From the Sublime to the Ridiculous
The Sublime: Memorial Day
I had a most distinguished visitor yesterday, one Abraham Lincoln, whose site I would like to share with you. His posts for yesterday and today are informative and thought-provoking, and a worthwhile way to spend a moment on this holiday.
Abraham describes how "Decoration Day" has morphed into "Memorial Day" as we now know it. Or as many school children don't seem to know it at all, other than as a day off with cook-outs. In the south where I went to high school, they do still have "Decoration" days. Abraham's posts made me wonder if other areas of the country continue this tradition. Did your family ever participate in "the Decoration," as mine did? Read Abraham, he describes it much better than I can.
The Ridiculous (aka The Typical, for This Blog): An Update
The drama from last weekend has been fully resolved. Katy Caverna Barzedor (aka "Bucky Crocker") posted girly pix of herself over the weekend. She also complied with that part of her punishment that required her to send both SierraBella and I, photographs of herself in her famous chaps. I would say, "it ain't pretty," but I'd be lying to you, and I try not to do that. Oh, and today is Bucky's 40th birthday! Go wish her some wishes!
In the denouement of the contest scandal, SierraBella has offered me my choice of the most picturesque display of Rice-A-Roni ever assembled:
I wouldn't mind grocery shopping if my store had displays like this!
And One More Moment of Sublime:
LG picked me this bouquet from our backyard. A sweet little girl and pretty flowers right outside my door. How blessed am I?
I hope you're enjoying some meaningful moments today, too.
