Happy Memorial Day! 2020

Happy Memorial Day!

Hopefully you are social distancing staying your ass at home, barbecuing by yourself or those who live with you. And you are not out and about exposing yourself to corona or exposing others to the virus.

This year holidays are weird due to the virus, but we are still Americans, still have the majority of our rights, and can celebrate those who served to keep those rights alive, but with social distancing as responsible individuals.

So happy memorial day be responsible stay home don’t blow your fingers off with firecrackers and stay safe… At home.

 

Here are some links discussing Memorial Day and what it really is about; ie: not about you drinking all day and partying like a fool:

Happy Veteran’s Day Oak Park, IL

Happy Veteran’s Day people!

I hope to see those flags out there and all around in Oak Park, Il but these are some ignorant mofos and that’s why I am making sure the vets know someone is thanking them!

The reason it is celebrated today is to mark the signing of the armistice of World War One, a “period of silence lasting two minutes may be held at 11am..” it was ordered by President Ford in 1978 to officially recognize November 11 as the day to recognize America’s veterans on this day.
