Just a few rambling thoughts today

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Imperial Majesty Dixie the Radiant of Giggleswick on the Naze
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

In other news from your Imperial Majesty -

Guess who made the Cheerleading Squad yesterday!!! Yup, you guessed it... Kaitlin. I was so very proud of her. Will post pictures as soon as I get some.

Two weeks ago a contest was started over at BESTEST BLOG, allowing the fans to vote on the winners of the BESTEST BLOG OF THE DAY to select a BESTEST BLOG OF THE YEAR. Congratulations to BOND over at THE BIG LEATHER COUCH for his award of BESTEST BLOG OF THE YEAR!

Now I'm not going to brag but I did make it down there around #38 or so... ;-)

Y'all know sometimes people just don't think. A excellent comment was made yesterday on my blog by ....

Dixie, a small word of advice,posting his address although meant for friends to write him, could also endanger him later as the Marines will continue to forward his mail to wherever he ends up serving. Imagine if someone bent on harming a Marine used that information to send a biological agent in an envelope. I know it's worst case scenario but it's what the Marines taught me, prepare for the worst while praying for the best. "

I never thought about that. Thank you Simply Bananas for pointing this out. I have removed Matt's mailing address. If anyone needs it just e-mail me and I will send it to you.

I'm back and I love the new look! I agree with SB about posting the address- I actually had some a$$ say he wanted my hubs to die on my blog-

Now that's a shame that someone might use any address like that. But I guess it's better to be careful.

Congrats to Kaitlin!! Wooo-hoo!

You're welcome Dixie, glad to see you took my advice to heart. I consider every Marine my brother and want nothing bad to happen to any of them. Along the same lines, during the invasions of Panama (1989) and Desert Storm,(think I'm giving my age away there) we were ordered to burn our mail after reading it so our families addresses couldn't fall into enemy hands.

Horray for Kaitlin! :)

I read simply bananas' comment and thought to myself that she had a good point. It's sad that we live in a world that we have to worry about things like that. :(

uhhhh..Simply Bananas is not a she, at least last time I checked I wasn't
