This was the first memorial day in I don’t know how many years that I didn’t go to the Peninsula memorial day parade. It was cancelled due to the coronavirus. I started going in high school, as part of the marching band that performs there. I probably missed some years while I was in college, but started going with my dad, and it became somewhat of a tradition, which came to include a cookout with burgers afterward. Anyway, it will presumably be back next year.

Instead of the usual plans, I stayed home. I “clocked in” for work for like 20 minutes to check on things and fixed a small issue. I spent a little time outside on the nice, hot day. But most of the day was spent on a plumbing project. My kitchen sink is out of commission, has been since Saturday. The issue originally was stopped drain flow, but I broke a pipe and now have a larger project.
