Fruit flies like a banana.

With four glorious days in a row here, I've had the windows open and the a/c off in great comfort. I'm loving it! I was ready for the season to change this year, instead of dreading the end of warm days and sunshine. Maybe this fall (I know, it doesn't really start until tomorrow) is easier because it has shifted in gradually, instead of staying in the 80s until one fateful October night when a hard freeze kills all the kids in the swimming pool.

Response to Stine

My patriotism, sir, is not confined to a single date. I will admit, though, that my heart swells with love for the Federal Government on Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (observed), President's Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July. I've got to get on here and post, though, about my last couple days. A fun debate, a beautiful funeral, an 83mph trip out I-66...oh yeah.

Desist radio silence.

Yeah, yeah. I've been bragging to everyone about how I was going to keep up with blogging this year, and I haven't done it. Well, it isn't my fault this time. Everything was going great and I was all geared up to finish the yearbook--more of a priority than blogging right now--and I was within sight of the end, when Joe got a garrison billet that took the computer away from me for nearly three weeks!!! My own poor lappie is dying the slow, agonized death that Dells die, so I was bereft of life, liberty, and internet access for that whole time. This prevented my doing anything of particular use, except for cleaning the house some more, making Christmas presents, and writing many letters to friends and family at OCS, at BASIC, in jail, on Cowboy Ranches, or wherever else my friends and family happen to be.

Now, I've got the computer back, I've got my groove on, and it's time to work on the yearbook. I'll be back when it's done, I promise! I hope to have a solid readership again before I start going really interesting places...
