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.

Awwwwww......that hot tub looks so tempting. It's so not fair. *sniff*.

Snow Bunny, my head will be ok. It's not too bad. It's just one of those nagging headaches I've had all week but won't go away. It might be the mold in the air or something. I'll be fine. :)

I need to get off and go read with little bear. We are reading the original Jungle Book. I was hoping he would forget about it tonight. LOL No such luck.

Caffeine would help. I only had one cup of coffee today. That might be half my problem. Good night sweet pea!

Good evening, everyone!

I'm just doing a "post n run" again tonight--it was a busy day, I'm tired and I'm *ahem* covering a little gray that has popped right up on the top of my head. (My mom had those bad guys pop out young too.) If I leave the stuff on too long, I'm afraid my hair will fall out. I had to stop pulling them out--I'd have a bald spot by now if I continued!!!

OK now you know all my secrets! Just couldn't pass up the chance to say hello to all my FRiends and especially "hello and thanks" to the Veterans and Troops!

Love, GG

I'm thinking Sleepless in Seattle, but not sure.

Now my shame is complete...I didn't like the movie! LOL...Useless in Seattle...But I can say without fear of being proven wrong...the New Orleans Bourbon Cake at the B&O Espresso, on Capitol Hill in Sea, is Delicious! Wish I could materialize a slice for you on top of your monitor!;-) Its the only dessert I've ever been presented with that I couldn't finish...Talk about Rich Chocolate...Holy MOLY!!
