A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day 08-23-02

Posted on 08/23/2002 6:44:32 AM PDT by Billie




A Few of FR's Finest.....
......Every Day

FR is a Treasure Trove of talented, compassionate, patriotic, wonderful people who gather every day to discuss the latest news and issues;  salute
and support our military and our leaders;  tell a few jokes;  learn a new
word;  write poetry;  pray for those in need;  and congratulate those who
are deserving. Thank you, Jim Robinson, for giving us the vehicle in which
we can express ourselves.

Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.  I
can remember lurking when there were only a few regulars who posted, and now there are over 60,000 who have registered for posting privileges. The forum is read daily by tens of thousands
of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.





A Few of FR's Finest November 11, 2001

So many people have written me since my original Veteran's Day Tribute, asking how they, or a loved one, could be included in that tribute. Since I can no longer add the photos to the body of the thread, I've been including them in additional posts as I received enough to make another collage.

Still that doesn't seem to be enough. I think there's never been a better nor more appropriate time to keep the faces of our own Veterans and Active Military in front of FReepers--every day! That's why I wanted to do yet another Daily Thread .....ABOUT FReepers .....and FOR FReepers. But not only about our Military FReepers; for all FReepers! Wouldn't it be nice to get to know a few of the other FReepers as well? That's why, in addition to seeing FR's Finest Military Personnel every day, I thought it might be fun to feature a different FReeper (or FReepers) each day. If you would like to be pictured, or know someone who would, please FReepmail me and we'll turn the spotlight - on YOU - for the day!

And do let me know if you'd like your picture added to the groups of Veterans/Active Military below. I will keep this page updated, and continue to add them to the comment section of the original Veteran's Day thread as well.

Want another? Who are these guys? You've seen 'em before, but can you name them?



Thanks for Playing Name That FReeper #2!
These are ALL some of FR's Finest!

No, it's about two hours south of here. Isn't it beautiful? There is an "Antelope Valley California Poppy State Reserve" near Lancaster.

"This 1,745 acre State Reserve, nestled in the Antelope Buttes 15 miles west of Lancaster, California, is located on California's most consistent poppy-bearing land. Other wildflowers: owl's clover, lupine, goldfield, cream cups, and coreopsis, to name a few, share the desert grassland to produce a mosaic of color and fragrance each spring. As unpredictable as nature - the intensity and duration of the wildflower bloom varies yearly."

I would love to see the poppy fields in bloom someday...

Did you guess anyone else yet, Pip? There are others that you talk to every single day in the calendar picture - don't think many in the White House photo have been here yet!

Isn't that Cool Guy next to Dog in the top right? I guess no one recognized him because he wasn't dancing ...... hehe!

And kachina from the ATRW thread is flexing his muscles, too.

How about the lower pic? You surely know some of those, too. At least two of them are in the vet pics - maybe not today's, but they're in one of the groups.

Sleepy, with coffee in one hand, mouse in the other, not too early in the day to be proud of and lovin' Uncle Sam and my Uncle Dubya (I've made him my honorary Uncle, Tio Jorge).

Good morning to ya, Billie, and all my neighbors at the FR Breakfast Bar.

How CUTE! Well, we know we can rule out Louie - this kid looks too 'well-behaved'. :)

However, the key word there may be 'looks' - everything is not always what it seems. Right?! :)

Thanks for asking! She's better. Had a somewhat restless night with coughing and some fever but the doctor had said to expect that. When she's up and about, you'd hardly know she's sick. Ah! the resilience of 3-year-olds!

Billie, this kid would amaze you. She only turned three in late April but she colors beautifully .... stays in the lines! .... and she draws very recognizable pictures of people, animals, etc. Maybe one day she'll be as creative as you are.
