Monday Musings - June 6, 2022


1. June has arrived and today is the first Monday of the month. There are just 29 Mondays remaining in the year as we slide towards the mid-point.

2. Today we remember D-Day, June 6, 1944.

3. Sometimes it seems that in the past, unlike today, we actually were able to identify who the bad guys were.

4. Is anyone else frustrated by the inaction and gridlock in Congress. They are arguing about minutiae while the country is being held hostage by the oil companies.

5. We were treated to a beautiful weather weekend. I worked outside most of the weekend doing odd jobs around the. house--some which have been languishing for more than a year. I even got to spend some time enjoying the pool, although the today's 59 degree morning is going to set that back a bit.

6. Today in History. On June 6, 1944, Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower gives the go-ahead for the largest amphibious military operation in history: Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of northern France, commonly known as D-Day.

By daybreak, 18,000 British and American parachutists were already on the ground. An additional 13,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the invasion. At 6:30 a.m., American troops came ashore at Utah and Omaha beaches
