Memorial Day Spark & Awww Mondays



Kitties Blue and I decided to remember those who served and lost their lives for our country with today’s Spark. I also thought Maya Angelou’s quote appropriate as recognition for all those serving our country on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

Astrid, Mau and Sawyer are representing Kitties Blue today and are joining the Awww Mondays blog hop. If you’d like to join them, click on the badge below to be whisked away to Comedy-Plus, our host.


We know Memorial Day is a big day for bar-b-ques, picnics, beach visits and family gatherings. If you are planning on participating in any of these type of events, please be careful and follow the CDC guidelines on social distancing, mask wearing and not gathering in groups of more than 10. Each of you and your families are very important to us, and we don’t want any of you to get the virus.

We just stayed home and enjoyed the summery day.
Petcretary said it was good not to have to be at her work…the nursing home is not a fun place these days with all the restrictions and the little old peeps there do not do well with the mask stuff…to keep them on, or for us to have them on…

What a great way to spend Memorial Day.
I really liked Maya Angelou but when I heard her speak at a meet and greet at the college where I was going I liked her more. I was so glad our professor took us to hear her speak.
Great quote.

We’ll never forget those who gave everything for our freedoms.

Happy Memorial Day. Maya Angelou often has the “best” things to say about ANY occasion or event and this is no exception. We hope everyone does the right thing today and enjoys a day of remembrance without taking a chance on their health. Hope your day is fabulous………!!

Love, Teddy and Mom too
