Memorial Day 2013

Memorial_Day_2013

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S.A.

This holiday has evolved over time to become synonymous with backyard BBQs or with folks heading to the beach.  Typically, a day off from work spent with family and friends.  Everyone appreciates and definitely deserves a three-day weekend, so enjoy !!

Memorial Day also signifies the start of summer! Let’s make it a great one!

Whatever you decide to or have to do today, please remember to take a moment to think of  those that have died in service  to our great nation.

A little 80’s nostalgia to start your day 🙂

I remember many of the items in this list 50 things only 80’s kids can understand but a few things I have to admit I was hazy on..(like the seltzer-water ad).
I also believe there was a slight oversight on the toys of the time.. Cabbage Patch Kids, Care Bears, My Little Pony and Pound Puppies could have been mentioned (as well as Rainbow Brite & Strawberry Shortcake!). However, overall, I loved this list as it brought back a great deal of fond memories!

Do you remember the items on this list? Which was your most memorable? Your most loved or disliked? Share your thoughts! Have a great day everyone!
