FReeper Canteen ~ Fabulous Friday
March 1, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:05:30 PM PST by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

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.

Remember the Good Old Days?
Sock Hops?
Drive-in Movies?
Buddy Holly?
Or other things that made it Fabulous?
You know, before cellphones?
Come on in and share your memories.
Or take a trip back in time.

Let's start with the 1950.

First Modern Credit Card Introduced
In 1949, Frank X. McNamara thought of a way for customers
to have just one credit card that they could use at multiple stores.
McNamara discussed the idea with two colleagues
and the three pooled some money and started a new company in 1950
which they called the Diners Club.

First "Peanuts" Cartoon Strip
The very first Peanuts comic strip, written by Charles M. Schulz,
appeared in seven newspapers on October 2, 1950.

Number One Hit
8 July 1950 ~ Mona Lisa ~ (Nat "King" Cole)

here

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

Today it was beautiful.

I’m off the weekend so it will rain.

Maybe I need to spend a weekend with you so it will rain the whole time.

Tempting to say the least.

Unfortunately, they are saying tomorrow is going to be a humdinger for weather.

Thunderstorms, potentially tornadic.
