You guys! It’s Memorial weekend here in the U.S. of A. with tomorrow actually being Memorial Day. So I’ve got a patriotic selfie for you today.

Usually on Memorial Day all I can think about is barbecue because…you know…it IS the official start of barbecue season. But that’s not what Memorial Day is all about. Seriously, Memorial Day is a day we remember and honor the brave men and women that gave their lives protecting our country so we can be free. And it’s a day to remember loved ones who have left us…both human and those with fur.

So whatever you’re doing to celebrate this holiday…having a picnic, going to the beach, hanging out with friends enjoying the day, or having a little barbecue…take some time to remember those brave men and women and those who are no longer with us.

One of these days I just know I’m gonna get some barbecue. A cat can dream, can’t he?

Happy Memorial Day!
