Saturday 9: Battle Hymn of the Republic
(From the archives)
Memorial Day was introduced to honor the men and women who died while serving the in the United States Armed Forces. We want to make sure that message is not forgotten this weekend.
1) This recording was made live at St. Patrick's Cathedral, during Sen. Robert Kennedy's funeral. (Hear it here.) While both of Bobby's older brothers were decorated war heroes, he served too -- enlisting in the Navy in 1943. Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.) I am not. There are several in the family who are, and several more who are serving now, one being my youngest son.
2) Memorial Day also kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food? any kind of salad: potato salad, pasta salad etc
3) Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life. lilac
4) When was the last time you had your hair cut or trimmed? a few weeks ago

6) If money was no object, what home improvement would you like to make this summer? I would like to turn our deck into a three season room
7) What was the last thing you bought purely for your own enjoyment? scrapbook stuff for my new planner, can't wait for that to arrive so I can put my creative juices back to work!
