Well, Memorial Day Weekend is set now!  I just returned from my mailbox and discovered these Padilla Cigars along with a knife I had sent out for repair.  It's an Imperial Military Knife made in 1961…..that's older than me folks

Close up:

This is the weekend traditionally known as the Beginning of Summer.  As far back as I can remember it was just that….our first outdoors experience.  Whether we were camping, or planting our garden, it was  the "Official Drop The Green Flag on Summer"!  I miss those days. 

Anyhow, let's not forget the main reason for the season….
Memorial Day is a day to remember all men and women who died while serving the United States Armed Forces. 

So, as you pound your tent stakes firmly in the solid ground, remember it was fought for and the freedom we enjoy is because of others who have made it possible!! 

Memorial Day Weekend Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel MAGNA Sahluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!
