It’s Memorial Day, during which we remember those service men and women who paid the ultimate price to protect our freedom. It is also the first unofficial day of summer, when people get together for barbecues and warm weather activities. My human and I are having a picnic, and we are having fried chicken.
Instead of cooking, my human just went out and grabbed some fried chicken for our picnic… but it still looks amazing! I’m not so sure about the biscuit. I guess I’ll let my human have that.
I was very excited! It’s not every day I get fried chicken, you know.
I even got cat treats for dessert! My human just had cole slaw and no dessert. She is kind of bummed because they had chocolate beignets, and she decided not to get any. How much you wanna bet she goes back later in the week and picks one up?
I really enjoyed my Memorial Day picnic! I hope we get to have more picnics in the future, although my human did complain about the ants.
My human shot a YouTube Shorts video for you too! You can enjoy it below.
Happy Memorial Day! And if you have a relative who served, or if you yourself did, thank you.

Next time you and your momma go on a picnic, can I come, too?! I’ve never had Popeye’s Chicken, but I do get KFC sometimes. It is delicious, though my humans tend to be stingy and only give me a small sampling. They don’t divide up the chicken equally, which isn’t fair. Tee hee hee.

Your human cracked us up with her you can’t act like an animal. Did you tell her that the two of you are both animals, and that you do not know how to act like a vegetable! MOL! That friend chicken sure looked tasty. Happy belated Memorial Day. Looks as if you had a terrific one.

I’ll bet you three biff bags and a nip mouse your peep goes back for one of those chocolate desserts. MOUSES!
What a marvelous picnic and what wonderful photos and videos!
It’s good to have a day of remembrance of those who gave all for our freedom.
And oh yeah, I’d go for those chocolate beignets! I remember having the basic ones in NOLA , tasty! I didn’t know they’re being made with chocolate now.

What a sweet picnic! Looks like a beautiful day there too. Glad you ladies had a lovely holiday!
Sounds and looks like a great Memorial Day picnic…….however, my Mom said there’s no way she wouldn’t have gotten TWO chocolate beignets!

I love that comment above me calling you Miss Sassy Pants! And Popeye’s ANYTHING is a treat. BUT your chicken and cat treats…deelishus!
You had a nice time, Summer. I can see you enjoyed the food. My human doesn’t eat meat so I just get my catfood.
What a great Memorial Day.
P.S. I love biscuits… a little butter…. Yummmmm….

Did you get both pieces of chicken? I mean your human only had cold slaw. Can you believe my peeps had grilled cheese and tomato sammiches?? I did get some arm on the cob this morning courtesy Pop.

The fried chicken place had beignets ? Wow !
Glad to see no fingers or thumbs were harmed in your sharing the chicken with your huMom.
Melissa & Mudpie says
So much fun! Your human left chocolate beignets behind??? We don’t have a Popeye’s around here.

I’m so glad for you to have a picnic. (Funny comment
that you can’t act like an animal – of course you have
to use your manners I know.). I agree you need fried
chicken more often.
A picnic! How cool is that!
We’ll be doing special things for the residents where I work, today, but maybe not outside, as its kind of cool and cloudy.
