MAY 25, 20 .. A PAUSE ON MEMORIAL DAY TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO DIED IN SERVICE

Just when you think that you know something!

As I began to write this Post, I first went looking down my List Of Categories under HOLIDAYS for the proper subtitle (Memorial Day). I could not find Memorial Day.

I then looked back into past years for Posts written on the last Monday in May (MAY 29, 12 / MAY 25, 15 / MAY 29th and 30th, 2017 / MAY  28, 18) and found no category under HOLIDAYS titled Memorial Day.

So I added Memorial Day as a category under HOLIDAYS.

I went to Wikipedia and did a little research about Memorial Day and learned that Memorial Day honors those who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

In the four previous years (MAY 29, 12 / MAY 25, 15 / MAY 29th and 30th, 2017 / MAY  28, 18) that I’ve done a Memorial Day Post, I (incorrectly) stated that Memorial Day honors those who have served.

I had originally titled this Post : 

MAY 25, 20 .. A PAUSE ON MEMORIAL DAY TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO SERVED

Now I have the above title correct.

I think, I hope, that the very least we can do on Memorial Day is to:

PAUSE TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO DIED IN SERVICE

Say a Prayer of Thanks to them.

It has been touching to see on Televison some of the acts of kindness shown at various Military Cemeteries as volunteers have placed flags and crosses by the graves of those who died in service.

We Salute And We Honor You All !

MAY 24, 20 .. PATTI LOVES HER FLOWERS .. PART 4

We ended Part 3 with the below photo along with several Rhetorical Questions.

In the above photo, you can see several more planters that are hoping-against-hope that they-too will have fresh flowers placed into them.

Will they?

Does The Shadow Know?

Don’t-touch-this-dial and you will see if Part 4 comes to life here on dot.net.

MAY 24, 20 .. PATTI LOVES HER FLOWERS .. PART 4

Yes indeed, at least several of the currently empty planters shown above are going to join the others who are now fully planted with their Summer 2020 Flowers.

This afternoon out-and-off we two went to our local Home Depot Store so that Patti could shop for some more flowers.

Patti carefully selecting her flower treasures at Home Depot.

Happiness is Patti heading home with her flower treasures.

Here they are out on our condo living room porch. 

Tonight they will overnight out-of-doors. Tomorrow there will be a Part 5!

So stay-tuned for Part 5.
