Happy Memorial Day Again
#1
This national day of remembrance is coming faster every year. I raced back to the iPad to post this thread. Some of you can guess why.  Big Grin And I hope you had a great holiday.

I forgot it was memorial day.
Like they say, as you get old, your memorial is the second thing to go.

Look at the bright side. You can read the same book or watch the same movie over and over and over...     Big Grin

The scolding we got in previous years for not acknowledging the holiday in the proper way. Come on you know.  Smiling

We were subject to criticism for improper behavior on both days.

He's still alive? I figured he would have spontaneously combusted by now.

Yes there were a few on facebook explaining why Memorial day was supposed to be solemn. How you are not supposed to say happy memorial day.
I saw a meme saying it's not for BBQ's.

I say bullshit. I remember this as being a three day HOLIDAY weekend that you deserve because you work your ass off.
That extra day meant I could go to the coast with my boat.
When you think about it how is memorial day for the fallen? They are dead. They don't know what freaking day it is.
It's not for the fallen it's for the living to remember the fallen. I made five parade  floats like these and I say we can 
celebrate memorial day any way we want

We get to remember this day any way we want. Is this a great country, or what!

But maybe we should consider a least a solemn moment remembering the blood left on the ground of all too many foreign lands.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

I saw the FB posts about it not being about getting a day off from work or going to a damn BBQ... 
My hubby worked!  A short day (11-6), but he worked!
And... we went to a damn BBQ!  And we enjoyed it!
It was a beautiful day... spent eating, drinking and laughing with friends.

For cletus, Wonky, and Willie. I firmly believe you agree with the link.

Tvguy is not far behind, and many others here aren't even worth the mentioning of their names.

I would not desecrate Memorial Day by posting this yesterday. So for today, and the future, Fuck You All.

That really hurts. The only thing worse than be mentioned, is not being mentioned. Mad

Well, I won't take it personal. Big Grin

Memorial day could be a bit more upbeat, by displaying the dead enemy graves too.
 Remembrance for those we killed in war, as well.

My husband was drafted in 1970. How about you Hugo?  He said 'Fuck you', let's see your DD 214 papers.  Oh, thank you for your service. Blink

So, you post a story about some Muslims that made remarks you don't like and tie Wonk, Willie and me to it. No one here has slandered the troops. 

You have repeatedly accused many of us of not honoring the troops properly. It is what you do. But you are not the super patriot you think you are. You are a miserable malcontent.
