Drawing Blanks

Husbands draw a blank when he says one thing, but she hears another…he asks, “Why did you do THAT?” she hears, “You are so dumb,” and a fight begins.   Heaven forbid he mention something about her clothes on a day the scales say she gained half a pound.

I draw a blank when, after all my doodling, I sit down to actually sketch something…but…nothing.  I stare at that blank page until I realize I’d better go back to doodles.

I draw blanks at my computer screen, as well.   All those great blog posts in my head?  That’s where they still are.

Many draw a blank about Memorial Day.    Memorial Day is about our men and women in the armed forces who gave the ultimate sacrifice:

625,000 Americans killed in the Civil War.
116,000 Americans killed in WWI.
405,000 Americans killed in WWII.
36,000 Americans killed in the Korean War.
58,000 Americans killed in the Vietnam War.
2,300 Americans killed in the Afghanistan War.
4,500 Americans killed in the Iraq war. 
And all the other Americans killed in other wars.

It’s not just a day off work…but spending time with your family and friends is a great way to celebrate it.   Remember those who sacrificed so that we can eat our barbecue, burgers and hot dogs in peace in our country.
