I was excited to learn that we were going to take a road trip! Memorial Day weekend is a three-day Holiday so we plan to take a mostly unplanned short trip. We’ve lived in Florida for six years now and we’ve never been to Key West.
For those unfamiliar with Memorial Day, it is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and commemorates men and women who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the beginning of summer.
When Shirley, my adopted human, was growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana, it was the day of the Indianapolis 500. She lived close to the Speedway, but has never been to the race.
