Yay! Finally a Saturday morning where I was able to sleep as long as I wanted to and no alarm went off. Come on in and get up a cup of coffee, if you want any this late in the morning. Right now the sun is shining and it's a beautiful Texas morning. Lot's of rain in the forecast for the rest of the holiday weekend. After I chill with my coffee, I've got to do some grocery shopping.
This past week at work taxed my poor brain, but it was a good week. We are moving forward with a new plan for processing and building our routes. We might hit a kink or snag here or there, but overall, I think it's a good plan for us and our customers. When the dust settles over this change, I have a few ideas I want to see implemented. Got to write up a proposal of sorts for my boss to review and get the conversation started. In February I started an internal audit of our sales tax exemptions. Just about to have that project wrapped up.
I heard a local news station talking about this holiday last night on TV. They said this was the recognized start of summer - actually that is June 21st. The said this was the biggest boating weekend and did a piece on boating safety. Number one problem is running out of gas. But they never said a word about what Memorial Day is.
People, Memorial Day started as a day to lay wreaths and garlands upon the graves of those who gave their lives in service to this country, protecting her borders, her people, her freedoms. Honoring them for this supreme sacrifice. In 2000, a resolution was passed asking us to pause at 3:00pm local time "to remember and reflect upon the sacrifices made by so many to provide freedom for all". Please don't let this day go by without in some way large or small remembering it's meaning! Me, I try to take flowers to the Veteran's memorial in our town and/or put flags on graves of family members who served. For an excellent post from a Vet's perspective: Got a Letter in the Mail!
Seems, once again, I've monopolized the conversation. Let's get another cup. So, what has work been like for you, lately? How do you honor our fallen hero's on this day?
