your young men who fell protecting our freedom too.
No flags here, but I do remember my father's sacrafice in the Normandy Invasion and the others that gave so much for the general good of the world. I don't fly flags to show my patriotism but I do feel fortunate to have lived in times of relative peace.
We got home to Wisconsin about 2 hours ago. As soon as the car was unpacked, I put my flag up. It's good to take some time to stop and think of those who have died for our freedom and our loved ones who have passed on before us.
We had a great ride up from Florida. Ran into a little rain yesterday, but when we saw the damage from a tornado that must have gone across the highway in ILL. recently we were glad to only be experiencing the rain.
Now it's time to finish the unpacking, do the wash and find a place for all the stuff my daughter moved out of our spare room so that she could move in. She's going to live here for a year and keep the place up for us while we are in FL being snowbirds. :-)
Well we have alway flown a flag-- and it does mean different things to each of us-- even amoungst my family--
Take care make it a special day-- no matter what you do---
Cheers all--- turned out to be a nice day here in CA-- at least my part
