WELCOME TO THE


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

Good morning, Everyone. Good morning to


Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

Now for our local DC Metroland weather report

~ Today...Cloudy. A chance of showers this morning...
Then a chance of showers
with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.
Highs in the mid 70s. West winds 5 to 10 mph.
Chance of rain 50 percent.

~ Tonight... Mostly cloudy.
Showers with a chance of thunderstorms in the evening...
Then a chance of showers after midnight.
Lows in the mid 50s. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph.
Chance of rain 80 percent.

I'm beginning to think that April showers are a little late this year.
Sure having a rainy spring...
not that I'm complaining.
Loving the mild temps too.

You Are Focused
You know what you want, and you know how to go after it. You feel equipped for whatever may happen.
You are good at putting things together and following directions. You stay focused.

You lay the groundwork for months or years before you act. You like to be completely and totally prepared.
You are a late bloomer, and you may be coming into your own right now. You're still figuring out who you are.
The Hummingbird Test

Hmmm, strange...this is very close - IMO
- but would never have associated it with a hummer.

But, you stay right where you are.
Keep the troops and their families entertained.

The Canteen is

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

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.

Happy Wednesday Everyone
I Wish You A Great Day

You Are Ambitious

You are dominant and powerful. You always need to be in charge, and it's difficult for you to let go of control.
When you fall for someone, you fall hard. You are a true romantic and idealist.

You are goal oriented, both for work and personal self-improvements. You like having benchmarks.
You know what you want, and you're not quick to change your mind. You have strong opinions that are set in stone.

Good morning to our valiant Troops, to our Vets, to our Families, our FRiends, our Allies and to all Canteen Denizens!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe, especially those in combat!



Staff Sgt. Nathan Stocking from Lima Company, 3rd Battalion 5th Marines, checks on his junior Marines as they take up shooting positions on the rooftop of a mud home for the night. The Marines were setting in on a position to monitor insurgent movements through the night.

Well, it's going OK. They're forecasting highs in the 70's today. Good day to do some stuff outside.

I did get all the Windows Updates downloaded yesterday. There were 13 updates in all. That included the Malicious Software Removal Tool May version.

All 13 updates were downloaded on both the XP and Win7 Computers.

Not much else is going on.

Here is my result from today's test

You Are Wise
Introspective and reflective, you think about everything and anything. Your mind never rests.
You are a soft-hearted daydreamer. You long for your ideal life.

You take care of yourself and those around you. You don't stretch yourself too thinly.
You don't accept apologies easily. Actions mean much more to you than words do.

Good morning, Pro ((HUGS))

Yeah, it’s been nice having the mild temps. The only negative I can think of is the pool water won’t be warm enough by the end of the month.

Happy to hear that you are finally having spring-like weather.

Huh, I need more tan this year. I’m low on vitamin D.

Hope your nice days continue.

Have a wonderfully, warm, Wednesday.

Howdy! I think we ended up with 2/10ths of an inch which doesn’t sound like much but my yard looks very happy this morning!

We have had 2 1/2 inches for the year, which, oddly enough, is on target for the annual amount at this time. The deficit from last year is what is hurting...and the fact that we can no longer water but 2 hours a week with a hand-held sprayer. *sigh*

Glad you got that much! I’m sure it is helping your yard and garden not to mention the lake level there! :)

We’ve had close to 12 inches of rain this year, but no hard run off rains. The river basin had some heavy rain, so will see how much the lakes come up this week.

As of today, odd house numbers can water on Saturday from 7 - 11 AM and 7 - 10 PM with sprinklers. Even numbers have Sunday as their days. We can hand water all day on our day.

I hope the lakes do come up. Two of the lakes that we get water from are totally dry. I mean NO water in them. It’s very sad.
