One more day ...

I am so thankful that it's Thursday. One more day and it's the weekend!!!!!

I don't have much time for posting this morning... just wanted to let y'all know that I'm alive and fairly well. I've got some physical things going on with me that I am going to have to find out about. I so physically tired... I'm tired to the bone ... so I'm going to make a doctor's appointment today and try to get in soon.

It's been two weeks since I have received any letters from Matt. I know he's busy. They went on a small 6 mile march Saturday and are stationed in another squadbay for this week and next. He is learning the correct firing positions this week and will go to the firing range next week. Yes, we are at the half way point... only 6 more Thursday's till Family Day and 6 more Friday's until he becomes a United States Marine...

Received this in an e-mail yesterday... here I am leaving you with a little funny today.

An airplane was about to crash. There were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes.
The 1st passenger said,

"I am Kobe Bryant, the best NBA basketball player. The Lakers need me, and I can't afford to die." So he took the 1st pack and left the plane.

The 2nd passenger, Hillary Clinton said,

"I am the wife of a former U.S. President, a NY State Senator and a potential future president. And, I am the smartest woman in American history, so America's people don't want me to die." She took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane.

The 3rd passenger, Ted Kennedy, said

"I am a U.S. Senator, the Democratic Party needs me and my liver still has some good years left. So he grabbed the pack next to him and jumped.

The 4th passenger, Billy Graham, said to the 5th passenger, a 10 year old schoolgirl,

"I am old and frail and don't have many years left, and as a Christian I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute."

The girl said, "That's okay. There's a parachute left for you. America's smartest woman took my school bag."

and one for the road...

Just bought a new Lexus, you know the one that parks itself, but I had to go back to the dealer the next day because I couldn't get the radio to work. The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated.

"Nelson," the salesman said to the radio.

The Radio replied, "Ricky or Willie?"

"Willie!" he continued and "On the Road Again" came from the speakers.

Then he said, "Ray Charles," and in an instant "Georgia on My Mind" replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, "Soggy Bottom Boys," I'd get beautiful bluegrass music. If I said "Beatles," I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Yesterday, a couple ran a red light and nearly creamed my new car, but I swerved in time to avoid them as I shouted "Ass Holes!"

Immediately the French National Anthem began to play, sung by Jane Fonda and Barbara Streisand, backed up by Michael Moore and The Dixie Chicks, with John Kerry on guitar, Al Gore on drums, Dan Rather on harmonica, Nancy Pelosi on tambourine, Harry Reid on spoons, Bill Clinton on sax and Ted Kennedy on Scotch.

Golly, I LOVE this car.

Yes, feel better Dixie. You need to take care of yourself. Hopefully all you need is a long vacation.

Loved both jokes. The first one really sounded good and sadly the second one is pretty close to reality. Have a great day. :)

Since when did 6 miles become a "small march"??? Not in my book!

Thinking of you and sending LOVE.

The "smartest woman in America grabbed my school bag" made me snort!
Thanks for the laugh.
