Be safe and careful while in the process of merrymaking. I don't give a shit if you kill your damn self on the road this weekend, but it's the innocent folks you take with you that concerns me. And remember why you have the day off tomorrow.
*I'm sitting here, watching NASCAR, realizing that since I went into the military, this holiday is never cheery for me. It also would have been my mom's 82nd birthday tomorrow. Since it was her birthday, there was always a party here on Memorial Day. Fond memories of my youth. It will be solemn here, as it has been for the last 9 years since mom passed. The Mrs. and I will have a drink for her, and for those who died in the service of the nation she loved so much.
