Happy Memorial Day!
Oddly, this is one of my favorite holidays, created to honor our servicemen killed during war. It makes me think of my father who was in the Aleutian Islands during WWII and fought the Japanese on Attu Island. As a child, we often looked at souvenirs he'd gotten while stationed in Italy and then Alaska. The photos of Italy and other countries and Kodiak were kind of touristy - scenery and such.
The photos of the Aleutians included one of my dad holding a kit fox... then other photos of dead enemy soldiers. He never spoke about it, and it wasn't until after he died that we saw information about the Battle of Attu and realized the horrors he saw there.

Just about to go and see if the Repair Shop is on today. One of the drawbacks of Bank Holiday Mondays is that they change the schedule.
