Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.
I got a woo hoo from tanniker.
Medium rare is fine, thanks. I hope you like Pinot Noir and Single Malt Scotch. We’re having The MacAllan tonite - one of my faves.
I wanted to thank you all for the prayers over the last few days. Just to update you, I had surgery today and the doctor said he removed the whole lump. He seems prettypositive that the results will be benign, but I won’t get the results until next Thursday.
Thanks again for the prayers ans support.
If we keep this up we might be able to write our own Canteen Useful Hints book

All I did was make 'em up on the computer's regular old "paint" program...the one in "Accessories." She's a balloon head with sprayed on hair.
Frau Nussmann kindly told me how to give 'em a "properties" name by saving each of them on the Fotki website. Simple!
This Day in U.S. Military History April 2
1865 - After a ten-month siege, Union forces under Ulysses S. Grant capture the trenches around Petersburg, Virginia, and Confederate General Robert E. Lee leads his troops on a desperate retreat westward. The ragged Confederate troops could no longer maintain the 40-mile network of defenses that ran from southwest of Petersburg to north of Richmond, the Rebel capital 25 miles north of Petersburg. Through the winter, desertion and attrition melted Lee’s army down to less than 60,000, while Grant’s army swelled to over 120,000. Grant attacked Five Forks southwest of Petersburg on April 1, scoring a huge victory that cut Lee’s supply line and inflicted 5,000 casualties. The next day, Lee wrote to Confederate President Jefferson Davis, “I think it absolutely necessary that we should abandon our position tonight...” Grant’s men attacked all along the Petersburg front. In the predawn hours, hundreds of Federal cannon roared to life as the Yankees bombarded the Rebel fortifications. Said one soldier, “the shells screamed through the air in a semi-circle of flame.” At 5:00 in the morning, Union troops silently crawled toward the Confederates, shrouded in darkness. Confederate pickets alerted the troops, and the Yankees were raked by heavy fire, but the determined troops poured forth and began overrunning the trenches. Four thousand Union troops were killed or wounded, but a northern officer wrote, “It was a great relief, a positive lifting of a load of misery to be at last let at them.” Confederate General Ambrose Powell Hill, a corps commander in the Army of Northern Virginia and one of Lee’s most trusted lieutenants, rode to the front to rally his men. As he approached some trees with his aide, two Union soldiers emerged and fired, killing Hill instantly. Hill had survived four years of war and dozens of battles only to die during the final days of the Confederacy. When Lee received the news, he quietly said “He is at rest now, and we who are left are the ones to suffer.” By nightfall, President Davis and the Confederate government were in flight and Richmond was on fire. Retreating Rebel troops set ablaze several huge warehouses to prevent them from being captured by the Federals and the fires soon spread. With the army and government officials gone, bands of thugs roamed the streets looting what was left.
When you first joined FR, do you remember when you discovered that you could bookmark threads? Did you go through a period when you bookmarked a lot of threads.
Well, they're still bookmarked. And if you're like me, you probably really aren't going to back and reread all those "Recount Fraud" threads from 2000.
It's probably time to check your profile and start cleaning house.

1 Timothy 6:17-19
Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share. 1 Timothy 6:18
Cindy Kienow, who works at a popular restaurant in Hutchinson, Kansas, had been waiting on one of her steady customers for 3 years. He always tipped her well, sometimes leaving as much as half the tab. Then he outdid himselfhe gave her a $10,000 tip for a $26 meal. He told her, I want you to know this is not a joke. What an amazing display of radical generosity!
Paul advised Timothy to encourage the wealthy in his congregation to display radical generosity (1 Tim. 6:18). Timothy ministered in the prosperous city of Ephesus, where certain members of the church were wealthy. Some of these people didnt understand their responsibility to the kingdom of God. So Paul challenged Timothy to remind them that having great wealth carried great responsibility. That included being humble, finding their security in God, not in riches, and using their money to do good. How they handled their money revealed the condition of their heart.
Even if were not wealthy, God has called us to radical generosity. We can share what we do have and be rich in good deeds. If we have a generous attitude about money, we are much more likely to be generous in other matters concerning the Lords people and His work.
Well, that is a good hint.
Let’s see how many really do that, ok?
Ya wanna share some popcorn
while we peruse the "hints and tips"? :D
