The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

The Lola Shuffle - "The Memorial Day Weekend Edition"

We're observing Memorial Day this weekend - it's not a holiday one celebrates, it's a holiday one observes - because it's not a happy thing. We're supposed to be remembering and commemorating military personnel who have died in service to our country. WOW! That's huge - they deserve so much more from us than an excuse for grilling and department store sales.

Of course being in the midst of a war, where we've surpassed the 4,000 mark on military deaths, this day should really resonate more with us as a nation than I believe it will. So, this weekend, I will stop and say a prayer for our military who have died in service to our country - and a prayer for their families and friends left behind.

Lola is shuffling in their honor - and if there's a happy song or a silly song, that's OK - because it's good to remember people in happiness - don't you think?

  1. Be My Life's Companion - The Mills Brothers

  2. Embraceable You - Nat King Cole

  3. Changing Your Demeanour - The Chieftains

  4. Sweet Baby James - James Taylor

  5. The Way You Move - Big Boi featuring Sleepy Brown

  6. As Time Goes Boy - Rod Stewart

  7. Two Out of Three Ain't Bad - Meat Loaf (fabulous song!)

  8. If It Makes You Happy - Sheryl Crow (a nice summery song)

  9. Hey Ya! - Outkast (I can't help it but this song *still* makes me smile)

  10. Freedom Is Coming Tomorrow - "Sarafina" Soundtrack (If only that were true!)

Have a safe and restful Memorial Day weekend with friends and family. And if you can, think a thought for our Military.

Yes, Hilda, I totally agree.

And thank you for the nice the tribute and helping us remember the reason for the 3 day weekend.
