Memorial Day

Memorial Day was over about an hour ago.  It was not a bad day.  I have had a horrible headache for the past 4 days but it subsided this afternoon.  At about 5 p.m. my two youngest sons came to my house where I live with Kathleen, and we cooked hamburgers and chicken outside over charcoal.  It was on the same little sportsman's grill I've owned for many years.  I bought it from the Williams-Sonoma catalogue in 1993 or 1994.  I've used it to cook for all of my children.  We watched the movie Glory. (It was Civil War widows and orphans who began the practice of decorating graves of fallen soldiers.) For our fallen soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guards, and airmen we prayed the Orthodox Prayer for the Departed and Memory Eternal.
