A Day to Remember

WAFFLES:  What are you doing up there, Boss? Did Glogirly forget to put away our food? 

KATIE:  No, Waffles. I'm just thinking about what today means.

WAFFLES:  It's Monday, Boss. That means....well, it's Monday. And tomorrow is Tuesday–

KATIE:  It's Memorial Day, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  So it's not Monday? 

KATIE:  Well, technically it is Monday. But it's also Memorial Day. 

WAFFLES:  Oh, you mean like parties and barbecues and FRIED CHICKEN Memorial Day!

KATIE:  It's much more than that, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  More than fried chicken? Are you sure???

KATIE:  It's a day of remembrance, Waffles. To honor and thank those we've loved and those we've lost.

WAFFLES:  Don't worry, Boss. I'm not lost. I'm right here. 

Memorial Day Gratitude
We're pausing this Memorial Day to remember the people we love and say thank you. Friends, family, teachers, soldiers...some we've known our whole lives. They've touched our hearts and helped shape who we are. Some remain anonymous, having given so much, so selflessly, for this beautiful country we call home.

For us, Memorial Day serves as a reminder to honor those who we miss as well as those who continue to inspire us and love us unconditionally.


  1. I love having you in my life Waffles, Katie, Glogirly and Gloman. Our Memorial Day is Remembrance Day November 11 in Canada. I love sharing this day with my American friends. We honor our soldiers humans and animals every day of the year. I wish the ones struggling when they come home could receive better treatment by the country they served. Let's not forget them.

    1. You are absolutely right, Celine. So often it seems the veterans that return home and struggle to find their place or get the help they need are forgotten.

  2. Purrs to everyone on Memorial Day, who are honoring those who served and paid the ultimate price.

  3. We are very grateful to those who sacrificed so we could enjoy this day, and everyday.

  4. Thank you. This was beautifully done.

  5. What a lovely post. hope you get some chicken.

  6. Yes, we must remember those who fought and died to keep us free.

  7. Great post. We hope you get some chick-hen!

  12. It's important to explain or remember the meaning of that special day. Happy Memorial Day ! Purrs

  13. Thank you for this special post, pals. We, too, are grateful for the veterans - human and animal - who gave their all for all of us.
