In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. 

Memorial Day is also the "unofficial" start of the Summer!!!  Together with our pals Gracie and Sammy, we are hosting a Memorial Day Cookout!!
If you're here in time for breakfast, please enjoy this bacon and egg casserole!
and some French Toast with tasty mouse sausage!
If you're thirsty, enjoy a cold beverage...
We have lots of great dogs, burgers and chick-hen!
Come join us at the picnic table....
Make sure you wait a bit after you eat, but join us in the pool....the water is FINE!!!
Please stop by Gracie's blog and Sammy's blog.....the party continues there.  Raz and Pete's famous fish fry truck is even at Sammy's!!

Sammy's Blog
Raz, Allie,Ellie, Sammy and Gracie want to let you know how HAPPY we are that you could join us today

The Day is serious, but getting together to remember with food and friends is also good.
