Signs of a Successful Memorial Day


Maybe you've visited a graveyard. But maybe not because you have a tiny fear that it will make your kids grow up a little extra macabre.

You should have a tinch of sunburn.

At some point during the three-day weekend, "God Bless America" or "My Country Tis of Thee" or "The Star Spangled Banner" or "God Bless the U.S.A." has been sung.

You've eaten hot dogs. Hamburgers. Potato salad. Chips. Pie. Brownies. Watermelon. Or all of the above. Something should have been fresh off the grill.

Frisbee. Or horseshoes, lawn darts (where legal), bocce, or croquet.

Family. And friends.

A moment or more of patriotism. And you can go back to life on Tuesday with a nice memory, thankfulness for our country's freedoms, and that tinch of sunburn.
