The weekend is starting to wind down.  We had a great time with some successes and some not so successes.  Mostly successes.

Memorial Day Flags

We started with an unexpected guest on Friday and my last trip to the orthopedist.  My arm is healing, albeit slowly.  He’s happy with the progress, so I am too.  I don’t have to worry about operations, shots into my spine, or anything drastic like.  At least for now.  It’s always a possibility for the future.  But right now, my arm is back to 90%, and only occasionally causes pain.  A far cry from just a month ago when I couldn’t even hold a fork in my right hand.

Dinner on Friday was sort of haphazard.  I don’t even recall what we had, but it was good.  Saturday started with a trip to our favorite farmer’s market and loading up on veggies and locally made ice cream.  Then, on a whim, we bought a couple of steaks from the local butchery.   The rest of the weekend is a jumble.  We had steak and salad on Saturday, cooked on a grill we just purchased that day.  We went to a casino where one of our guests hit the jackpot on a slot machine.  We had some amazing weather and opened the house up completely, which turned out to be a mistake since the flies wandered in from the freshly manured fields nearby.  One morning, I got up early to let the dogs out, and I could hear a couple of bullfrogs from a nearby pond.  We went to one of our favorite restaurants and got to eat outside on the balcony and watch the boats moving up and down the creek.  We tried a new restaurant for us and I got to have a blackberry mimosa, well two, and we all had a good time.  We bug bombed the house and garage to get rid of the flies.  It didn’t work.  We watched some movies, did some talking, went to a local wildlife reserve and got to watch a bald eagle diving for its dinner.  All in all, just had a very relaxing weekend.  Oh, and got a hair cut.  Mine is now so short, it actually sticks straight up.

Through all the good times, though, it was never very far from my mind that it was Memorial Day weekend so I kept the fallen close to my mind.

Just like this little guy.
