Peter and I had a low-key pleasant day yesterday. We watched Caroline’s first chorus concert. She was so proud that she got a line which she delivered clearly into a microphone. We had lunch at a place that we really like and everyone knows us. We went to our bowling league. We enjoyed each other’s company. It was nice.
This weekend the summer season starts including the summer schedule at many businesses in New York who do half days on Friday and people then travel to their summer residences. That means a lot more people in town starting this week and in the local stores. Good for business but not so great for trying to get things done efficiently.
Memorial day may have changed into the beginning of summer and lots of sales all over the country but I think we need to remember the original reason which is to honor our military personal who have died for their country. Yeah, I know kind of a downer but I think it is important to honor these people who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
I am grateful to those who did make the ultimate sacrifice so I can write the words in a country that allows me to do so.
