Good Afternoon Gang,

Happy Sober Sunday - we had a good family time last night. Now listening to the race and playing on the computer. Race should be over in about an hour then we will clean up and head to church.

TM - as a veteran you would be particularly impressed with the pre-race activities at the track and around town before the race as well.

It is so sunny here today ,we just came back from Brooklyn and tomorrow ,weather permitting will be the annual Memorial Day Parade and town barbecue .

In my area for a reason I am not sure ,veterans from every war from WWII onward are honored at a public ceremony the last saturday in June .
Approximately 10,000 people attend ever year . They have live music ,usually by a well known singer or group .There are fireworks and food .
The only negative is that once everyone parks their cars nobody is allowed to leave until everything ends and there is only one exit .

Hi gang

I just got home from Foxwoods and we had a good time. We had a nice dinner and I came out 100 dollars ahead.

Tomorrow we will just relax and visit my mom.

Good morning Gang

Happy Memorial Day.

Before I was retired I allways loved this Holiday as a great long weekend during nice weather.

Now I just take time to remember those who gave their all for our Country.

Stay safe and enjoy the day.

Smoking in open spaces can't be much of a health issue.

I stopped smoking on june 3rd. of 1983. I would not want to be a smoker at today's prices.

Good Morning Gang,

I hadn't heard smoking had been banned in all of NY. Will have to check with the DS. Having someone smoke next to you can be annoying (if you are a non-smoker) but I don't unless they are literally blowing smoke in your face I can't imagine there is much harm.

Here in Indianapolis we have a smoking ban in restaurants and most workplaces. Bars keep getting exceptions. It always takes me be surprise to walk into restaurants elsewhere and encounter smoking.

I'm not effected by the New York ban. However, I won't be surprised to see California inact a similar law. Smoke doesn't bother me much, so I don't see the need for this law. In California you can't smoke in bars, restaurants and workplaces. When I cut hair a guy attempted to smoke while I was cutting his hair. He asked me why he had to put it out. I looked him in the eye and said because the 100% nylon haircutting cape you are wearing is highly flammable and I don't want to have to put you out when you catch on fire. He laughed and put out the cigarette. He also told me that was a good reason.

Kat - you didn't want to do the hair spray as flame thrower trick?

Henry, I read about your situation about not getting the dining time you wanted on your cruise.
If your TA mentions that you are a senior citizen and a repeat cruiser on Hal it might help.

I pretty much have to eat at the same time every night myself.
