MilSpouse Friday Fill In

I haven't done this in awhile but I kinda had to do it this week. Why? Look at number 5 :)

1. Do you think civilians, in general, understand the meaning of Memorial Day?

Some. Especially if they are veterans or civic minded. I think most people, though, see it as a party weekend to barbecue. Which is fine, but take a minute to think of the real meaning.

2. What are your plans for the Memorial Day weekend?

Well, it is a 4-day for TJ so we had an afternoon date today. This evening he is going with the American Legion to put flags on graves. On Monday we are going to try to go to Worlds of Fun or Oceans of Fun(depends on the weather) because it is free for TJ.

3. What skill/talent do you wish you had? submitted by The 3 Turners

Either singing, piano or guitar. Or dancing.

4. Which came first: The chicken or the egg? submitted by I Married Into the Army


5. What is the best thing about your post (base)? The worst? submitted by Randomly, Robyn

I submitted this question!!! The best is the rich history. Fort Riley was established back in 1860 something. Also, the pools are free.

The worst is the constant road work and when they close the most used gates. And some of the homes are a little weird, like ours LOL. But it could be worse.

cute meme!! cool they are using one of your questions! I bet your base does have lots of history with it!! I do think lots of people have missed the meaning of Memorial Day; they think its the beginning of summer, but there is a very deep rich meaning behind it and I'm thankful people have given their life for our freedom!

Last week was the start of summer for me LOL.

It certainly does not feel like the start of summer here today!! Too cloudy and gloomy.
