Hi guys. And Happy Memorial Day to those of you in the U.S. of A.!

Usually on Memorial Day all I can think about is barbecue because…you know…it is the official start of barbecue season. But this year Memorial Day feels just a little bit different…because of that stupid virus thing. Memorial Day is a day we remember and honor all the brave men and women that gave their lives protecting our country so we can be free. But we should also remember and honor the health care workers and first responders that have risked their lives dealing with Covid-19.

So when you’re celebrating this holiday…which isn’t as easy when you gotta social distance and stuff like that…take some time to remember all those brave men and women. They all are true heroes!

Happy Barbecue Day! Rats! I just couldn’t make it through my speech without mentioning barbecue again! But since I did, here’s a tip for you humans. Make sure you take your mask off before you eat your barbecue…you don’t wanna get sauce all over it.

  1. Sure do agree with you about Memorial Day this year should include the COVID 19 victims who were hoping others.

    Enjoy the day!

  5. We owe so much to those heroes, I don’t think they would mind if you enjoy your BBQ, that is why they sacrifice so much – so enjoy Ernie!

  6. We will always remember our heroes each and every day.

  15. MOL about the mask! Happy Memorial Day!

  16. Very nice thoughts Ernie. Our health care workers are amazing and heroic.

  17. I do enjoy this site very much, but must point out that one would not say congratulations at a funeral. Keeping that thought in mind, it is inappropriate to say Happy Memorial Day. Remember Memorial Day would be in keeping with the sentiment of the day. Always remember those who gave all.
    I am retired Navy, as was my father, as well as several family members in various services. I am very fortunate in that I served in peacetime, and never lost a family member to any conflicts or wars.

    • You’re right…Memorial Day really isn’t a happy holiday given its meaning. It’s a day of remembering and reflecting. Thank you for your service to our country. As we said…those that served to keep us free are true heroes!

  18. Honoring our heros.

  19. We need a new barbecue here! No matter – we understand the real meaning of the day.

  20. Hahaha. The Boy wanted to try dining out. He asked if I thought we’d need masks. I gave him THE LOOK and he quickly realized how useless that would be 🙂

  21. It is different this year because of the virus but in our hearts it’s the same – we remember our heroes – the ones now and the ones then……always. That’s a great photo of you with the flag Ernie!

    Hugs, Teddy

  22. We hope you had a wonderful Day, Ernie. We had all special Anniversary Days, like 75 years of Furreedom, this year and some more occassions, and will celebrate Extra good next year 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday 🙂

  23. Ernie that is a most handsome photo of you and Our Grand Old Lady

  24. Happy Memorial day to you all!!!

  25. Wonderful post, Ernie. We are so grateful for all of our heroes.

  26. Hope your Memorial Day celebration was spectacular, Ernie. It sure was a little different than in years past, wasn’t it?

  27. Hope that BBQ was yummy! We had some chili Lime Chicken…

    And yes the events of today are for sure worth saluting those who have to deal with t up front. Petcretary is a health care worker, too, but so far her facility is virus free, even after a short scare…Phew!
