I’m not sure whether it’s appropriate to say Happy Memorial Day, as this is a day in the US when we remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. Actually, I think it is appropriate since I am terribly happy that there are men and women who are willing to risk their lives to defend and protect our freedoms. No matter what your political affiliation, you have to give a shout out to those serving in the military and their families. Because of their bravery, we have the ability to express our opinions and agree or disagree without the fear of punishment.
Today, I’ll be hanging out with my family in Kentucky. When my grandparents were alive, my Grandpa always spend all day getting the coals just right for his secret recipe, so hot it curls your hair, barbecue sauce, perfect when applied to any cut of meat. I can still feel my tongue burning! While no one can exactly recreate his secret sauce, we will give it our best shot with a family barbecue. If you have a super, secret recipe, put it in your will! We lost the BBQ sauce and Thanksgiving dressing recipes with the passing of my grandparents. I think Pa and Granny might be laughing about that one right now. They always did have a strange sense of humor. I hope you are enjoying your day, regardless of whether you are celebrating a holiday or not.
What are your plans for Memorial Day?
