Because it is Veteran’s Day this Wednesday, November 11, 2009, I want to take time this week to honor our United States Military and all the Soldiers and Veterans who serve…
Because they deserve so much more than a day of honor once or twice a year…
I had planned this before the horrific events of last week at Ft. Hood and I hope that everyone will stop and say a prayer for every Soldier and Veteran who sacrifice so much for all of us.

Today, I thought I would share a little more about about our darling twin daughters and the process they went through in deciding to join the Army National Guard.
After a family meeting at our home with several members of the Georgia Army National Guard they learned their next step was to answer a series of questions on the National Guard website.
I feel like now that they are 18 and out of high school I can reveal more of the fun we had when they were minor children under my daily care.
Side note: This may qualify as PG-13 in case any minors are reading.
They both sat at computers and Roger Leroy began shouting questions to me while I was in another room.
This was the real conversation as the darling twins answered questions for enlistment and scholarships (you probably already know I typed it for posterity last February knowing it would some day find its way on the blog)…
RL: Do I have gonorrhea?
Me: Do you?
RL: Have I ever had a testicle removed?
Me: Just say yes, right at birth but you don’t remember.
Next I hear Wizzy whispering to Roger Leroy…
Wizzy: What are dependents? Do I have any?
RL: I need an administrator at school for a recommendation for this scholarship. Who should I ask Mom?
Me: Oh I know, why don’t you ask the assistant principal who gave you your IN SCHOOL SUSPENSION last year. Be sure to tell him you’re turning over a new leaf.
Yes, it’s true. They are both going to work in Human Intel. Everyone remain calm. I know they will keep us all safe.
I think you can now clearly see what is wrong with ME.
Hope this made you smile – we could all use a little more humor these days.
Tune in tomorrow for Roger Leroy’s experience in the Gas Chamber…
