Skip to comments.AMERICA - The Right Way!! (Day 2258) [Remember the Trade Center!!]
Posted on 05/29/2007 4:35:24 AM PDT by Chairman_December_19th_Society
As we settle into the nighttime of despair, fret not, for the Sun will rise again!!
We, here, will never forget those who died on September 11, 2001, as we seek to protect the Republic from all who will do her harm!!
Quick start--got to run to the other building (ok, not run--too steamy outside...).
For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.
So McConnell and Sessions are voicing wobbly thoughts about Iraq over the weekend. Heaven help us!
Thanks for the start. I trust your weekend went well.
So you watched Sunday’s game with the Tigers? That was pretty cool. Our young players are maturing, and it’s fun to see, but last night...Curt Schilling, that OLD guy, really controlled the game. LOL. Boston is tough, tough!
Yes. I’ll watch any game that doesn’t include the Braves and since our team ..well..I won’t say...
Jason is just going to have to have some straighting out on his little life and we are going to provide that to him, in fact we already are. Love solves so many problems and those he has, it will take time and much more love (if that is possible). D is going to wait to get another ‘instant’ child as all our time will be helping him and giving him the love he needs. We just ask that you keep this little fella in your prayers and if your church has a prayer group, pass his name on to them, please.
Poor ole Cindy, her boat stopped in the middle of the stream, goodness me, what will she do now, no cameras in her faces, Mic's being pushed to her mouth, thank goodness she is stopping making a fool of herself.
Done got mad at my chicks. They roost you know and have taken roosting up on my front porch. If they don’t watch it, they are going to be ROASTING on that porch.
SIL has GOT to fix my tiller, the pull rope won’t retract and my garden I will be a Forrest until then. I am cutting between the rows with the mower and have a ‘Armstrong’ tiller I use around the plants. Hey, it works.
Off to the ‘big house’ to get some cereal or something, I am hungry, out of grits (a no=no and I am guilty). I will be back shortly..
Tuesdays always feels like a Monday whenever there is a Monday holiday.
Belated thanks for all the pings over the weekend!
Thanks for the links, Molly! Although, I have to say that I don’t understand the WSJ’s vendetta lately against NRO’s stance against illegal immigration; it mystifies me.
I think the Tuesday after a Monday holiday is BOTH Monday AND Tuesday, since that much work has piled up. I dread the mail dump on days like these. . .
That does it. I am coming home next week and I will let him have a piece of my mind. He will hear from me.
I'm mad now.
Yesterday, my son Jack again played taps at the Purcellville American Legion Memorial Day Observance. This was the third year in a row and the turn out this year was disgraceful! There were only about 30 people there. Apparently, not many wanted to interrupt their barbecues, yard work and other holiday activities to give 15 minutes to remember those who served.
I guess it is while "All gave some and some gave all", what have they done for us lately, drives the average American.
My son's band teacher who was also obviously disappointed, took Jack aside and indicated an elderly veteran wearing a 101st Airborne baseball cap and told him that his musical efforts meant so much to that old man, that it made the whole experience worthwhile. I agree, and I know that my son's Grandfather and Great-Grandfathers were there in spirit and looked upon him with great pride and approval.
Folks, our deceased Veterans never gave up the faith in us...why have we given up the faith in them?
End of disgusted rant.
I am moving slow this morning...had a full day yesterday, went to two Memorial Day services, spent the afternoon at Metamora..an old canal town, that has been turned into lots of quaint, lovely shops. Toby, they even have a mill that grinds corn and they sell freshly ground corn meal and GRITS!! I thought of you when I saw that.
Lysie, I loved your idea for floating impatiences....let me know if it works out, I think it should.
Prayers for all who need them....especially Z, hope he is feeling much better today.
You are right though that so many folks get caught up in their “living” they don’t take the time to remember those who gave so much. It is a sad commentary on our times.
RD, your son did well, whether playing for 1 or 1000!
