Posted on 12/15/2010 4:30:52 PM PST by trooprally
19 FReepers, lurkers, friends and family along with 5 Vets from WWII to Iraq attended the DC Chapters 2010 Christmas Party.
After a week of strong winds and temps hovering in the low 30s, the wind calmed and temps rose into the 40s, we gathered last Saturday at Lurker Bills house. Note, Lurker Bill is a REAL lurker, he does not have a screen name. L. Bill is a regular at Walter Reed, bring a ton of signs, flags, banners and good music. During the winter he brings a generator to run the propane heaters blower. And then gets up early to join us at Olney to FReep the Quakers. L. Bill is also a Soldiers Angel. For Trooprallys sons first deployment to Iraq, L. Bills package beat our sons wifes package to him.
So a to Lurker Bill, his wife and their daughter for opening up their house and all they do for us FReepers and our troops.
Our Vets were a mixed bag spanning 4 major wars. Glenn, USMC, was on Iwo Jima. Dave, Army, was in the Pacific preparing to invade Japan when the bombs were dropped. He counts his blessings very day that the U.S. did not have to invade Japan. Halsey, USMC, is a Korean War Vet. Carl is a Vietnam Vet. And Chad, Army and a FReeper, was in Iraq.
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS: BufordP was the pool king. Sensei Ern was the Wii master. 3 of Sarah Palins recent book for the White Elephant Gift Steal game received the biggest laugh. Lots of real good food and dessert. Blueberry Pie (inside joke). Army/Navy-Marine Game rivalry.
A lively discussion ensued when it was discovered that one of the attendees was a TSA agent. Lots of jokes, some TSA tales.
Pictures from the Christmas Party.
And the BufordP!
And a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL from the DC Chapter
PS - We will be out at Walter Reed on Friday Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. Join us.
Yea, we only invite you when we need you to stand in the cold FReeping some a$$hat moonbats. For fun things down here you can stay up there and freeze your butt off. /smiling
As Sarah Palin says, I think it was her, MAN UP Nan!! and quit your crying. Just be sure your worms are cooked to the correct temp or the food police will be out there arresting you. Is there a worm thermometer? Hate to see you using a turkey thermometer.
We ALL love you, we just love you more when you stay home. You and rlmorel should start a whiners club. No Kleenex boxes to throw around as in the commercial.
Merry Christmas back at you.
Dang, we already have all the Kennedy ghost here, do we need any more.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO THE DC CHAPTER !!!!
Ouch! Prayers for fast healing.....AND DON’T DO THAT AGAIN!
Ha! Kennedy ghosts are pikers. Byrd’s ghost comes with his own sheet.
Dang, I am on both yours and Santa’s naughty list. I would prefer to be on [Mrs] T’s “naughty” list. Lot more fun.
LOL to both posts.
Definitely missesd you DollyCali. Next year, ok?!
I still have two more surgeries on my skin around my left eye.
All this time and nobody took that as a user name?
Hope all goes well and there is no or at least minimal scaring. Please keep us apprised of your status even if by private FRmail.
If you are not already doing so, take 250mg to 500mg of Vitamin C every 6 hours or so, more if you smoke. Also take up to 400 IU of Vitamin E, natural if possible. Get a bottle of 100 IUs and increase by 100 every 3 or 4 days. Can cause a sudden drop in blood pressure if you start high immediately. Both C and E are essential for wound healing.
The ugly Keloid scars that black people often get are due to a Vitamin E deficiency, so if you have any black troops in with you tell them about this. Also, once the skin has formed you can spread E directly on the skin to improve healing. Also good for aging skin. ;-) I am 72. My son is doing his 20 in Special Forces. Thank you for your service, and Merry Christmas!!
Thank your son for me.
Thank your son for me.
Hey Gramma who is near to my age. We seem to have some things in common. My hubby is also Korean Vet. Marine. I would have given the same advice for the burns. I hold to natural cures in everything possible. I am 77 and healthy and still holding a full-time job. I take vitamins and herbs after doing the research on them. Vit C & E are essential to good health. Throw in D3 and you’re pretty well protected from nasty bugs. (I enjoyed meeting you via your profile page. Wish more people would create them).
I missed your news yesterday!
I am sorry to hear you have been burned...chemical?
I did not get to see you this summer...hope you are fine and we meet next year. Family too!
I read the advice you were getting about healing and agree you need extra vitamins, but do not forget to have lots of protein too...worked for me after that accident and lots of healing was needed!
Sounds like you will have time to be on FR, I will be looking for you!
I’m using my Droid.
