Just a Note....

Our daughter Eliza is off at basic training for the National Guard at Fort Jackson, SC. This should be great for her. She needs to gain some discipline in her life. Probably due to my spoiling her for 18 years. She wants to go into med-corp as a medic. She will graduate on Dec. 17th and we hope to be there for that as we were for Jeremiah.

National Flag for Fallen Warriors Unveiled

Check out this website.

The Mission:
To create, establish and promote a nationally recognized flag that would fly continuously as a visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms. All Military lives lost not only in action but also in service, from our nation's inception.

Please give them your support and sign the petition.


First Snow

It snowed late last night and early this morning. Just a dusting and most of it melted this afternoon. Temps are going back up so it'll melt but it will be back. We're leaving for California a couple of days before Thanksgiving and when we come back we'll probably go through Fort Jackson, SC where Eliza will be graduating from basic training. We got a couple of kittens recently. We needed more barn cats since the neighbor's dog comes after them. What else? Oh yeah, there's a new Lee Ann Womack album coming out. I think I'll get it.

The Weather's Changing

This is posted on Weatherunderground this week:

Columbus Day
Mostly cloudy. Slight chance of rain and snow showers in the morning...then slight chance of rain showers in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 40s. West winds 10 to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation 20 percent.

See it? Yeah, snow. I tell you, up here in the northland, the seasons don't waste any time with changing. two weeks of spring and two of fall. everything else is summer (just long enough to make you forget what winter was like) and winter (long enough so you forget what being warm was and when did we last have a summer?)

okay, it's comming quickly. Enjoy your San Diego and Alabama readers.
