Forecast for tonight is alcohol, low standards and poor decisions.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I'm getting so old, I forget what I've said, but it was pointed out to me that Memorial Day is a day we should celebrate, but remember the solemness about it.  Instead of wishing somebody a "happy" Memorial Day, try saying "have a thankful Memorial Day."

It is a day that we truly receive the blessing that somebody else gave us, and it was more than a wrapped present, it was all they had.

Totally agree.  It seems that many folks confuse Memorial Day and Veterans Day.  This is for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we don't have to.  A solemn day.

Yes.  Memorial Day is for those who died in service.  Veterans Day is for those who served.

I remember your sacrifice and salute you for it. Without you I could not be where I am.

R.I.P. for those that have past and  :thumbup: :beer: for those that are still with us.

Beer has food value, but food has no beer value.

In these post-election days of "unprecedented divisiveness" within America, it seems a good time to remember that once-upon-a-time we killed 1.6% of our nation's population fighting each other.

To those who sacrificed themselves in terrible places, near and far, my undying gratitude.
To those who knew and loved them, my deepest sympathy.
