How Great Is Memorial Day?

The first leg of the Big 3 summer holidays and the true kick off to summer might be the best. Why? Because you still have the rest of the summer after this. The anticipation and full potential is always a better feeling than actually living through it, or especially on Labor Day when Summer is on its last breaths. Our cups runneth over, literally and figuratively, with great possibilities this time of year.

"Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very heaven!"
 -William Wordsworth
Right you are, Bill! He may have been referring to the French Revolution and the upheaval of the old order, but we undergo a bit of an upheaval of our own every year as the old regime of harsh Northeast winter and spring slowly crumbles. To be alive and young is very heaven!Fittingly, the forecast for this weekend is like low 60s and rainy. But I'm not going to let that dampen my mood. I'm going to let the good times roll and enjoy the fact that the entire summer lies ahead. Allow Keith Apicary and Flo Rida to illustrate how I'll be enjoying the weekend.

Happy Memorial Day to everyone! 

Memorial Day ADDENDUM:

With all the comedy show chatter on this blog recently, there's extra reason to celebrate this weekend as the 4th season of Arrested Development comes out all at once on Netflix on Sunday. I'm going to go as far as to say that AD is #3 funniest show of all time if Seinfeld and The Office are 1 and 2 in either order. This is only the 4th season and it probably won't go past 5, so it's a little Barry Sanders-esque in longevity but anyone who enjoyed the other two needs to give this one a hard look. Enjoy!
