I hope everyone had a safe memorial day weekend. I live far away from my family now but when I was young my grandfather, who served in World War 1, traditionally would ask to be driven to the cemetary so he could tidy up the graves of his friends and loved ones. He was born in the late 1800's and was in his late teens/early twenties during the war. We had to get dressed up in our Sunday best and we quietly raked and weeded and cleaned grave sites, some of the people had names I could recognize but most were dead years and years before I was born. I called my parents yesterday and guess where they were? Yup. Tidying up the graves. I wore the straw hat that my Grandpa always wore on Sundays and special occasions, I remembered him and everyone else that has proudly served our country, he died when I was 26 he was 95.
On a different note we had tons of beef.
And hammock relaxation.
