    Memorial Day - How Ya Gonna Spend it?

    For us, it will most certainly be a time of Memorial - we will raise the flag in the morning, then lower it til half staff til noon, then raise it high, and contemplate those who have given all.

    THEN, we'll have a family picnic by the pool - fajitas, hot dogs, burgers, and whatever. This year, it will be limited to family, due to the concern over Covid, but in the past, it's been a much bigger event.

    We don't have Memorial Day. We have Victoria Day, which was last weekend, and usually we celebrate it with Kasha for her birthday.

    Not this year.

    As my Jewish friends would say "Next year in Jerusalem!" (OK, maybe not Jerusalem)

    We say similar at Christmas! Next year we will celebrate Jesus' birthday in the New Jerusalem! Or, sometimes we say, at Jesus' house!

    I will be joining a rally in support of our veteran's Home which has been proposed for closing down by our Governor.

    The proposal has been tossed by the Budget board in Sacramento but we gotta make sure it stays dead.
