Happy Holiday!

Oh come on, you didn't know it was Bunker Hill Day? Today commemorates the 1775 battle with the British known as The Battle of Bunker Hill. It also means that schools, libraries, and city, county, and state offices in Suffolk County are closed today. And it means that I get the day off!

I plan on celebrating by dressing up the dogs in Revolutionary War garb and having them re-enact the battle on the front lawn. Should be fun.

Ok, so I know this post is going nowhere. I've picked up some sort of bug and although I am sitting at home in my computer room, my head is floating off somewhere in the kitchen. I will more than likely spend my day on the couch, watching television and trying to drown out the noise of the muskets. So much for celebrating.

Thanks for the encouragement you left for me!
