On Memorial Day weekend, you should get together with friends. I'm glad we have friends who are generous enough to invite us over.
You should have a special cold beverage to sip while you chat.
Your kids should make a secret clubhouse somewhere in the backyard.
There should be grilled meats and baked beans and fresh herbs.
The sun should shine and the heat should remind you that summer is here.
Kids should run in and out of the house to get lemonade refills and always forget to close the door behind them.
By that standard, we just had a perfect Memorial Day afternoon. Thanks, friends.
