Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Everybody

He came around from behind the cash register and rolled toward us in his wheelchair real fast, long hair lifting off his shoulders in the breeze. Vin was another old Army pal of Bernie’s, had a massive upper body and below that a lower body easily covered by a small blanket. They shook hands, Bernie’s hand, which normally looked so big, lost in Vin’s. “What’s doin’?” Vin said, reaching into his pocket and tossing a biscuit my way. I was ready, caught it in midair.

    Teddy: Happy birthday, pal! It seems like it was just yesterday when we were teaching you everything you needed to know about being an outlaw while your maw and paw slept.

    Thank you to all who have served this country, both 2 legged and 4 legged. You are remembered!

    Mom is going to her niece’s house for a family get together tomorrow. It will be a fun time (plus it is right around the corner so a very short drive). Be safe, all!
