Monday, May 25, 2020 – Memorial Day

Cooler and wet.

Yesterday was hot and humid until the big front blew through later in the day. Finally got the rain in earnest, about 1.32inches according to the gauge. It was 67F when I went to bed.

Didn’t do much all day. Woke up feeling beat up, and with the pressure changes, most of my joints were aching and my hands were like paddles. Some days are just a pain.

Dinner was hot dogs and whatever greens I could find in the fridge. Dessert was the last of the birthday cake.

Today is the day we put aside to remember our dead. Veteran’s Day we celebrate and thank all those who have served, but today is for remembrance of those who gave all…

Light a candle, raise a glass, smokem’ if ya’ got em’, but spend a short while in remembrance.

Absent friends.
