1. COWARDLY %$#!!: My OUTRAGE that Ssgt Blue-Eyes' neighbor had his vehicle broken into with many items stolen, and the one person who witnessed this crime didn't even call 911! The "victim" has the Purple Heart / Wounded Combat Vet plates on his pov and they are impossible to miss so it REALLY PISSES ME OFF that some coward would deliberately target a soldier. More on that as soon as I can type in language that is befitting the lady that I try to be.
2. The Battle of New Orleans: This video clip (which is VERY truthful and therefore not at all PC,) was sent to me by a friend who I worked with when we were taking in medical evacuees from Katrina. I spent some time deciding if I should post it due to it's content, but you know what? Sometimes the truth hurts and that doesn't make it any less truthful. It should be up by this evening.
3. My new word for the day: "Static Discharge." (Ok, so it's two words!) I experienced this phenomenon while flying home last night and I have to tell you, it was something that made me wonder if I was going to have to open that "emergency exit" door that I try to sit next to on any commercial flight. Fortunately, we had one of those excellent pilots who in his best "radio voice" immediately addressed the passengers to explain what had just happened and calm those who insisted we were just hit by lightening. Now that I know what it was, I'm thinking how cool it would be to experience it again, but hey, I'm strange like that.
4. The soldier who pumped my gas: While at Ft. Someplace, I bought some earrings that are the insignia of my Dad's old division when he was in Korea. A soldier presently in that division saw them and insisted that I not put gas in the car because he wanted to do it for me to say "thanks" for supporting him and his brethren in such a manner. We're talking a class act here folks and I can't wait to brag about this guy.
Anyway, I hope to have all these posts up soon and till then, y'all be safe!
