A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....11-6-06....Military Monday
Billie, The Mayor

Posted on 11/05/2006 7:41:24 PM PST by The Mayor




A Few of FR's Finest
....Every Day
FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues; salute and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which we can express ourselves.
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.






A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I could no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I had been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.
Still that didn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why we've created a place for just that. This is a friendly room in JimRob's house where FReeper FRiends can gather every day and just say hello if that's all they want to do.
There's more of course. We sometimes feature different FReepers, with a little background information on who they are and what makes them who they are, along with a few photos you might not have seen on other threads; sometimes others write an essay for us to post as the feature for the day; sometimes our presentation is a human interest story found elsewhere that you might not have read; sometimes special holiday threads; but whatever the topic of the day, it is always with FR's Finest in mind and that is YOU!
If you would like to be featured, or would like to see someone else featured, please send me a private FR mail.
Every Monday we will post the photos of FR's Military Personnel that I have collected and put into groups; these will be available to view through a link the remainder of the week - every day just a click away. :)   If you would like to add a photo of yourself or a loved one in the military, past or present, please let me know; I will hold it until I have enough for a new group.
Thank you, and please have fun with us...every day! ~ Billie

Someone needs to tie something to you. You keep flitting around all over the place.

You have such an ego since you starred in "Forrest Gump."

I think I even saw you in a Harry Potter movie.

No, tying down a Soaring Feather.

May the good Lord keep under his almighty hand those that serve in harms way and not so in harms way in all our branches of service. May HIS hand be over them like a mother hen shields her chicks when danger threatens.

My heart has been feeling very light of late, also.

A Supreme Benevolence has shown how to deliver a joke with exquisite timing.


And thanks also to Jon Carry for going along with it.

"A light heart means good poetry."

Not recently!

I shamelessly ripped off "Carry Me Back To Old Viginia" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" on this thread.

Aw, gee. Thanks! I'm hoping for rain here in Maryland on Tuesday ... so I'll do a little rain dance!





Rain

Rain refreshes. Rain rewards.
Kills our thirst with liquid swords.
Washes all the dust away,
And bends the light at end of day.

Rain helps soothe us into sleep,
Cleans up the world we’re sworn to keep.
We tend to it, and it to us,
We’re well rewarded for the fuss.

Like magic mushrooms popping up,
Our food shows in the flowing cup,
A horn of plenty, our reward,
And liquid coolness from the gourd.

Rain comes by to cool our brow,
To give a rest from labors now,
While forces sent from up above,
Gently whisper, “Here’s the Love!”

NicknamedBob . . . . . Sept. 24, 2006

I would be especially appreciative of extra thoughts and prayers for our son, as he is now "in country".

My entire family thanks every Freeper for their prayers.
