The Park Bench The Park Bench

So I know its a little ways off, but what are you going to do for Memorial day this year?


Its actually my anniversary this year LOL so I want to go down to the beach for the day. Hubby is a little adverse to it though since its always insane, especially if its nice out. But I still really want to go since we can spend it all together for a change.


What about you ladies? Have you started thinking about it yet?

That sounds like tons of fun! I love having sleepovers with good friends!

Quoting Rach0307:

Every Memorial Day, my apartment building has a pool-opening party (well, the day before), then we go to my friends' place for a few drinks and a bonfire, stay over, and have a cookout on the day of. Always a good time :)

I know, but theres a bunch of loopholes too. Its something about how many hours you worked during what that pay period will bee. She explained it once to me. Its some crap about if the hours with time and a half turn out to be over the full time hour cut off they don't get it, but if its part time and only a few hours they'll get time and a half but only if they are scheduled for X-amount of hours. Its was so confusing and stupidly a** backwards its not funny. Its everything they can do to not pay people. smh

Memorial Day is supposed to be a day of mourning and remembrance.

That is why the flag is flown at half staff from dawn til noon (mourning) then from noon to dusk it's at full staff (remembrance).

We will be flying our flag and putting flags on veterans graves at the local cemetery
