In March, we had April weather. In April, we had March weather. Now that we are in May, I hope that warmer weather will return. Rain can help with the grass and plants in the yard. Before the month is over, I expect much warmer weather. We are getting close to Memorial Day, when we pay our respects to those who have given their lives in the service of our country and honor those who have more recently served. Veterans from World War II are quickly leaving us. It won't be long before all will have passed on. Our veterans served us so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we enjoy today. Take the time to thank a veteran or a person in the military service for all that they have done for us.
