So here we are at Memorial Day weekend. It's a time for friends, family get together, drinking copious amounts of beer and eating your fair share of hamburgers, hot dogs and other assorted meat provisions - Just ask my buddy Mo Vaughn.It is also a time to remember the countless soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice - their lives, so that we may be free.So while we enjoy this weekend - whether we are watching the game or at the mall shopping or just doing nothing, take a moment and just realize how lucky we are to be living in a free country.- Rustyjr " Happy Memorial Day !!"And now .... ON WITH THE INFAMY !!!!!Happy Birthday wishes go out to Dyar Miller (1946).
