SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO THE

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

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities
Another nice visit with the troops.

DC METROLAND WEATHER

~ Today...Sunny. High 63F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight...Mostly clear. Low 44F. Winds light and variable.

Making Z Zoup
A sprinkle of this...a splash of that...

A cat's jaw can't move sideways.

A type of lizard, the chuckwalla,
escapes pursuers by crawling into a crack in a rock
and inflating its body with air
so that it is wedged tightly into the crack
and can't be pulled out.

There are mice that nest in trees.
These creatures may spend their whole life
without ever touching the ground.

Writer L. Frank Baum chose "Oz"
as the name of the fantasyland in his The Wizard of Oz
stories while making up the stories
for his children and their friends.
He spotted a file cabinet marked O-Z,
and impulsively named the magical land
"Oz."

About 27 tons of dust rains down
on the earth each day from space,
making a total of almost 10,000 tons each year.

I've got to go for my morning walk.
But, I'll check pings on my return.
Please stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!
And she has enough to worry about.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

He was in bed when I got home, so I didn’t get a chance to check the wound site...maybe tonight. He seems to be doing fine...my Mom said he was pretty uncooperative yesterday, not wanting to get up. He needs to keep moving. I don’t know yet if he is using the walker all the time. I do know he’s not making sure to let one of us know when he gets off the bed. Nothing we can do but “nag”. He is responsible.

The carpet guy came yesterday and did a good job of getting most of the blood out of the carpet. Several have suggested OxiClean, so I’ll get some and see how it works.
