Of Cookouts

What was yesterday?

I intended to post a little something about remembering, thinking that Memorial Day was about honoring the dead. It turns out Memorial Day began as a national day of remembrance for fallen soldiers.

It felt awkward to write about remembrance when I haven't lost anyone to war.

My grandfather was a navigator in World War II and survived to marry one of the most beautiful women I've known and to produce all of us. My great uncle earned a Purple Heart from service in the Korean War. There are others.

We went to a cookout because we had a day off work. Which makes me wonder: what did you do for Memorial Day?

I had a nice BBQ with a few silver and one gold (friends, that is). Good times had by all.

BBQ with 4 families and five babies, four of whom I babysit. Good food, good company.

I sat around, feeling lost because I wasn't at work. Finally I gave up and went to work.
