I am hoping that you all have a memorable weekend for Memorial Day. As a child my father loaded up all the boys and we went and decorated graves. After that, his school had an all school reunion since it had closed in 1968 with failing population. The town he grew up in has about 80 people now, but was never more than 400. Out family homesteaded in the area in the late 1800's and we have two family cemeteries in the area, one for the Catholics and the other for the Protestants. It has became my tradition to do the same with my fathers passing a few decades ago, but I go earlier to decorate. I spend my weekend cooking with a friend in Kansas City all weekend for the local hospice who had taken care of his wife in her last days. This will be the third year. Last year we fixed seven cases of pork baby back ribs and 7 whole beef briskets. I fixed ribs for over 14 hours one day. His grill is huge and one with wheels like a trailer.
Some of you may celebrate with a religious observance.
I always see peonies in bloom and think how they always were in bloom with the iris this time of year at the cemeteries.
But what else could I be doing, this is a good time of year for fishing.
I will observe it all and be thankful for all the good memories.
