"...you must really be attentive!"

Well... I've got to tell the truth. We have an extensive alarm system that picks up the least little problem - and then sends me a message. So, truth be told, I am a slave to the alarm system. LOL

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.

Our local DC Metroland weather report

~ Today...Mostly cloudy with intermittent drizzle this morning.
Warm. High 86F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight... Cloudy skies this evening.
A few showers developing late. Areas of dense fog.
Low 68F. Winds light and variable.
Chance of rain 30%.

Your Mind is Sharp
You are rational enough to see things clearly. You don't allow your mind to play tricks on you.
You have a crazy good head for facts. Once you commit something to memory, you remember it forever.

You have a reputation for being a perfectionist. You are a stickler for having things a certain way.
Even when a problem is difficult, your mind is up to the task. You can make sense of complexity.
What Is Your Brain Good At?

It's weird but I seem to be a smorgasbord.
I read through the pings this morning and
see a pieces of me in most of them.
Maybe that happens as you age?

Anyways, you know the drill...gotta post and run.

Fingers crossed next week will be better.

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

The Canteen is ALWAYS

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.

((HUGS)) to everybody and Wednesday Morning Coffee Bump.

Well, Bo and I had to make an unscheduled trip to the vet yesterday. I noticed something didn't seem right with Bo and I took him to the vet.

He had some exposed flesh on the bottom right portion of him right around the bottom by his leg. It turns out it was a hot spot.

I did some Google research on Hot Spots in dogs and found out what it was. This the very first time I've ever heard of this.

The vet gave me some treatments for this problem It's a spray that you use to help alleviated it.

Also the vet recommending Bo do some water stuff to help heal the problem.

BTW I also got me a haircut yesterday. Haven't had one in awhile.

They're saying we may be into the 50's for highs this weekend with some rain. Cabin Fever weather.

That's all from here. How's it going for you this morning?

*Good Morning Everyone*
Have a great day.

Your Mind is Attentive
You are always paying close attention to what's going on around you. You are focused but also a multitasker.
You are a doer, not a dreamer. You like to put all your ideas into action.

You are very productive. You are good at knowing what needs to get done first and then doing it.
You are proactive, and you try not to let anything slide. You avoid lazy thinking habits.

Hiya Ma!!

Your Mind is Focused
You have your eye on the prize, and your mind is like a trap. You love having a single focus.
You are highly determined and motivated. You know what you want, why you want it, and how you're going to get it.

Distractions are invisible to you. You never let yourself get off course.
Once you've made up your mind, you won't change it. Period. You are well known for your stubbornness.

I got a call from my daughter, this morning, telling me that her father-in-law (who is a lot older than my husband and I) was taken to the hospital, following a fall down the steps, with a broken back. He had to be air-lifted to a hospital in Reno. (They were in Tahoe, when it happened.)

Anyway, I’m posting this here because he is a WWII vet, who was wounded at Normandy. He had lied about his age to enlist and was sent immediately to Normandy, where he was shot in the legs. He laid in a ditch throughout the whole battle and was given up for dead. He was rescued the next morning by a French woman, who took him home and nursed him until he could be picked up by the red cross. He had no memory of the battle or being rescued until he was in his late seventies and the old war wounds started acting up, and it all came flooding back. He has been suffering from PTSD ever since. It’s been very rough going for him and now things don’t look good at all.

Anyway some prayers might be in order for this brave old soldier, Robert Collins.

Thank you. I think Bob Collins is going to need all the prayers that he can get. The doctors have decided not to operate on his back, which is broken in four places because he has a blood clot that is causing a heart problem and they haven’t decided what to do about that, so they are doing nothing, but putting him in a brace and letting him lay in the hospital room by himself. It’s a very sad situation.
