Default Happy Memorial Day!

Good morning all. We should all take a moment today to observe the memorial of those who died in battle defending our country.

Hope everyone has a good holiday.

Regards,
Thomas

Thomas,
Well said, we should never forget those that died for the freedom of this great country.

Don't forget to fly "Old Glory" this Memorial Day. No matter what your politics are, this country and all those that serve in the military deserve your support.

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! Flag is up and flying and it is a gorgeous day here in SE Wisconsin (usually Memorial Day weekend turns out to be rainy and chilly.)

Good Morning and God Bless America!

I watched the National Concert last night for an hour and a half and don't think there was a dry eye for the whole show. It covered everything, very moving.

Take time to remember and be thankful for those that serve and have served in the various branches of service.

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.

Have a good day everyone.

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.

Happy Memorial Day everyone.

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. :-)

I'm late as usual, but Happy Memorial Day to all CM's south of the border! As Kuki said, we don't "remember" till November, but that's no reason we can't remember every day...
