Happy Memorial Day! I bet lots of you are having barbecues today! I am ready for one here. Maybe my human’s boyfriend will grill salmon or ahi tuna. That would be awesome!
Do you like my new dress, by the way? My human got it for me a few weeks ago, and then the weather got colder again. Now that it’s getting warmer, I can wear it. Don’t you love the rhinestone anchor on the back, and the little tie over one shoulder?
I wonder what is taking so long? I keep smelling awesome things cooking, but nobody has served me yet.
Apparently all those good smells were coming from next door. Our barbecue doesn’t look like it is working! So I guess I am getting regular cat food for dinner instead of a Memorial Day barbecue.
You know, Memorial Day is about more than barbecues, having a day off from work, and sales at your local stores. Before we enjoy any of that, we should all spend time thinking about and honoring those who lost their lives protecting our freedom. Freedom is a very fragile thing — I think many of you know that. You have to protect it, and sometimes you have to fight for it. Lots of Americans and American allies have done just that, and some paid the ultimate price. I think the best way you can honor these fighters is to make sure our freedoms remain intact, and live in integrity. That’s my Memorial Day wish for you today.
