Before we begin today, I want to give everyone a heads up about the next time we meet for T. If you look on your calendar, you will see next Tuesday is the 2nd. The problem is, I always post my T Stands for Tuesday post Monday afternoon at 4 pm my time. However, it is already Tuesday in places like Brisbane, as Bridget will confirm.
week is also the Second on the 2nd, which lands on Tuesday. I always
post that at midnight my time (CDT, -0500 UTC/GMT) on the first Tuesday of the month. Of
course, by that time, it's late Tuesday afternoon in other places.
It's that pesky International Dateline that gets in the way, and how it affects those
who are on the "other" side of it. So be aware, there will be two
Tuesday posts next week. T Stands for Tuesday on Monday afternoon as
usual, where you will share a drink related post, and Second on the 2nd, where
you are asked to share a favorite post (ANY POST) from the past. I'm
fairly certain mine will revolve around tea.
But, for now, I'm not here. I'm elsewhere. It's still Memorial Day when this post goes live. Memorial Day (originally called Decoration Day) is a Federal holiday in the USA. It's when we honor those who died for our country. It should not be confused with Veterans Day, which is celebrated under various names (such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day) in the US and around the world. Veterans Day is November 11 and when we honor any and all who have served in the military. Memorial Day is for those who have given their lives for their country, my country, the United States of America.
You can see there's no hostess to greet you, there's no tea,
nothing that looks like a mug I can drink from,
and certainly no drink here! I am visiting various friends and placing flowers on my Grandparents graves. And just because I'm not here at the moment, doesn't mean I won't be around to visit as soon as I get home. So, please link your drink related post below and I'll be by just as soon as I get home and kiss and hug Bleubeard and Squiggles.
