thank you to all the troops serving!

I am going to Mexico this weekend, will post pics and videos of some fun down there

tjchad 05-25-2007 02:26 PM

Thank you for thanking us! And let me, in turn, thank all the others.

Now, why is it that, being a veteran, I ALWAYS seem to have to work on Veterans Day and Memorial Day?;)

Dare2BSquare 05-25-2007 02:40 PM

Thanks for serving... now get back to work!!!

tiny terror 05-25-2007 03:46 PM

Come on Kat, you started the whole hug a nurse thing, I was expecting to get permission to hug a Marine (or ex-Marine as the case may be :D).

Keep in your prayers the Soldiers and Marines that are still on the ground in Iraq.

Thanks to all soldiers past and present!!

I'll be mounting up the new shoes for the wifes jeep on Sat., continuing a pool tournament on Sun (which we are in 1st place), and laying out by the pool and drinking on Monday.

Hey Tiny! I think that there are quite a few here on WF that served with the Marines, prolly some in your neighborhood!
(But you could always come to Texas, we'll take good care of ya!):D

at the risk of leaving myself wide open for comment: I'm the "touchy/feely" sort.....meaning I'm a hugger

permission given to everyone: give lots of hugs this weekend.......and every day :D


......go for it, Tiny ;)

HELL YEAH. A huge thanks to all of you who have served our country in any capacity.

If you can read thank a teacher. If you can read English thank a soldier.

Might be wheelin saturday and sunday. UFC on saturday night and then a 1st annual golf tournament that a buddy and I put together. Couple hundo to the winner.

Oh, and sorry Kat, but I'm not going to be hugging Jim or Joe this weekend. :D :D :D

tiny terror 05-26-2007 10:28 PM

Hey now! I got 6 years of service in the Air Force. I was in Desert Storm, too. I need at least a hug for that.

Buster 05-27-2007 03:25 PM

Thank you to all the Vets!!!!

I get to work all weekend :flipoff:

amy 05-27-2007 07:28 PM

I'd gladly give a big hug to our Vets, as well as a huge thank you for serving our country!

ol'bob 05-28-2007 03:37 PM

Thank you
 
Tiny, as a Marine veteran let me thank you on behalf of the Corps.

BTW - there are no "x" Marines. Some like the term "former". I like the term "veteran". Puts it in the present tense and not the past.

Yep...you can take the man/woman out of the Corps but you can't take the Corps out of them.

Also hugging nurses is a wonderful hobby.

Take care and enjoy the day. I have half an hour to go and I'm off work.

If so...thank ya, thank ya, thank ya.

Yes, you can and thank you.

It was a blessed holiday for us.....Frank's son called from Afghanistan...he is well.



Here's the pics from the parade which resulted in some minor carnage :eek: the orange CJ broke a motor mount and yoke off the rear diff trying to lift his wheels while turning (we all have to show off now and then) ;)


the old timers waited with us to line up....we were in good company!

our weekend ended with Frank running up to the new Paragon property to help cut trails....unfortunately he noticed a good sized leak from the transmission on my Jeep.......oh well, I guess I have to drive the Rubi for another week :D
