Re: YOUR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND PLANS?

We have a wedding on Sunday.  I just "love" people that plan a wedding on a holiday weekend.  It's taking place in the hotel of a downtown Chicago hotel.  GREAT!  A holiday weekend AND holiday traffic because the lakefront does a fireworks display.

Do I sound like I'm complaining?  You bet I am but, we will go, put on a happy face....its one day out of our lives.

I usually go to Atlantic City for a few days of gambling, swimming, boardwalk people laughing watching & eating.

 

This year, I plan on going over to Philly for their festivities on Penns Landing & the surrounding areas (South St.).

 

Plan B

Staying home & gouging on Bobby Chez seafood (I live 1 1/2 miles from his shop).

We live at the Jersey shore so will be hosting a house filled with guests most of the holiday weekend.  Summer weather should arrive tomorrow!

Re: YOUR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND PLANS?

I am lucky enough to have a photo of my direct ancestor, in uniform, who died as a result of war wounds during the Civil War, fighting for the Union.  I always place it on our mantel with a few candles around it.

 

Since Memorial Day has also come to signal the beginning of summer, I usually plan to have a menu like burgers, coleslaw, potato salad and a red, white and blue mix of fruit salad.

 

Hopefully we will also have a trip to a beach not far from here that we love.

Getting tires and an alignment done on my car on Saturday, then off to walk dogs at the shelter.  Sunday we'll just hang out.  Walk dogs at the shelter on Monday (people don't like to give up their holidays, so we always need help).
