Memorial Day

Grilling London Broil, per my wife’s instructions (hot fire; 10 minutes, turn, 10 minutes, eat). Wife, daughter and dog have retreated inside to escape the July-like heat. (Other daughter is visiting friends.) I’m overseeing the grill and testing to see if the iPad works as well as advertised.

Memorial Day. I didn’t serve in the military but like to think that I would have if called upon. I consider myself a patriot but not really a flag waver. I love the country, and want it defended, protected and prosperous, which probably puts me in the same camp as you.

I’m also a Vietnam era kid. The thing I remember most were the nightly body counts on the CBS Evening News. I knew none of those guys but remember each one.

The meat’s ready. Time for dinner.
