It has been tradition for us to gather with these friends
on Memorial Day. This was Pre-Coronavirus,
before Social Distancing was a part of our lifestyle.
This year was a different holiday, indeed.
We spent most of our weekend working at home.
Hubby worked hard on the yard and planting our flower pots,
while I worked inside on the everyday house chores.
A hearty weekend breakfast of eggs and toast...
my personal favorite is the Over-Easy Egg.
This is one of the Wash Tubs that my mom and I
used on Laundry Day. We salvaged it from the Farmhouse.
The highlight of our Memorial Day was the
Taps Across America event.
Trumpet and Bugle players around the world
came out to their balcony or front porch and
played Taps to honor America’s fallen heroes.
Several of us drove over to their neighborhood
to listen to our friend, Dennis, play his trumpet on the front porch.
He performed with perfection.
Later in the afternoon we gathered at Alan and Kari’s home
for some good food and great conversation...
with the appropriate Social Distance observed.
It was a beautiful evening, so we could be out on the patio,
roasting some marshmallows, making S’Mores.
If you are still in need of a mask for your summer outings,
I have several available in a variety of colors and prints.
Memorial Day is a special holiday to remember
and pay tribute to those that serve and
to their families who have given the intimate sacrifice.
Stay Safe and Well, Everyone.
