Seems the day has dawned. Started the fire this morning, it was cold last night. I've made the coffee, I've had my cereal, I'm at the keyboard. The clouds are still lingering, but the prevailing winds seem to be moving them east. That means the low pressure system that spawned all this weather is moving east. We are supposed to warm up next week, I'll believe it when I feel it.
By the way, say a prayer for the soldiers placed in harms way by politicians who never were willing to serve themselves. It's Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day, a day to honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. While I may not make it to Arlington West, I will remember the many who died.
Let us not forget those scarred and maimed by the war. Those who reside in the Veterans Administration facilities and those who just live on the street, the walking wounded, the men who are tormented by what they did, what they saw, and the vision of what war really is. Remember them. BTW, don't fall for the man with a sign begging along the streets and highways who says he is a vet. The best you can do for him is direct him to the nearest veterans facility, don't give him money to support his habit, be it alcohol or drugs.
