Memorial Day and Tropical Storm Beryl
Well unless you live under a rock, you know tomorrow is the day the US celebrates Memorial Day. A day to honor all vets. Also, unless you just are not paying attention, you know there is a strong tropical storm hammering its way towards Florida. Now this particular storm on Friday was sub tropical and not expected to bring anything more than rain. Oh yeah OK, why do I even listen to the media? Now it is almost an official hurricane and going to cause all kinds of havoc, including heavy rain, we need rain, just not a deluge, I have said I don't have a boat. So now I have to expect to have no power, at some point. To make it all better, I had a medical issue that needs to be seen by a doctor and tomorrow is Memorial Day, ugh. Thank goodness it is improving, and I can handle it for the most part. Even better yet, my husband is a volunteer fireman. In the last 24 hours he has had six calls. He has little sleep, nor have I. Tonight he is going to stay at the firehouse, as we both are assuming it is going to be a long and active night. Good thing he has tomorrow off to sleep, jeesh. I had to call off from work Sat night, something I despise doing. I think if you only work one night a week, you shouldn't ever call off. Unfortunately I did not have a choice in this matter. I will update everyone on the medical issue, after I know everything is OK. I hope everyone has a sunny and warm Memorial Day! We were smart enough to barbecue and swim on Fri and Sat. Talk to you all soon. BTW do you know the history of our National Anthem? I will try to find the video, it is cool.
