Wally thinks I don't know what Memorial Day is all about

Hey Ernie!  It’s Memorial Day here in the U.S. of A.

Or as I like to call it, Wally…Barbecue Day!

Again with the barbecue, Ernie?  Haven’t you learned anything from our past discussions as to what Memorial Day is all about?

Yeah, Wally…I have.  It’s a day we honor and remember those that have given their lives so we can be free.  And it’s a day to remember loved ones who have left us…both human and those with fur.

Ernie, I’m impressed!  You do know what Memorial Day is all about.

I hope we get barbecue today

Of course I do.  It’s also the official start of barbecue season.  And I sure hope we get some today! There’s no reason why we can’t honor and remember with a little barbecue, right?

Ernie…for once you make a very good point.

  11. Yep – that’s what we’re doing too……..remembering, honoring, and having some BBQ while we do that…..nothing wrong with that at all!

    Hugs, Sammy

  41. YES, barbeque is part of Memorial Day, and yes, it is a very emotional day for all, especially those whose sons and daughters fought to keep our country free. I watched the Indy 500 with mama and papa, the first time they had ever seen it, 400,000 people and the Star Spangled Banner and we all cried.

  42. Ernie you are a smartie cat and you deserve some BBQ mousies!
    Have a great Tuesday…

    Noodle and crew

  43. I think that Ernie has the exact right idea!

  44. Good job, Wally ad Ernie. Hope you had a great day and got some nommy bar-b-que. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
