Memorial Day weekend is the start of the summer season here.
People come out and open their summer homes.
There is a parade in town, and a service at the park where a wreath is placed on the monument to all those in the armed forces who have died.
Across the US , it will be a familiar scene..a day to remember..as a blogger who commented yesterday said, it is not just a day off, or a BBQ..sometimes we forget..
This year our friend's son, Major Chris Meyers who served in Iraq as a Marine, will be speaking.
His brother, Michael, served in Iraq too, and they follow in the footsteps of their dad who served in Vietnam.
A Marine family..Semper Fi...and thank you to all who have served our country!
My friend Marigene found me 2 more dinner plates and 4 salad plates to go with the Neiman Marcus dishes I have hunted down. She sent them to me along with some other lovely things I will show on another post...All the way from KS!! Thank you, Marigene!
We had a salad, and roast loin of pork with Hasselback potatoes and applesauce..
Please stop in at Gollum's to see the other Foodie Friday entries..
