Memorial Day plans?

Postby Bmat » Mon May 26, 2014 7:35 am

Are you doing anything special on Memorial Day? Whom do you remember on Memorial Day?

I have no plans other than a day off. I remember my dad, who was a WWII vet, and my uncles who were also WWII vets. And other deceased family members.

I took the whole week off. Hopefully, I will be able to take in a few movies and go to Crater of Diamonds State Park and play in the dirt. Meanwhile, king sized chili dogs. :smt106

What movies do you plan to see?

I ended up having to drive to the next town over to buy a new microwave, which I hadn't planned on.

I had fish tacos on the pier and waded in the ocean surf...my first chance to get to the beach since moving to SoCal :)

I always remember my uncle, Pfc. William Catron, I Company, 274th Infantry Regiment, 70th Infantry Division, KIA January 16, 1945, in France.

For the day, we didn't do much. Just relaxed. I started watching The World Wars on History, which was dreadful. Absolutely terrible.

I got a flag that was flown over the U.S. capital building In Washington D.C.
Quite the surprise.
