Birthdays,2,996 Update,and Tomorrow I'll Be a Grandma!!

I'm late to the party on this one,but  Anysoldier.com  just celebrated 3 years:) Congratulations, and Happy Birthday, Marty and crew!

I have also 'met' some wonderful servicemen and women through writing letters from addresses gotten from Anysoldier  I'm thinking in particular of Melody, and also of my favorite sailor:) Bill, who is on his way home from his SECOND deployment....Yay!!

Another birthday I want to mention is Mary Ann, of Soldiers Angels Germany....it's today! and there's still time to stop by and wish her a Happy 50th! 

 
Under the heading of more "things that make you go 'Yay'"...I first learned of Kyle Anderson from Soldiers Angel Holly Aho  I remembered him partly because I have a son named Kyle, and partly because a lot of my family lives in MN....there hadn't been an update on him in a LONG time, but I happened to see today that he's bought a house!! Check it out here.
 
And it looks like  2,996  might be able to reach goal after all, of one blogger each to honor one victim. They got some major help today in that Michelle Malkin wrote about it 
 
and the 2,996  site afterwards got overloaded...which is a GOOD thing!:)
 
I agree wholeheartedly with what Katie Favazzo the blogger who alerted Michelle Malkin to the project, wrote in her blog about the project...."what will probably be the first major coalition among bloggers to date--and arguably the most important. "
 
I'd also like to thank Journals Editor Joe, for mentioning the project twice!
 
Another celebration that I'm late in mentioning is that Kat just had her one year 'Blogiversary" this past weekend.
 
And the upcoming celebration for ME and my family, is that tomorrow my first grandson is sceduled to come into this world via C-section!!  I'm SO looking forward to meeting little Aiden:)
 
Well, that's my short post for this evening...must get ready to go to work.Have a great rest of the week!
