Happy Thursday to all...

Happy Freeper Anniversary to WVNan...Alas, she won't be here to celebrate...she is enroute to Tennessee to a Class Reunion and her host does not have a computer...Have a safe trip, Nan.

Mixer, thanks again for keeping track of everyone's FReeper anniversary. Mixer, too, is outatown-on his way to the Majic Kingdom...Have a fun and safe trip, Mixer.

Hoping to hear from Beep's friend today. She had her surgery yesterday.

We did hear from ofmagog yesterday...He and the Mrs. are in Colorado now and Mrs. O. is doing better.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

I just thought I'd take a peak at the thread before I go off to work.

John, I loved the comments this morning wich IMO is worth MORE that 2 cents.

Hi ((Louie))

((COBBY))Thanks for the comments and advice on my thread last night.

Thanks, Daisy, for the coffee!

Well, better be off to work now. Everyone have a great day!

"Just one 8-ounce glass of orange juice provides more than 100 mcg of folic acid. It’s important to drink Florida orange juice every day because your body does not store folic acid. And some scientific researchers believe that it’s better to get vitamins from natural sources than from supplements. So start your day with Florida orange juice, the natural way to get folic acid."

Good morning, ladtx

Today I am struck by how young all of these fine heroes are.

May God have mercy on their souls and protect them for all of eternity.

Many of the helicopter pilots in VN were quite young. I arrived at my unit having just turned 23 and felt like one of the old men in the company. Many Warrant Officers entered flight school directly from high school, so it was not unusual to see a 19-20 year old in command of a UH-1 with a crew of 4. To see a flight of five "slicks" carrying troops with an escort of 3 gunships flying into a hot LZ knowing that the oldest man among them may be 23 years old is a testament to the training we got before we went over and what we got in the unit in-country.

Good morning Daisyscarlett, thanks for the coffee. I need an extra dose of caffeine this am, it is one of my few work days today! :-)

JH2, I really enjoyed your report from Bagdad! Kind of a different style from you! Very entertaining humorous fiction, but I suspect some of it borders near the truth! ;-)

Good morning again!

Intellectually, I know what you're saying about how young and "green" some of our biggest heroes were during the Viet Nam War. Emotionally, especially now that I'm old enough to be their mom, it's hard to accept.

I pray that you'll keep getting your important message out...We Must Never Forget!

I have a few of those glorious FL sunrises myself. I'll have to scan and post them.

4 years ago when I found out that we'd be leaving FL for GA, I bought a disposable camera and stopped every morning on my way in to work to capture the sun rising over the Indian River. I have some of them up in my office to give me hope that one day I'll return.

Good morning! Thank you, daisy, for posting this early this morning. Bad news from JohnHuang about his computer though! He wrote last night that he was having more trouble with it, and wouldn't get to spend time here as we had hoped by getting it posted early. : (

Hope you're all enjoying this tongue-in-cheek essay today! He's good; the guy is good!

Thanks so much for coming today! Enjoy!
