Tun. I thank YOU for your recognizition. However, I never expected or expect to be thanked for doing something for 30 years that I firmly believe in and love. That being, our freedom to walk steets unimpeded, to speak our opinions, to vote for our representatives and to succeed by our own inititives. The ones that deserve the greatest respect lie in Flanders Field, in Arlington and endure the pains of wars in our VA hospitals. And, I thank you for having an appreciation of fore fathers and the framers of the constition of The United States. And, I repect your bearing as a patriot. Enjoy your your long week-end.

My feelings here as well Paul, I also served but don't feel the need to be thanked. I have always felt most of the ones we need to thank are no longer with us. Until you have served you will realy never understand what we are talking about, it was our job. No thanks needed here, just proud to have served. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend, just take a little time out and pay your respects.

DinnerPail, I agree with you, but I do have to say it will be nice to be able to fish this year instead of the 110 degree weather in Iraq.

As a Vet, I agree that no thanks is necessary for the Honor to serve for the greatest country in the world. The real thanks goes to our fallen in any campaign and our families who had to endure it back here at home.

I served during a time of peace, and it is with a humbled heart that I say Thank You to all our veterans. I would ask that each of us take time tomorrow to remember those who have unselfishly paid the ultimate price for each of us to live in freedom. God Bless our soldiers and our country!

I sincerely thank all those that have served this country during times of war or peace. The efforts and sacrafices that you all make to keep us safe and to protect the rights that we all cherish are appreciated so much, I cant even think of the right word to say. Thanks to all men and women that have and are serving, your doing a great job. Gob bless!!!

Pretty much sums it up.

Everyone, please remember what this day is all about.

Memorial Day is meant to be a day to remember the members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have given the ultimate sacriface to this nation or been injured serving the country. Those who have fallen or returned wounded are the ones who we should be thankful to on this day.

The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.

At that time today please take a moment to honor those brave fallen and injured men and women who have served this great nation so bravely so that all can enjoy the freedom and opportunity we have.

I also want to say thank you to all who have served, but would rather do it everyday than just one day a year. If you wish to do more, check out Operation Minnesota Nice. They are always looking for a few more good people. Our servicemen and women are the backbone of this country, bless them all.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    • And yup, the BLM certainly was there....the fruitcakes, and the rest of mainstream America, even the voting llama's...  
    • Hillary catches Bill staring at Ivanka  
    • Nothing wrong with liking some of the ideas......being a full blown nut job libertarian is another.
    • I've never watched one of these parades before........... it's so weird. Some funny arse signs in the crowds. At least they could have had some clowns throwing candy to kids. It's not like there is a shortage of clowns in DC.
    • Always the Russians.....
    • Trump does not use the POTUS twitter ..   Who ever twittered it, was not trump.   Prolly the russians ??  
    • They changed it today to the Obama inauguration pic, then changed it to the US flag, then changed it a third time to the grainy potato-cam pic of Trump staring at squirrels........
