Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO THE

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities

DC Metroland Weather Report

~ Today...Sunny. Highs in the upper 50s.
Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.

~ Tonight...Mostly clear. Lows around 40.
Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph...
Diminishing to around 5 mph after midnight.

Making Z Zoup
A pinch of this...a dash of that...

Over 40 percent of the women in the U.S.
were in the Girl Scouts organization.
Two-thirds of the women listed in "Who's Who of Women"
were Girl Scouts.

No one can drown in the Dead Sea.
It is 25 percent salt, which makes the water very heavy.

Medical experts have observed that people who stutter
rarely do when they are alone or talking to a pet.

In Syria, Christmas gifts are distributed by one of the Wise Men's camels.
The gift-giving camel is said to have been the smallest one in the Wise Men's caravan.

Ok, still not feeling well
so I'm going to get a couple things done
then head back home.

This means I'm going to make my rounds quickly.
But, please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!

Come in and sit for a while.

There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

PLEASE REMEMBER THEM ....

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

BTTT

BTW, our area is in a Moderate risk for severe weather on Saturday. Here is the Saturday severe weather outlook.

The wording in this outlook is rather scary to say the least.

Good morning, EG ((HUGS))

We had only a small rain shower yesterday, which did nothing to really water the plants. Still fire hazard for our area.

Stay safe.
