Memorial Day 2009

Mondays are usually color days. I think it would be most appropriate to select our colors Red, White, and Blue to honor our brave military men and women who have given their lives for our country.

Since the year 1868, May 30th has been the actual day of Remembrance, but we celebrate it on the last Monday of May each year. Over the years, since the beginning of the holiday, many widows, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and children have decorated their soldiers grave with flowers, American flags, and wreaths to show honor to our war heroes. We certainly will not forget those who gave their lives to fight for our freedom.

The RQQ selections today are all something made in Red White and Blue. Click on the links to see the auctions. Some might be gone in a few days, so check them out soon!!

God Bless the USA!!!
