    1. I have read it as well Nylon12. It is indeed a solid post.

      Sunny and humid here today. A good day to stay inside and contemplate.

  2. Very nice post TB ☺ It's weird for me to say Happy Memorial Day because it's not that happy a day is it?

    1. Thank you Rain - Although Sarge gets all the credit; I just borrowed it.

      It is odd. I think here people often say "Happy Memorial Day Weekend" to cover the fact it is a three day weekend without specifically wishing a Happy Memorial Day.

    Let me recommend a book to you and your followers here:

    It's an emotional read, but meaningful and memorable. -Kelly