Jemian, this Sessions business was mentioned briefly by Bennett...Sunday talk show stuff, so let's wait and see if he keeps it up. But letting him know of our war support certainly won't hurt.
Molly, Metamora is pretty neat, it is in a busy place over Holiday week-ends.... closed on Monday and Tuesday. The state runs part of it, the historical canal and mill. The state provides rides on a canal boat pulled by two Belgian (sp) mares. Not too far from Metamora is the Hearthside restaurant..which has good food and a lovely setting too.
Anyone interested in this canal town, here is their web site:
I’m going to check with my sister to see if she’s ever been there. Thanks for the link, Bee.
We have out first meeting of the Golden Cross Club today to set out guidelines of what we are going to do, ALL Christians are invited, regardless of denomination, joining is Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour.We meet at a popular eating place for the buffet in Gulfport. I pray that it catches on.
Did you that rain, Toby?
I've been weeding, and watering again...one more trip to the garden store, and I'll be a happy gardener!
Is it safe??
Yep! How’re you?
In regards to Memorial Day observance... We had the most people turn out this year for our observance than I have seen in a while. Not as many as it could, but it's a start!
Managed to take a nap.
Here it is 5:15 and just a light rain has started falling, we need some bad too.
Hope that rain comes thru for you Toby.
I'm going to listen to Frank Gaffney on Hewitt's show while I get ready for a friend to come over for short visit in awhile.
See y'all tomorrow!
SIX forms of ID??? That is crazy. I’m glad you yelled.
How is your mother?
GC, that is very good. I’m so glad that you got it organized and have begun. So many good ideas don’t come to fruition because they are just never begun. How many people did you have?
General announcement: I won’t be here much today. My bronchitis, while responding to some meds, is fighting back! I am very tired.
Boy, is it dry down here in paradise. Lost some bushes and flowers since we’ve been away.
Feel better soon, dear one!
Just do it by mail
Hi! I watched ‘Band of Brothers’ yesterday on the History channel. Excellent series, I still haven’t seen the whole thing yet. I need to buy the DVDs of it.
Toby, your Golden Cross Club sounds wonderful...Christian fellowship is a great joy, and there is are so many in a need of it.
Keep us updated on how it goes, will you?
Had 11 to show up, tell ya all about it in the A.M.
I think a lot of the population spends too much time listening to cnn and the like. I’m surprised there are so many Americans who really don’t even think of Memorial Day, except it’s a “day off”. I see it in our little town. It’s sad.
37 post today. Heck, I remember when there were 37 posts to this thread in the first ten minutes of appearing on the forum. I'm so cynical these days...
Hang in there. You’re needed now more than ever.
You are a sweetheart. I hope you are doing well. Please tell JT thanks for me.
I will tell him that. I like it that I can stay in touch with him on a regular basis. I appreciate your son playing TAPS at the service. Real music is so much more sincere than a tape.
I’m doing fine other than this bronchitis. I have literally had this sickness in one form or another since right before Christmas. Sometimes it has been a cold, other times it is just nasal congestion. Now it’s bronchitis which is leaving me extremely weak. We think it is the reason I had the leukemia scare. I had become so used to the sickness that for a time I was asymptomatic.
I’m now on yet another powerful antibiotic. Hopefully this and the change of location next week will knock it out of the system.
How was the cookout for the world?
Tea, please, lysie.
Can’t see my breakie.......Big red X.
Feeling any better, Jem?
So, you’re coming this way soon? Just you?
One good thing....our 37 posts are better than the Presidents poll numbers and after yesterdays speech...his poll numbers will plunge even lower.
It will be me and the Youngest. She needs to tour the Vet School and get her driver’s license and work with horses. I need a change of scenery. Something here is keeping me ill and perhaps with a long summer break I’ll get better.
JTill, if I’m up your way, I’ll send you a freepmail and perhaps we could meet.
I forgot to add; I am seeing a slight improvement this evening. This morning I was beginning to wonder. I didn’t have energy enough to walk across the room!
Neets, how is Zay?
What did the President say?
