Suddenly, I feel I’m out of the whirlwind of parental schedules, and, whoa!, it’s Mem Day weekend aka Decoration Day. An NPR person mentioned on the morning news that only ten percent of the USA’s WWII vets are still around. We left one behind today (eyeing his garden to figure out the next task to undertake) to head north, and see if the UP is as hot as downstate.
OTR* comment: Ah, traffic enforcement is underway. Let’s make our highways safe this holiday weekend!
LATER: We safely rolled into our destination, opening the cottage to discover, well, the usual few surprises, nothing major.
