Enjoy Memorial Day...I'll be in the sewing room cutting up fabric and stitching it back together.

And please don't forget what today is really all about:
Memorial Day is an occasion for remembering those who died while serving their country in the United States armed forces. It’s not to be confused with Veteran’s Day, an annual holiday in November that honors everyone who served in the U.S. military. Memorial Day was first observed in 1868, when it was called Decoration Day, a day set aside to honor the 600,000 U.S. citizens who died in the Civil War.
We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. ~Francis A. Walker
