Today is Memorial Day... And although I personally do not know anyone who has not come home after defending our country we are paying our respects today to someone from our community. Last week we lost a friendly face, Fr. Mario Galindo in a tragic accident. A service will be held today to remember him. We will, of course, will never forget those who did fight and didn't make it. This day is truly for you!
I know a lot of families get offended because they think we have forgotten, but how can we, we wouldn't live in this country as free men and women if it wasn't for them. They may think it's just about the BBQ. But I know if someone in our family was in the military and didn't make it they would want us to have a BBQ in memory of them. Really! My dad loved hamburgers and even though he wasn't a veteran, he sure did love his beef! So speaking of beef....
This week is about using what we got! Last week and even last night I couldn't resist buying some reduced items from the meat/seafood department so those will be first to go this week! I even bought some strawberries (organic) on Friday and have been putting them in cereal and ice cream all week, I think I may have to compost the few that are left.
