It's Memorial Day Monday ... banks are closed, I'm enjoying a long holiday weekend from work, and it's the unofficial kickoff for Summer vacations (tho' Memorial Day's actually this coming Friday, and the first day of summer's timed with the summer solstice; for most of the US, on June 20)! I can tell it's Summer vacation time 'cuz we're cat-sitting for both our next-door neighbors while one side's out on their boat and the other side's up at their trailer.
I've made this card to kick off Summer. Boy, doesn't it just seem like Spring started?! I swear that time speeds up exponentially as we age!
