Fun Monday



The wonderful Church Lady is the hostess this week for our Fun Monday. Her assignment:  Since here in the states we are observing Memorial Day, the assignment is to post a photo of something patriotic or post a photo honoring a veteran. WOOO HOOO!!


From our founding Fathers to the present, men and women have died fighting for the rights we all take for granted. My Grandfathers and a Step Great Grandfather served our country. My dad was in the Navy, did two tours in Vietnam. My husband was in the Army and was in the Dessert Storm.  I grew up to have respect for our service men and women. Unfortunately not all Americans do show the proper respect.  I don't associate with those kind of  "Americans", because in my book, well, they are not true Americans. Flag burning and spouting off stupid stuff just because you can...oh what ever. LOL

Like all our holidays that are important, have become commercialized. Most people grill out side and drink themselves silly. Not really honoring what Memorial Day is about.  I am not saying everyone is like this. Just seems to me, a lot of people look for an excuse to party and not take into account what something really means. 

I am so happy Church Lady has made this Fun Monday about Memorial Day or something Patriotic.  To show the proper respect and honor for this special day.  

I am off my soap box now. :) 

All gave some, but some gave ALL! 

Just Sayin'

  6. A precious few made the ultimate sacrifice so all of us could enjoy living in a democracy. We must remember and honor them.
