It's a weird Memorial Day here weather-wise. The temperature isn't supposed to get over 80 and the National Weather Service is calling for 100% chance of rain, showers, and thunderstorms with 2 to 3 inches of rain possible. This has been an unusually mild May, with only a day or two hitting 90. Ordinarily by now, the last week of May, 90 is an everyday thing and the afternoon thunderstorm system has started.
With 100% chance of rain, there will be no barbecue today, and probably not much of anything productive. Good thing I just put fresh batteries in my UPS for this computer and the house internet/video streaming hub.
I've run this picture more than any other on my blog. I guess it resonates with me.
In a final act of loyalty, Hawkeye, the dog of slain Navy SEAL U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Jon T. Tumilson walked up to his fallen master’s casket during the funeral in Rockford, Iowa, and then laid mournfully down beside the body for the rest of the proceedings [Note: Petty Officer Tumilson was one of the 30 killed in Afghanistan in the shoot down of Extortion 17 which the families blame squarely on the Obama administration - SiG]
