Hang Out with the Hangover-ers

Yep - it's Friday again! You know what that means...Hip Hop Hangover for Unity peeps! My post will be short today.



Memorial Day is coming. Do you have a tradition? Visiting your loved ones cemetery area and sprucing them up? Taking in a parade to honor our veterans? Celebrating a hero among you?



I really don't have a tradition. My Dad is retired Air Force, and he never liked to have us make a fuss. I think that was because he was dealing with his own issues of all the men who served and died that he had personally known.



Today - I would like to take a moment and recognize my heros. You see them every day. They work behind the scenes, giving of themselves quietly with no expectation of glory or remuneration. They are the volunteers. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. They even come in an array of species. They clean community spaces, take homebound people where they need to go, deliver meals to shut-ins, help with crossing the street, just sit and let a lonely someone pet them. Thank a volunteer today. It's enough pay to them - I promise!


Thanks for stopping by. Have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend! Stop by SCS and chat with us! Check out Unity's specials! They're HOT.


Peace be the journey - cool runnings.


Ta for now, ~ky

  5. Beautiful card!

    And I'm glad you find volunteering heroic!

    They work harder than alot of paid employees I know.

    We don't have a "tradition". But we used to trek to New Paltz, NY to rock climb. Not this year, tho. Too much other stuff going on.

    Hey - Have a great weekend! :)
