Have Fun But Remember – Usually if you’ve actually gotten down this far in the Daybreak Doppler you’re expecting to read some opinion or occasionally insight I have on something sports related.  This morning I have nothing really to comment on in the way of Brewers, Packers, Badgers, Bucks or Golden Eagles.  All I do want to say is get out there and have fun over the long weekend but take a moment to remember why we have Memorial Day in the first place.  My annual tradition, small as it may be, is to buy a new US flag each year over this weekend, hang it up & then take a moment to thank all those who have made putting up that new flag possible with their ultimate sacrifice.  I then usually will go back to drinking beer on my deck, which in some ways is also possible for the same reasons as hanging that new flag.

One programming note, there will not be a Daybreak Doppler on Memorial Day Monday because no one will be around to read it, we’ll be back on schedule starting Tuesday.  So to all I wish you pleasant Memorial Day Weekend & we’ll catch you back here Tuesday morning.

    Well said re: why we have Memorial Day in the first place. Thank you Wally. I’ve noticed the American flag that proudly waves above my mailbox has been looking a bit faded, I think I’ll follow your tradition and put up a new one this weekend. And a heartfelt “thank you” to all who serve and have served, and to everyone…..have a safe and fun long weekend!
