USO Canteen FReeper Style ....Themeless Thursday .... August 22,2002
FRiends of the USO Canteen FReeper Style SAMWolf and Snow Bunny

Posted on 08/22/2002 12:00:55 AM PDT by Snow Bunny

.

.

If you know a Veteran, someone in your family,
friend of the family, neighbor, who served their
country, take a brief moment of your day to thank them.
Thank them for the sacrifice they made
for the better good of their country.

We at Free Republic, and the USO Canteen FReeper Style,
are thankful for every service member
in our military, who has served our great nation.

So, to the men and women who answered the call,
in both times of war and peace, thank you.

.

Message from Snow Bunny to all those who visit the Canteen.

This is how I think of the USO Canteen Freeper Style.
It is like a cottage down a road,
a place where a weary veteran can spend the night.

Since it opened, it is magical how so many
Freepers who post here, feel it too.
It has been so dear how the Freepers
kept making it a cottage - a home-type of place
that had a huge living room
for them to visit in and a dance floor, a library, etc.

Many Veterans have written to me,
saying that the Canteen is like home
to them for the first time since they served.

This is your Canteen -
a respite from our busy
and sometimes troubling world.
Make yourself at home.

"Conducted over 2,000 boardings of high interest vessels "

There was 1 such boarding today while I was on watch.
I can't really post just what happened
but can tell you that this particular boat had called
in on the radio for information about coming into Coos Bay.
The OOD Gave me some specific questions to ask the boat
and based upon the answers a boarding team met the boat at the dock.
The OOD's "6th sense" was right.

Hiya Snow Bunny! Sure you will see me. She's a good mother-in-law and doesn't need constant supervision and babysitting. She takes care of herself. LOL We usually play a lot of games when we are together as a family, but I passed on the games tonight and came in here. I feel like I haven't seen you guys in ages.

I tore a couple scraps of paper off my ticket jacket and scribbled out the web address for FR and wrote USO Canteen and my screenname and invited them to come visit. I hope they do!

Who could resist that warm invite. (^:

Welcome 82nd Airborne and friend!

To all the Canteen Ladies that MIGHT be on a diet:

A Dieter's Psalm

Strict is my diet. I must not want.
It maketh me to lie down at night hungry.
It leadeth me past the confectioners.
It trieth my willpower.
It leadeth me in the paths of alteration for my figure's sake. Yea, though I walk through the aisles of the pastry department,
I will buy no sweet rolls for they are fattening.
The cakes and the pies, they tempt me.
Before me is a table set with green beans and lettuce.
I filleth my stomach with liquids,
My day's quota runneth over.
Surely calorie and weight charts will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the fear of scales forever.

Chill out? No way! Wonder why they call them Cornish Rex? More like T-Rex, little monster. We just love her! Winifred isn't lonesome anymore. She hasn't even caught her breath since Cassie came to stay. HeeeHeee!

"Better living, thru chemistry".

Oh, did you learn that yesterday from RA and Sabertooth?

**********
From RA's science post: Radio astronomers use CO emissions at 1.3 and 2.6 mm to identify molecular hydrogen (H2) in these cold molecular clouds. H I regions consist primarily of neutral atomic hydrogen (H) gas with densities of up to 107 atoms per cubic meter at temperatures around 100 K, and are detected from 21-cm emissions generated by the quantum spin flip of individual hydrogen electrons.

Sabertooth to RA: True enough, but things really get interesting as the radio astronomers delve into the mass adenoidal transfusions of C17H21NO4.

Hi honey bunny! You'll never guess what I did at the grocery store today. I shopped for wine bottles. ROFLMBO!!!!! "Hmmmmmm...this bottle is the prettiest...I'll take this one". I thought of you! I love my plants. They are doing great. Sorry I haven't been around much this week. I've been praying God would help me with my priorities and it seems he has been doing a good job without me realizing it.

I've got a bad headache and I just took a Soma so I have no idea what I'm typing. Please ask the moderator to delete this if I said something bad. LOL Lordy how I miss you........and your hot tub. *snort* But I swear I miss you the mostest. I'm ready to jump in. Wanna go?

I thought your Peaches and Cream cake sounded just lovely, SpookBrat, so I looked up the recipe!

Well, I'm not into C17H21NO4 transfusion, either... but I needed something scientifical with to reply to RA's post, and I recalled a bio-chem friend at Berkeley who used to leave that molecular graffitti around the dorms, because no on knew what it was.

You bet I'm ready to hop in the hot tub! I'll mix up a batch of Margaritas first!

So funny about the wine bottles. I bought a pretty bottle this week too - to use for rooting more plants for you! (Note to everybody lurking: We just drink the wine so we can have the bottles for our plants! hehehehe)

Aaaaahhhhh!
