Who is in the driveway topless??

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.

The Star Spangled Banner

1) Are you a veteran? Are there veterans in your family? (We are grateful and want to hear about it.)
I am not, but there are a bunch in my family!  A few uncles, my brother and lots of other peeps. 

2) Memorial Day also kicks off the summer season. What's your favorite picnic food?  Hmmmmmmm how about a plate of pineapple brats, podada salad, some baked beans and a pickle?  Can't forget the pickle..

3) Let's celebrate the Memorial Day holiday with ice cream. What's your favorite flavor?
Really?  I'm on Weight Watchers.  Can we talk about points, please?  LOL  I love toasted almond anything.  Or key lime.  Or banana.  Or.... anything with nuts.  Yum..

4) This marks the weekend when Americans step up their outdoor activity and do things they may not have been able to do during the winter months. For example, when is the last time you rode a bike?
Last week I took mine out for a spin.  But let's talk about Lucy 2.0.  She's in the driveway, topless.  Nos THAT is my favorite outdoor activity!

5) Or went hiking?
I live in Michigan.  Where it's flat. 

6) Or rode a horse?
Oh, Jesus... now we're really pushing it. 
7) Or toasted a marshmallow?
Last year.  My neighbors roast 'em all the time.  In fact, they borrowed my roasting stick just last night!

8) As you answer these questions, is there an air conditioner or window fan on?
Nope, a cool breeze coming through the window, the smell of fresh cut grass and some little birdies singing.  Life is good.  :)

9) Crazy Sam needs your help: What song or a performer would you like to see featured in a Saturday 9 this summer? 
Bruce Springsteen
Blake Shelton
Miranda Lambert
How's that :)

The weather here isn't Memorial Day-ish, it's overcast and cool. But humid. blah.

I'm an almond nut, too. My cheaper half hates it, so obviously I buy more almond products!

You have a special stick for roasting marshmallows? Out here we just use whatever is laying around on the ground, though we do wash it off first.

I have missed who/what Lucy 2.o is and why is she topless!

Lucy 2.0 is the magnificent Jeep that I traded Lucy 1.0 in for. She's topless :)
And yes - the marshmallow sticks are long ones with two prongs so you can roast 2 at a time! :)

It's like really flat here too. It's so not the prettiest place to live.
