Members who are celebrating Memorial Day this weekend, do you have any special plans?
Cullen and I will be making it very memorable because we receive our 2nd vaccination on Memorial Day!
Other than that we are making it a family, “Get er done!” weekend. Gardening, spring cleaning, that sort of thing…but probably some grilling too.

I am so happy that you and Cullen both will receive your 2nd vaccination on Memorial Day. I hope that all goes well for you both, @colleensteele.
We will be here hopefully grilling, and maybe I will finally get to go in the pool a little. This all depends on the weather. It will be just Manny and me, so we will relax and enjoy the day together.
Oh. Spring cleaning sounds like something I have not yet done. I keep forgetting summer is pretty much staring us in the face.
Sasha hates fireworks, so we will probably be up late with her as we do on all holidays fireworks may be used. What about your fur babies?
I always want to go to the veteran’s cemetery and help put out the flags for Memorial Day, but Manny says it is too much walking and not wheelchair friendly.

Hey @colleensteele, I did want to check in on you and Cullen and see how things are going since your second vaccination on Monday. Did Aidan have a chance to get his yet? I know that he stays busy with his job.
What about the spring cleaning? Did you get that completed or started? I am a bit behind, LOL

Thanks for asking @jenc. Cullen and I are fully vaccinated now with no major side-effects. We both kind of felt tired and Cullen experience some muscle aches, but that is about it. Brian has been fully vaccinated for weeks now.
While I was in line I overheard someone ask if they are taking walk-ins. They said yes, at this point any day they accept walk-ins. I called Aidan and he headed over and he now has his first shot done! Yay team Steele!

Awesome news, @colleensteele! Yes, Kudos to team Steele.
Sadly, Manny and I both have been on hold. I messaged my PH doc as I was supposed to see him this month. But, found out my appointment pushed it to July because he will be out of the office for 2 weeks.
I must say, I am not happy about waiting, Mainly because we are planning to fly to San Diego in August for Kk’s birthday for a few days. I am looking forward to that but want to be vaccinated a bit before we would go. Manny has to revisit this with his doc too.
I have let my PH nurse know that I am not happy with that wait, so we will see what she says.

Hey y’all, it’s that time again. Doesn’t it feel like we get back to a holiday much faster than ever? I don’t know if it’s age, the world we live in post-COVID, or what. It has flown by so much faster to me the last several years.
@colleensteele, funny, I didn’t remember that you and Cullen received your 2nd vaccine on Memorial Day a year ago. It seems much longer than that, right?
Does anyone have any plans for the Memorial Day weekend? My hubby and I plan to take our bikes somewhere we haven’t been and ride them, but that’s it. Our neighbor friend’s son graduates high school on Saturday, and I’m helping her prepare for that. After that, Manny and I may be MIA for a day.
What about y’all? Any plans to get together or BBQ?

I’ll be working part of the day (the store is open). So Sunday afternoon the kids are coming over to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We’ll be having smoked frog legs!
May 27, 2022 at 2:00 pm #34497
Happy birthday to your hubby, @debbie. Smoked frog legs, huh? I’ve only ever had fried frog legs, which was maybe twice in my life. Is that one of his favorites?
Hopefully, you’ll have a busy morning at the shop and then rest the remainder of Monday. Any interest in the shop? I think you mentioned you had at one time.
Enjoy your family and your hubby’s birthday and maybe a little “Debbie” time.
@colleensteele and I will be off on Monday so we will be back on Tuesday. Although, at times, one of us has been guilty of checking in. I’m getting better at taking time off unless I’m at home near my Mac.

@jenc we’ve had fried frog legs but never smoked, but we love trying new things. He likes everything and he loves to smoke food. It will be a happy day!
A lot of nibbles on the business but no takers yet. I think it may be time to go with a broker.
Enjoy your Memorial day!

Hi @debbie, how were the smoked frog legs? I hope you and your family enjoyed a family birthday dinner for your husband.
Nibbles are positive and may turn into something more significant. I’ll say a little prayer for you, my PHriend. I know you’re probably working today, too, so check-in and let us know how things are going.
Thank you, we had a lovely weekend and a long bike ride over at Coronado Island; that was an excellent reset for me. Yesterday was more relaxing as Manny made ribs, I made a pasta salad, and we had watermelon, one of my favorites.

@jenc The frog legs were yummy. My son-in-law who is the pickiest eater in the world even loved them. I think they taste better smoked than fried, but you want to eat them hot. Once they start to cool they taste a little drier.
Still have the business. Still… Still… Appreciate the prayers.

Interesting @debbie! Being a southern gal myself, and that will never leave me, I thought all things fried were always better, right? Hehe
I will have to try the smoked frog legs one day. Are frog legs expensive as far as comparison to other meats? Of course, I’ve never bought them myself, only had fried at restaurants, primarily cajun places. Thanks for sharing.
The prayers are coming now; I just said another for selling the store and you and your family. Things will fall into place.

Here we are again; it’s time for the Memorial Day weekend that takes us into summer. Is anyone planning to BBQ? Do y’all have any plans?
I bet we do for some reason because I have been craving good ole’ BBQ and dill pickles today. Hehe.
Happy birthday to your hubby, too. Since you won’t work this Memorial Day I may not be on until next weekend. @debbie, what are your plans?
Beach, bike rides, and BBQ sound like our weekend plans. Now, I’m getting hungry!
Y’all enjoy a lovely holiday weekend. Colleen and I are off Monday. But you never know; often, you may find us popping in unless we aren’t home busy with family.

Happy Memorial Day! Hope everyone has a good, safe one.
Won’t be grilling here, but my son-in-law will be. Going to my daughter’s for a simple low key celebration.
In the last couple of days, I visited cemeteries and placed flags/flowers. My Dad served in the Army in the Korean War. Actually, I am only 20-25 minutes from the National D-Day Memorial. It is awesome to have such a memorial so close to me.

Hi @deetweedy, it sounds like you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Low-key celebrations are perfect. What did y’all BBQ? I’m still craving BBQ and dill pickles.
It was wet yesterday, so we had a “lazy” day. And that’s what we did, minus cooking a late lunch/early dinner.
Your visits to the cemeteries for flags and flowers for your Dad must offer some gratitude. I told Manny next year; we should go to the Rosecrans National VA Cemetery, just 20 minutes away.
My family and I would visit the National Cemetery in Texas with my brother-in-law to lay flags and attend the ceremony, paying tribute to his father and countless other brave souls. It was an experience filled with beauty.
I’m delighted you can visit the National D-Day Memorial. Witnessing such a fitting tribute to those who have given their all is a true honor.
What did everyone else in The US do yesterday for Memorial Day?
