Feeling the urge to be patriotic, I chosered, white and bluecolors to wear.I didn’t have a red cardigan, so I wore a
slip over sweater and headed to the mall to buy myself a red cardigan.Practical. Matches my car and kitchen.You would probably want to wear red for the
memorial weekend too.
Well, if you do not have a red cardigan, forget about it.
Red is out of season.
Stopped at Nordstom. Even asked for help, but no red . Period.The color for the season is coral.The wordhas gotten around because there
were no red sweaters at Macy’s.
J. Jill, Talbot’s, Banana Republic, or Ann Taylor.
I also checked out the shoes, but did not
find any red shoes.Then I remembered
that I have a pair of red shoes at home. Well, I have 3 or 4 pairs of red

And I do have great respect for the real meaning of this holiday.Especially, Monday, the daywe consider to be Memorial Day.
But, I also have a respect for the original Memorial Day, my
birthday.We always had my birthday off
from school, May 30. And I never had to go to work on my birthday May 30.Then I got married and I think that was when
it changed.Not my birthday, but
Memorial Day. It is now always on a Monday and seldom on my birthday.
That was when my mother made lemon meringue
pie and we went on a picnic to Lincoln Park with our cousins.My mother did not teach me how to make lemon
but I happen to know at least 4 people who can make a mean lemon
Most of them are not on
facebook, so there is no need to think I am hinting.
Why would I hint for someone to make me a
lemon meringue pie for mybirthday
?My friends John and Janet gave me one
last month, and it is in the freezer.If
you come over, I will make coffee and we can celebrate together
If you still want to be patriotic, pull out your red white
and blue silverware.
You do have red
white and blue silverware don’t you?
