Enjoy summertime treats

June 2, 2013
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER - Food Writer ( , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Summer is finally here, I think! I may have angered Mother Nature by welcoming June a day too early. The weather has been somewhat questionable during the week leading up to Memorial Day. Parades did go on even if it wasn't the best condition for the folks in the parade or for the treatment of musical instruments. Memorial Day Weekend is one of those holidays that we do a lot of reflecting on our country's past as well as our family's past. We give thanks for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice as well as for all those who put their lives in danger to keep us free. It is a time for reflection on America's history as well as on the history of our own families. We honor all those who have passed on with flags and flowers and some tears, too. It is hard to go visit one's family and go to the cemetery to do it. We know they are not actually there, but we talk to them anyway and hope an angel hears us and relays our words and continued love.
