The last monday of May is Memorial Day, a time to commemorate and remember all the military people we have lost. May we one day put an end to this senseless loss of life.
On a brighter note, the last weekend of May is also a great time to relax and enjoy those wonderful houseboating moments with family and friends. What kind of boating activities do you have planned for your weekend?
