We need to continue to share with our young people the meaning of this day lest it become nothing more than a long holiday weekend filled with beer and hot dogs.

Our fallen warriors deserve so much more.

Hi Friend!! I love the GWB quote and the G. Harvey paintings. Can you believe that we have friends who have a real G. Harvey painting? Man!

Hope you are having a wonderful Memorial weekend.

Good morning BJ, I love the flag paintings by Harvey. We are busy getting packed to leave tomorrow from MO. to the Colorado mountains. I do hope we will find some service there.
Thank you for your faithful visits. Good luck with enlarging your photos. Beverly taught me how to do this. She is so smart. You know she is my tech rep!!! Smiling.

Happy Memorial Day to you and your family.
