    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Remember that Memorial day is not solely to remember those fallen in service for our country, but those fallen in service to the people of this country. 
    First Responders. Fire. Police, etc.

    And for remembering those peope in our lives who've made a difference in our lives.

    All these Marines were killed in action. Godwin, Jolly, Steadman, and Smitty.Two a few days after I took this photo and two eight months later. I rolled them up in their ponchos . So we are the sum of our parts. Memorial Day for me is a day to honor and remember.

    I will be on the porch again having a drink with those who can't be here. It won't be a celebration, it will be remembering.

    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    Bumping this to say Thank You to all who gave all in service to our country.
    To those who served with those brave souls, may your memories of the friends you lost, and the hardships you endured together in service, be ever less painful with each passing Memorial Day.

    God Bless them, and you.

    I know many of you don't do Facebook, but during the year, at every holiday like Mother's or Father's Day, Christmas and Easter, every Tom **** & Harry feels the need to remember something about someone or post what the "true meaning" of Christmas and Easter is. I may be a curmudgeon (well, maybe not may be) but it's nauseating. The same thing happens at Memorial Day, but strangely enough, I don't mind because it helps to realign my thinking about where I live and what it took to keep us free.

    If it weren't for men willing to kill and also die, there would be no America. Thanks to all our veterans for the freedoms we enjoy.
