Not mentioned is Victoria Bitters or commonly known as VB. I prefer an Indian Pale Ale like Alaska Amber which we can get in Oz.

You Are a Partridge in a Pear Tree
For you, the CHRISTMAS holidays are a time of quiet reflection. You like to get some moments to yourself.
You like to think about the reason for the season. You tap into the spiritual side of things.

Your CHRISTMAS wish is peace on earth, good will toward men. You wish the world was a happier place.
You may not be able to change the world through your small actions, but you're going to try!

Howdy, Kathy! Even though we had some frozen fog that made the countryside very pretty, the roads and walkways were clear and dry. Thank goodness. We’re now in a warmup so probably no worries till the next cold front comes through.

Which means, since we’re south of you, that we’re not far behind for more cold. Thanks for the heads-up. :)

Well...it IS winter, I reckon! ;)

I don’t mind cold until it reaches negative numbers. At that point, it is as though Nature is just rubbing it in.

Good morning, Canteen. Good morning to our

AWESOME

Military, our Allies, and their families.

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

You Are Seven Swans-a-Swimming
For you, the holidays mean a lot on a religious or spiritual level. Celebrating them is important to you.
You don't really buy into a lot of the mainstream commercialism surrounding the holidays. You don't believe things bring happiness.

Your holiday wish is for each person to find fulfillment. Inner peace is the best kind of peace.
You don't tell other people how to live their lives, but you've figured out what works for you.
Which of the 12 Days of Christmas Are You?

What an interesting day we had yesterday.
Started with rain, then snow, then rain, then snow,
ending with rain I believe.

Time for me to make my rounds.
Please stay.
Chat up a military or a family member.

The FR Canteen is ALWAYS

Come 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.

Good morning to everyone at the Canteen. 32º here, so they missed the projected low by 10 degrees. It's still cold, but probably saved some plants.

I usually take her to the park around noon and let her run. I’d hate for her to run into me at her top speed.

Ever try to catch a 55 lb bowling ball? She is so fast, the sand is flying off her feet.

Some areas had trouble but at the homestead it was rain/snow/cold. Roads were good shape this morning.

You are not alone in having trouble getting into the spirit.

Gosh, sounds like my son's boxer - except she has a small yard to run in so she can't get to her top speed, I'm sure.

You Are Six Geese-a-Laying
For you, the holidays are a creative and even inspired time of year. You really get into the spirit of things.
Whether you're crafting homemade gifts or baking holiday treats, your hands like to stay busy.

Your holiday wish is for everyone to feel like a kid again. You hope each person experiences some holiday magic.
This is your favorite season for celebrating old memories and making new ones.

You Are Two Turtle Doves


For you, the holidays are a time for family, friends, and most importantly, the person you love.
You like to use this time of year to express your gratitude, admiration, and affection.

Your holiday wish is more love for everyone. You believe there's too much hate in the world.

You try to be easy on people, especially during the holidays. You try your best to keep the peace.
