SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!





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!

Home safe and sound....a goodly amount of homework, but I finished the hardest before leaving work.

Had to make a quick stop at Freddys on the way...this means going 3/4 of the way around the second circle and on to the “freeway” that ends just a bit before the turn. All went smoothly.

You Dream of a Lime Green Mansion
There's a good chance that your life has gotten a little too plain and vanilla lately.... which is why you've decided to let obnoxiously bright colors completely take over your home decor.
You're glad your days are now a little brighter and more inspired. You need more foster kittens!

Aesthetics and style are very important to you. You try not to let too many idiots into your life.
It's likely that you have your dream house (kitten-filled), dream car (a Mustang), dream view (the ocean), and dream wardrobe (not!) etched out carefully in your mind.

Thanks, the 1st part was built in 1834. It was used as a hospital twice. During the civil war & WW1. We’ve found 2 grave stones & there is a grave under my patio. It is very peaceful & no ghosts so far lol.

Good evening, Perky...cool friends you have there. Like the charcoal kitty. Can the kitties see the birdies, and make funny noises?

The kitties go nuts watching the birdies, and make great chit-chattering kitty sounds. That charcoal grey fluffball is Max ... he's been adopted and I'm delivering him to the Bay Area on Sunday (along with his brother, Chumley, also grey!) Yay for adoptions for our foster kittens!

Rainy here today and into tomorrow, and cooler-than-normal weather (yay!) My wonderful DH is here now, but leaves for a week in Texas on Sunday.

If there are ghosts they will know that a loving family has taken over the care of their farm house/hospital.

Thanks for asking.

I am constantly reminded that I have a back.

Just so you know, over the last 20+ years I’ve undergone 4 lumbar surgeries - 2 laminectomies and 2 fusions. Not fun!

WELCOME TO THE

Good morning, Everyone. Good morning

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

Where did you get the photo of my beach house?

Now for our local DC Metroland weather report

~ Today... Numerous showers in the morning...Then occasional showers and scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. Locally heavy rainfall possible in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 70s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80 percent.

~ Tonight...Mostly cloudy. Occasional showers and scattered thunderstorms in the evening...Then scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms after midnight. Patchy fog after midnight. Lows around 60. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80 percent.

You Dream of a Luxurious Life
It's likely that you need a little more pampering and indulgence in your life. You need to be taken care of.
You'd love a day of luxury - where time and price didn't matter. You'd like to soak in some comfort.

You work hard, and you want to reward yourself with some treats. Life is too short to be too stingy.
You have good taste. You can't help it if you like nice things!
The Mansion Test

You dang right I can't help liking nice things.

Time for me to make my rounds. But, you stay right where you are.

The Canteen is ALWAYS

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, 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.
