You're so thoughtful to make a special point of addressing each of them individually, daisy! Have also added it to the original FR Finest (Veteran's Day) thread, so am up to date there, too! Yahoo! (Sometimes I've forgotten to add it to that thread right away!)

"Everyone sends it a little differently, and some give more than other, some hardly any info at all. (That, plus, I don't understand a lot of it) :)"

You know me - I always have a (not necessarily perfect) 'solution'..:)))

g'nad, perhaps, could arrange a temporary enlistment in the Marine Corps and have you go to BOOT CAMP!!
The problem would no longer be a problem.

The Corps will ENLIGHTEN you!
LOL

Greeting all from the Boyne City Public Library. I seriously think that the staff here think I'm a porn addict or something, I try to act nonchalant but catch myself smiling, chuckling etc.

Billie - How neat to arrive here and see my dad. Thanks and thanks to the many fine folks who have served our country.

Mr. D. is giving me 15 minutes today. OUCH! Except it's a beautiful day on the lake and we're going to try our hand at kayaking.

Daisyscarlett - We head back to my folks cottage tomorrow. Will be sure to share this post with them. I know dad will be touched!

Have a great day! Looking forward to spending more time here tomorrow night and Friday (when I can make as much noise as I want LOL)

Hi, dutchess! Only 15 minutes today?! YIKES! Not fair!

I'm glad we got enough photos to get this done so you can show your dad tomorrow! It's also on the FR Finest Veteran's Day thread.

Have a good day kayaking - don't turn over!

Thanks, daisyscarlett, but I can't claim to have been a Marine. I was a Navy doc who did manage, through happy circumstance, to work with the FMF during my entire enlistment. Being an avid hiker, camper and shooter, it was great to have Uncle Sam foot the bill for everything!

Being a squid and not a grunt also made it twice as satisfying when I would consistently outshoot those fine individuals with their own weaponry. Of course, all the money I made off bets made on the firing line was usually recouped by those after-hours poker games... $;-)

If you want more birds to watch, I recommend you have a frequently-replenished birdbath AND turn on a sprinkler with gentle spray near it!

They will come half a dozen at a time, co-existing while playing in it!
I also have a weighted animal feeding bowl on the ground for the neighborhood kitties and squirrels, all this under the shade of a large pecan tree.

We have a large variety of birds, but one of the robins who comes often stands out.
He is much larger than the others, and his favorite thing is to drink from and then hunker down in the LITTLE BOWL (6" square) and bathe endlessly, ignoring the others who pressure him to give them a turn!
It is so funny to watch him - named him 'The Intimidator.'

Whew ! I'm glad, then ! I already sent the link to this to Dad, Bro, et al. Thanks !
Ming loved the thread and the flowers and everything. Thanks, Mama_Bear.

The old tooth is a little sore, but not bad, considering they were using jackhammers,
files, grinders and dynomite on it less that 48 hours ago! LOL!

Sorry about the dreaded red x. I'm still a HTML & Web rookie. :^)

We'd be honored.

I wouldn't have put "US Marines" at the very beginning, but it certainly is no big deal. It can be confusing, since the USMC uses Navy corpsmen (unlike the other service branches who have their own medical corps).

FWIW, I considered myself to be more of a Marine than a Sailor, especially since I was the the USMC my whole tour. Actually, I enlisted in the Navy specifically to be a field medic, since I wanted to serve with ground forces yet did not want my primary directive to be killing people. Not that that prediliction would have proven to be any deterrent if the situation demanded it.
