On a Memorial Salute

Greetings on this holiday Monday in the USA!

Given the 3-day holiday weekend, I’ve developed this post ahead of schedule. If all goes as planned, our weekend will include two ballroom events, visiting the Cincinnati Museum Center for at least one (maybe two) Omnimax films, a bit of work around the condo, a long walk to town Β (and back) for lunch, work, and hopefully some infrequent down time at home. What did you do this weekend?

Meals: The Musical returns this week. I wanted “Seafood” as a theme, but after researching the topic, I’m not convinced about the availability of songs. Therefore, Ingredients is the theme. Think flavors as herbs, spices, extracts, and other common ingredients that aren’t dishes themselves … however, no fruits or vegetables (a previous act) and no chocolate (reserved for later). There is a lot of leeway here, so chose judiciously.

Celebrations For Your Week

  • (Week) Week of Solidarity with the People of Non-Self-Governing Territories, Hurricane Preparedness Week, Frozen Yogurt Week,Β American Beer Week, Emergency Services Week
  • (Mon) Something Day, Wine Day, Tap Dance Day, Brown Bag-It Day, Missing Children’s Day. Nerd/Geek Pride Day, Cookie Monster Day, Towel Day

Monday is Memorial Day in the US, so I’m passing on the normal Monday frivolity for one of my favorite military tributes. Have a good week.

  1. Have a nice weekend Frank, that extra day is always a treat. Will you attend a service of some kind to mark Memorial Day? [We always have a Dawn Parade for ours and interestingly in recent years attendances have been growing]. Now I need to go hunt down some exotic ingredients …. with music ……….


    • Robin,
      Towel Day … who would have thunk it? πŸ˜‰ … So far, the weekend has gone well … even had a rare day without much on our schedule, which is quite the rarity.


  2. Slugs return from Capistrano?? Just got home from Cedar Point – rode Rougarou! Waited almost 2 hours – but should have known better on Memorial Day…It’s floorless, you feel a strange sensation like you’re on the tracks. Not as smooth as Millenium, which is my favorite, but fun! Hope you had a great weekend as well πŸ™‚


  3. Hope your weekend was as fun as your description Frank. We were busy, plus included a 3.25 mile run plus a neighborhood walk. Family gatherings that are always fun. Have a good week ahead.


      • Thank you so much for such a kind and well written reply! I too host a number of different musical artists and types of listeners.

        I’m sure we will be visiting each other in the future…



        • I encourage you to visit one of my blog musicals. In the sidebar, Categories > Entertainment > Meals: The Musical (is in progress) … I will announce the next act’s theme and production time this Friday within Opinions in the Shorts. This is perfect for The Spinman!
