Have discovered that one of our stations is running 3 Christmas movies back to back this afternoon so have to get my ironing assembled to take advantage of that (hey, multi-tasking; I've never tried it before but there's a first time for everything, eh?!!!)

Hey Mo! So good to hear from you! Hope you enjoy your Saturday!

His military records were destroyed in a huge fire back in the 1970's at a military records warehouse. Upon moving him out of his house and into a assisted living facility, we came across several military documents. I researched them, and contacted the US Army, military records and with the help from them, we were able to re-establish his military record. We found out that that he earned a Bronze star and a Plillipine Liberation medal with 4 bronze stars and a purple heart and 4 other medals and ribbons. He never knew that he was awarded them because he was wounded in action from a japanese motar round and sent back to the states. I purchased a shadow box and place them in there and gave it to him for Christmas, he cried, which brought tears to my eyes as well.

Here is a picture of it:



Very awesome. Thank you both for your service.

Well besides the terribly sad news about Louanne, things are going good for me at the moment.

I'm back doing my first love, acting. I took a break after having my Daughter, but now she's 3 and a half I thought it was time I got back into it. I'm currently in a production about Nazi Germany and how it affected all classes during the Third Reich, it's really interesting and hopefully it'll lead to bigger things.

This happens to me every May without fail, I start thinking of Christmas on a daily basis. Not too long now, guys!

i had an email off tanja (trackrebel) before, informing me that caninemom3 is no longer with us, i feel so heartbroken, she was such a lovely lady and such an important part of the forum. i feel numb, how and why did this happen?

i am in shock.
