Blue Monday - Memorial Day

Welcome! It's Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Most bloggers understand the basics of a meme. For Blue Monday, there must be something Blue on the post and there must be a link to this blog. When either of those vital elements are missing, the link is deleted. If the blogger has left a comment, I always respond in kind. However, if no comment is left, no Blue is on the post, and no link is provided... what else can I do?

Have some fun. See what other Blue participants have to share by clicking on their photos. Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.



We fly our American flag, which is red, white, and Blue.



Some use this holiday as the celebration of the unofficial start of summer. Grills are fired up, families and friends get together, and hot dogs and hamburgers are enjoyed. I found this Blue grill on the internet.



Stores use the holiday to promote business, and plenty of folks go shopping.



How will you spend this day?

Happy Blue Monday!

May your contemplation this Memorial Day lead you (and all of us) to deeper appreciation of those who serve our country in many ways.

Sally I hope your Memorial Day is safe and relaxing and full of family moments. I pray our military all over the world are safe because I appreciate their service for you and I.

Happy Blue Monday, Sally! Hope you are having a lovely weekend - it's already Monday afternoon here down under :) Your Memorial Day is similar to our Anzac Day, when we remember all the soldiers from Australia and New Zealand that died while serving our/their country. Greetings from Australia♥ ~Pernilla

This is probably the easiest Blue Monday for us as we honor the memories of those who have served the red, white & blue. Have a great holiday.

In Sweden we have no Memorial Day since we haven't been to war for about 200 years.

Helo Sally,
probably I'm doing something wrong, I was unable to connect :-( My English is only with the help of Google Translate.

This is a day to stop and reflect on why we have it as well as rest day.Mine will be simple, having breakfast at IHop,get gas, play bingo with seniors, and mow my yard. Now, it just does not get much more exciting than that. Have a good day Sally.

bj said...

Hi, Sally...We celebrated yesterday so today is a rest day for us. Good thing,I guess, as the wind is blowing hard here this morning....would hate to be trying to cook outside.
Hope your day is good.

I really want to fly our flag today but were having thunderstorms right now. Hopefully it will clear up this afternoon so we can grill too.

Hi Sally, We have had 4 wonderful days with our grands and children. We leave for home in the morning. Ashley received money for her grad celebration and we took her shopping today. I mean ALL day. She is shopping for college in the fall. I had to take a nap when we arrived home at dinner time. Yep...dinner time. A fun day. We celebrated the day with pizza. Our bbq was yesterday for our grands grad party.

Your post is a lovely tribute to our armed forces veterans. They deserve to be honored. Hope your Memorial Day was a happy one.

Love, Jeanne
