Sunday was the day we gathered for Memorial Day this year. Here is dad manning his grill....the grill that made him want to put on offer on this house 20 some odd years ago. And below that is a picture of his yummy pork ribs. They taste 500% better than they look and they look delicious there.
One special thing about dad is that he is a veteran of 2 wars. He's taught me to respect our country even with its imperfections. He's taught me to respect our service men and women whether we agree or not with the job they are doing. He's taught me to enjoy the freedoms this country offers. So on this Memorial Day I want to send a big thanks to all the service men and women out there for serving our country and I want to send a big thanks to the family members and friends of those who have ever lost loved ones while serving our country. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are all my heroes. And dad.....thanks for instilling in me the love and respect for our country. I only hope I can teach my children the same way you have taught me these things.
