MONDAY MORNING QUESTION

Monday Morning Question from;

What is the strangest thing in your refrigerator?

I just checked it out and there's really nothing in there that's out of place.  I have the usual food items in there.  Now, I do keep the bread in the fridge....is that strange?  I do it because, especially in the summer when it's warm, bread tends to get moldy and I get real upset when I want a piece of toast and the bread is covered in mold.  I find if I keep it in the refrigerator, it may get slightly stale but at least it's not moldy.   I have no fishing bait in there like my journal buddy, Jan, over in the U.K. that's for sure !   

Today, being Memorial Day...I wanted to do something special on that theme.  But, then in thinking about it....I decided everyday should be Memorial Day.   We should never forget those who have given the supreme sacrifice for our freedoms.  I dare say there are some countries, even in this day and age, where people can not get on line and express themselves in a public forum like our Internet journals.  Even the freedom to disagree with or bash our public officials is an act that brings imprisonment or death in some countries.  We take so much for granted at times.  Let us never forget that "Freedom Is Never Free."       I do want to mention and honor the 137 military service members from the state of Washington or from bases in the state who have given their lives in the global war on terrorism.   I think especially of their families and friends who's lives will never be the same because of their loss.         Linda

I always keep my bread in the fridge for the same reason as you! Living alone it takes quite a while to get through a whole loaf! No, we should never forget what the military have done for us, protecting our freedom. Jeannette xx

Hi Linda,  I`m thinking about my fridge and if there`s anything strange there....Oh yes, I keep a gel filled eye mask there so it`s really cold and soothing when I use it.  Also one of Roman`s teethers is there for the same reason. :o)

On reading and following your Journal with much interest,they say you learn something every day!!
Well then I just learned something.The first time I visited my son in Dallas.
I searched for such a long while, for the bread for breakfast,whilst him and his wife were alseep still.
Now I know why????????? I finally found it in the fridge and I will admit I did think it was a strange place to keep it LOL!!!!
I never thought to ask them the reason. LOL!!
Thanx for bringing back memories of my visit to them .
Regards Astoriasand.
