A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I could no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I have been including them here as I receive enough to make another collage.
I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why we've created a place for just that. This is a friendly room in JimRob's house where FReeper FRiends can gather every day and just say hello if that's all they want to do.
We have featured different FReepers, with a little background information on who they are and what makes them who they are, along with a few photos you might not have seen on other threads; sometimes others write an essay for us to post as the feature for the day; sometimes our presentation is a human interest story found elsewhere that you might not have read; sometimes special holiday threads; but whatever the topic of the day, it is always with FR's Finest in mind and that is YOU!
Every Monday we post the photos of FR's Military Personnel that I have collected and put into groups; these will be available to view through a link the remainder of the week - every day just a click away. :)   If you would like to add a photo of yourself or a loved one in the military, past or present, please let me know; I will hold it until I have enough for a new group.
Thank you, and please have fun with us...every day!

Where are you, jwfiv? I’m in L.A. and we are finally enjoying blue skies these past 2 or 3 days. The closest fire to me was Malibu.

I’m in the hills of east SD county ... the Witchcreek fire started just a few miles away, far enough west that it sorta forgot about us as it raced downhill in that terrible wind.

Close call ... I like close calls but enough is enough ... )

Her daughter being a Christian is a comfort and a Blessing.

Although the loss is great, knowing that she is with our Lord and Savior she will find comfort. I have lost many in recent years, some I know were saved and some I’m not sure.

For those that were saved, I look forward to seeing again.

Thanks, Mr. Mayor ... it’s been a long hard year thus far and I needed to come back to the Finest for some cool, cool water to refresh my weary self.
