If I were by myself, I would do the same thing. Always something to clean or unclutter.

We don't enjoy large crowds. We  are nature lovers and spend most of our time outdoors.

I will be working at a retail store in a tourist town. Maybe I'll see some of you there!

I have nowhere to go unless I go alone and hate that.  So I am going to stay home and declutter my spare room some more.  Giving away loads of stuff. I will eat whatever I have on hand.   I did work holidays until last September, but now have them off.  And I never really did anything.  If I were younger, I would go it alone.

In years past, I was a casual observer of this holiday. Not indifferent, but not participatory. This has changed in the past three years. Now married to a retired Navy man (31 years service), we are both very active in the Local VFW 1881, Cheyenne, WY. This post will be hosting a big cook-out, with any verteran in the area invited to attend. We expect 200 minimum. Before the cookout there will be a service at the Memorial Cemetary. Flags will placed at the graves of the Fallen....speeches will be made and wreathes placed. Our dead will be remembered and the living celebrated.

Always good to reach out to the veteran and remember them all.

Tell us how you spend the Memorial Day weekend.  Do you have a tradition?  Or just relax?
