Memorial Day Weekend

25 May 2015 – Life Is Good
Thu: swim and water-gun fight with the kids at the lake. Jeff made this yummy sweet consisting of melted butter and brown sugar poured over saltine crackers covered with chocolate which he calls ‘Scott Thingies’

Asked Scott to provide a name for his Thingies and here is the answer – the official name is ‘Chocolate Bark’, but it became well-known in UF and IV circles as Scott Thingies, affectionately dubbed so by Linn and/or Jeff W.W. I haven’t actually made our had one in many years, wish i could partake. Glad to hear the legend lives on!

Sun: Frank & Jennifer who will be getting married in Nov stayed for the night as they were attending a friend’s wedding here in town. Linn was out for her run and Jeff on call – poor them having to put up with me!Β  Good luck to them and all the best for their future.

Combined BBQ, not the same as grilling, dinner with Haley, Brian their 2 boys and 2 dogs who live next door. Zuno loves being there as they have a fenced-in backyard and he can run freely and play with their bitch! Gave them 3 rib bones each and I became their best friend, for that moment πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

On Memorial Day, I don’t want to only remember the combatants. There were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live – Eric Burdon
