Posted on 05/14/2011 9:10:44 PM PDT by kburi
A very good Friday evening with lots of activity on the corners and from the passing cars. Americans continuously show their support through waves and honks. 14 of us took over the corners and actually had Trooprally searching for a spot to smoke a cigar.
Although it was overcast, we had mild weather for the 317th consecutive Friday night at Walter Reed. One small bus tonight. It was filled with waving soldiers and family members. As the bus turned into Walter Reed, it was met with waving flags and chants of USA, USA. It is always good to see their response.
Jessica brought Maria, who is waiting for her boyfriend, a Marine 2Lt. to finish The Basic Course at Quantico. We hope to see her on future Friday nights.
Throughout the evening, two delicious pizzas and chocolate chip cookies helped us forget it was Friday the 13th.

I am so glad to see the report...and all the familiar smiling faces, as well as a new one!
Thank you all!
Ooh-rah!! Mr. Trooprally, legs, what was the preferred smoke for the evening. I’m guessing something not quite so robust as your choice for Friday nights a few weeks ago.
Dark wrap cigars are too robust for FReepers around me, green wrap gives me a head rush, but brown or tan are just right.
Garcia Vegas are the best of the inexpensive cigars.
The best cigar I ever smoked, even better than the few Cubans I have been given over the years, are Saudi cigars. We had a FReeper that was an interpreter for the Saudi Embassy and he got me a handful. They had a black wrap and were about 5 inches long. Real smooth, no after burn, no head rush and FReepers around me also enjoyed the aroma.
Yipper, looks like our patriotism beat out Friday the 13th blues. 14 patriots and Idaho this night, great night. Us guys were outnumbered by the ladies if you count Idaho.
With so many FReepers tonight I was able to visit 3 of 4 corners. On Lurker Bill’s corner the traffic light pole had been removed and two temporary lights put up. The view from on coming cars was effectively block allowing only one patriot to stand there. Lurker Bill could not set up his usual banner. he adapted and over came the situation with a smaller on that needed only one pole to support it.
Thanks for the AAR.
Thank you for the great AAR, kburi. Looks like a lively bunch. Glad to see so many of you and so few of the low-lifes. God bless you each and every one.
Hey adorable you. The graphic is perfect.
If I ever was lucky enough to make it there on a Friday, I would have to check to see which way the wind was blowing. Nice to see Mrs. T for a change. She’s so pretty, I wish she was in the pictures more. I know she is faithful to her mission to provide us with the pictorial evidence and we are grateful to her.
Ha. You’re camera shy. Me too. But your really are photogenic. I’m always happy to see you.
Thank you so much. Hope to see you before WR closes. Looks like great weather this weekend.
The olny FREE LOADER is OCRAP and he takes from True American. When that runs out then he will just print more.
OK, OK, I made a mistake in the Title.
It should be Week 317, not 316.
After all, Trooprally, it was Friday the 13th, and those things happen on......
Another awesome report.
Keep up the good work.
