Memorial Day … The Unofficial Start Of The 2015 Summer Season

After a Sunday evening filled with wall-to-wall video weather wizards spouting impending dire doom from potential tornados that might be lurning in the storm darkened skies, the sun came up on a bright and sunny Monday Memorial Day. Of my seven real uncles (I don’t count my five uncles by marriage as real uncles) five served in WWII and I salute them for their service.

My favorite was  the youngest and my namesake … Uncle Jerome. OK, you ask,  how could an uncle named Jerome be the namesake of a guy named Robert? Thank a busy-body nun at Sacred Heart Grade School who was convinced he would have a far, far better school-life if he went by his middle name (Robert) than his given name (Jerome). I thank that un-named nun, too, Because by the time I popped into the world, his entire family was calling him Bob instead of Jerry.2 bobs

He was also my favorite uncle, too. And when he was old enough to join the WWII military, he joined the Navy!Sailors Two

OMG, shades of the Village People before their time!

My Uncle Bob was my last surviving uncle. He passed away early this year at age 89.

MONDAY MORNING SCREENSAVER

Woke up this morning in my usual Monday Morning Grump manner and turned on the Mac to check my calendar for today.MondayMorningScreensaver

The screensaver helps, but the grump lingers on.

Remember this?

Magic Coin

When was the last time you saw one of these? Do you realize that an entire generation has grown up not knowing what a silver dollar is?

Mlle. Renee’s New Toy Box

ToyBox

Due to the overflow of old toys she refuses to throw away, I had to build my faithful companion a new toy box. Now if I can only get her to pick up all the toys see scatters on the floor looking for the one she wants to play with.Sleeping In

Oh, by the way, due to the chill this morning she decided to sleep-in.

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY!

Just to let you know that there were a lot of flower arrangements in the Saint Louis Art Museum’s ART IN BLOOM exhibit that did not contain orange flowers.
