Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day at Arlington 2008
via wiki

Memorial Day is Sunday, May 29th

Yay! Three-day weekend! But more than that, Memorial Day is the day we, as a nation, remember our soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. We owe them our freedom, a debt that can never be repaid.

Please spare a moment this Sunday to honor their memory.

Here is a great unofficial site about Memorial Day - the page on the history of Memorial Day is quite interesting.

Of course we can enjoy the weekend too! If you are looking for Couch Potato type suggestions, I can report that Doctor Thorne is a fun, light period piece which the kids and I enjoyed a lot. I also finished The Night Manager and I am now in the Hiddleston-for-Bond camp.  For upcoming video viewing, I am hoping to watch Deadpool and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Or if I don't manage to see them this weekend, maybe I can catch up on Outlander.

And remember to check out our book reviews for  some weekend reading picks.

Have a great long weekend!
