Home again

Today is Memorial Day.  It was first enacted to honor Union soldiers fallen in the Civil War.  Formerly known as Decoration Day, it was expanded to include our fallen heroes from all wars, after WWI.  Please say a prayer for them and keep those still serving in your thoughts and prayers as well.

Had a wonderful weekend with LL and the Budd clan.  Waterfalls, music, good food, kids and some much-needed peace.  Even saw a familiar face from 14 years ago.  It was a grand time on the North shore of Lake Superior.  Stopped for fast food on the way home which was a bad move.  LP ended up sick, almost puking.  Both PW and I feel the same.  Oddly enough it was the dog who blew chunks, spewing some pretty foul shit in the mud room.  I managed to not do the same while scooping it up. Guess he had a rough weekend while we were away??

Just now I watched Deadliest Catch where a boat sank, loosing 7 guys.  Kind of knocked me down a peg, reminding me of the choices I've made and a former crew member recently lost at sea.

Still, it's good to be home and we had a weekend to remember.  I'm tired and a bit queasy, but quite happy. Take care, people.

DUDE!! I'm all exhausted today cuz Mona waited until I was dead asleep to start making horking sounds (delayed car sickness, I guess) and I had to get up and let her out. Didn't fall asleep again until almost midnight.

Hope you all feel better soon!!
