A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day....11-22-06....Warm Fuzzy Wednesday
11-22-06 | Billie

Posted on 11/21/2006 10:23:36 PM PST by JustAmy



A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 100,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay, or a profile of another FReeper.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY
If you have a suggestion, or an idea, or if there's a FReeper you would like to see featured, please drop one of us a note in FR mail.
We're having fun and hope you are!

~ Billie, Dutchess, DollyCali, GodBlessUSA, JustAmy ~










Welcome to Warm Fuzzy Wednesday at the Finest. For those who start counting the days on Monday until the weekend, we're halfway there! So we're here to banish those doldrums and make you smile inside! Please feel free to post sweet graphics and/or little stories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy - or just come by and give us a smile. Only two more days 'til the weekend!

Sorry, Anne. Sweet potatoes are good baked, dash of salt, butter, cinnamon, brown sugar. Yum.

Am I getting bad at math or was that 43 years ago?

Anyway, I remember clear as a bell. I was in high school and we were told there was an Assembly... unplanned ... my "play brother" John, standing at the door to the assembly hall told me as I walked in, "Kennedy got shot!"

It is my opinion that you never get over it - you just get used to it.

does anyone here remember were they were 44 years ago today? (Nov. 22)

I was in Navy Boot Camp. We had just finished eating lunch in the Mess Hall, gathered outside in formation to march to our next class.

Our Company Commander walked up to our Company and announced that the President had been shot in Dallas. Never forget his words... "I think the man is dead."

All remaining classes that day were cancelled. Keep in mind, in boot camp we had no television, no radio, newspapers only available on Sundays. Our CC brought in a radio and we were able to get information from radio news. On Sunday, every newspaper available was purchased and passed around to anyone who was interested in reading the info.

Off to cross the desert and be with family in AZ for the long weekend, I want to wish all the Finest a most wonderful Thanksgiving.

May the Good Lord bless us all, and may He always bless and favor our beloved USA.

Boy .... do I feel stupid this morning!

I've been having computer problems all morning.
I assumed it was trouble with my satellite.
Guess what .... My trouble's name is Sassy!
Marissa's new kitten was playing on my desk and behind the computer tower.
Yes! .... She pulled a couple of cables.

Hope everyone is having a Warm Fuzzy Wednesday.
I will try to catch up with y'all sometime today or tonight. :)
