Did You Know? - Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Ladies... Grab A Marine!

Time For Pronouncements
Did You Know? - On Memorial Day the flag of the United States is raised briskly to the top of the staff and then solemnly lowered to the half-staff position, where it remains only until noon. It is then raised to full-staff for the remainder of the day.
The half-staff position remembers the more than one million men and women who gave their lives in service of their country. At noon their memory is raised by the living, who resolve not to let their sacrifice be in vain, but to rise up in their stead and continue the fight for liberty and justice for all.

Did You Know? -
Ode is a poem written in 1874 by the English poet Arthur O'Shaughnessy. It is often referred to by its first line We are the music makers.
Wikisource has original text related to this article:
The Ode is the first poem in O'Shaughnessy's collection Music and Moonlight. It has nine stanzas, although it is commonly believed to be only three stanzas long. The opening stanza is:
We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
The phrase "movers and shakers" originates here.
Moving and shaking
Doing our thing
The tables admired our efforts
M&M's don't melt in your hands
"Hey Sis... Wish you were here"
Here they come...
"OK girls... just follow me!"
Normal Dancing Now Begins
Ed hides the centerpiece.... He looks so innocent... NOT!

Obviously discussing polka steps
Simply looking good
Where is everyone??
I'm taking my pie home... Midnight snack you know
"The Herbie Look!"
Lucky is growling at the photographer....
The crowd is thinning out...
Good night and see you in September
