Memorial Day + Celebrating the Red, White and Blue

Memorial Day commemorates all men and women who have died in military service for the U.S. defending our democracy and freedom.


A day set aside to honor those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

It’s shaping up to be a very wet Memorial Day here.

I may be able to do able do a little gardening between showers today, but it will be too wet for much outdoor activity or boating.

Gracie says it’s shaping up to be a lazy day but she wouldn’t object to a few treats. . .

    Happy Memorial Day Mary! We won’t be boating either, but have lucked out and got a beautiful weekend with only a few showers this afternoon…big relief 😅 I’m with Gracie, a lazy day with a few treats sounds perfect!

    It’s wet and gloomy in Philly too Mary… I’m hoping to not be too lazy and straighten up the craft room, but we’ll see how that plays out:@) Enjoy your day and give all the pups a goody for me!

    Those frozen treats look very tasty and refreshing for us too, especially with this crazy heat and humidity we are experiencing now. We blasted into summer like a heat furnace on full thrust. I can only be out in temps in the 70’s to mid 80’s, anything higher requires me to be in water, lol! If these temps are any indication of what our summer will be, I’ll be either in my neighnor’s pool or at the beach a lot! 😁🏖 Happy Memorial Day and thanks to all who have served and those still serving!♥️🇺🇸

    Great round up of patriotic posts. Love the queen anne’s lace in the basket with the flags. Hope the sun will come out for a little while for you today. Actually at the moment it is peaking out for us. Hope it lasts a few hours. Supposed to rain a lot with wind later today. Then thunderstorms forecast all week.
