We Now Return You to the Regularly Boring Blogging :)

Operating under the assumption that all 5 or 6 of my readers have been in withdrawal,lol, I figured it was time for a blog post. (or maybe it's just me that's in withdrawal :)

The above pics were taken by Emma's stepbrother while they were visiting for Aiden's baptism, he took them on Skyline Drive. Great pictures,I think, and don't we live in a beautiful place?

It seems that my talking about  Soldiers Angels  ad infinitum is taking fruit :)  First Emma decided to join and we co-adopted a Marine...who she recently heard back from,YAY!! And then my second son, who is currently attending school at the  Central Shenandoah Criminal Justice Academy , told me the other night that he is attending school with a veteran who served in Iraq....and Kyle said one of the first things he asked him was "Have you ever heard of Soldiers Angels ? " (Way to go,son!! Although I'm sure the next sentence was "my Mom won't shut up about it",LOL. And, yes, the veteran HAD heard from some Soldiers Angels while deployed :)

Last night, I surfed around the 'net after work just to check up on websites and folks after my hiatus from the online world. There's no particular order to the websites I'm 'pimpin' today :) but I would first of all like to remind everyone that mail for Christmas to deployed troops needs to get sent BEFORE Christmas
