We just got done attending a Memorial Day parade and then a Memorial Day service at a local cemetery. It was a nice morning. Warm, and getting warmer. We are currently having lunch at McDonald's. I know that doesn't sound very exciting to most people, but I'm not a big fan of excitement, unless it involves great sums of free money, literary awards/publications, or a surprise buyer for my house. I'll take that excitement.
Not too much else on the agenda for today. A barbecue. Watermelon and bratwurst. We may watch America's Got Talent tonight. I'm kinda liking Howard Stern as a judge. I thought I was going to absolutely hate him, but he's funny and, more importantly, inoffensive. And he likes weird talents. (He sent a contestant to Vegas whose claim to fame was getting kicked, punched, and hit in the balls over and over and over and over. It hurt me to watch.)
I want again to wish all veterans and their families a happy Memorial Day. I salute all men and women who have put their lives on the line to protect world justice, freedom, and peace.
Saint Marty doffs his halo to you.
