First, let me say to all of you on this Memorial Day, remember all the military people that served, are serving, or especially the ones that gave their lives in the line of duty. Also, remember all who have passed on. When I was growing up, my parents took me and we went to several grave yards where close relatives were interned. Always put flags on the graves of ones who had been veterans along with flowers on all, especially my grandparents’ graves.
Now, I have previously covered the simple phrases, “why not” and “what if”, so now I want to cover one other simple phrase, “why did I do that?” This is probably one of my most used phrases. Why, because I do things that later have caused me pain in one way or another or it made matters worse. You know what I am talking about, like locking your house or car with the keys inside, lifting something that is way too heavy for your back, or saying something negative to your spouse. Why oh why did I do that! Sometimes you know right away and sometimes it takes a matter of hours or the next day. The fallout can last quite awhile, especially if it is something you said to your spouse (grin). Now, why did I say that? My wife reads my blog sometimes.
