Among all her other responsibilities, Katie also reminded me that Wendy Davis had written a lovely post recently inquiring about her health, and that I had promised Wendy I would post some photos. I thought some ball-chasing action stills would be great, but Lucy was being a ball hog and Katie said the heat and her slightly wilted ‘do made it all a bit unseemly. So she opted for her world-famous hydrangea impression (above). It’s so nuanced and life-like I bet you can’t spot Katie among the hydrangeas.

While conservatives are whining about Obama not going to Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Day, they’re missing the fullness of the celebration. Accounts of the earliest Memorial Day celebration (years before they celebrated it at Arlington) note that the day included a march of veterans, speeches, decorating graves, and a barbecue. That’s right: a barbecue.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can celebrate Memorial Day without one. YMMV (Your Menu May Vary), but you have to fire up the grill to really celebrate Memorial Day the way the founders intended.
