Wow, this thread has been around for a while! I have the privilege of taking care of EDelMar's cat Olive over the holiday weekend. That's in addition to my regular charges and a bunch of newly planted flowers!

Good luck with Olive!!!

I'm hoping to leave work early on Friday, and I also took Tuesday and Wednesday off, so I'll have a 5 day weekend.

:)

Hello Sonja.

Here in the US, Memorial Day is mainly (and supposed to be) about remembering members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives while in service.   There will most likely be numerous TV shows and movies that have war themes getting rerun.

Also, most towns have a parade.

I'm sure you'll see many posts on FB from your US friends about Memorial Day.


However, it's also 'morphed' into weekend that is referred to as the "unofficial" start of summer, and many people host BBQs, or drive to the coast, to make their first trips to the beaches and boardwalks.

When I was in elementary school, a local veterans' organization, I forget which one, used to give us artificial poppies for Memorial Day. (We got little flag pins for Flag Day, June 14.)

My red poppies are actually blooming now! How considerate of them! I don't have many plans this year. Family is all scattered to the winds. Son is in Hawaii on his honeymoon, daughter is preoccupied with a week-old baby, ex-husband is in Boulder with his new girlfriend. So it's just me, my cat, and the chickens. I'm happy with that! I'll probably drop by to see friends I've been neglecting.

I'm supposed to be going to a BBQ on Friday afternoon, but the weather this whole weekend is spotty at best.  We'll see if it goes on as planned.

I hope it does, I volunteered to bring an antiposto salad, and I got everything I need for it on Friday.
