I guess the standard thing to do is to write some post about sacrifice and duty and all of that stuff. I don't have any desire to do that. My life has enough of that stuff that on the other 360 some odd days of the year. Quite frankly I find the whole thing depressing. I have lost people and don't feel like dwelling on it over a nice sunny long weekend.
I don't have the same degree of direct combat experience that I think Ryan does but, yeah.
It was a beautiful weekend here in Our Town. We made the 8 hour round trip drive up to pick up this fearsome beast who has now invaded Our House and is starting to terrorize the cat (only because we're not letting her get swat back by the cat... yet... she's too little and might get hurt).
Yes, she's that cute. Our weekend has been busy getting her all settled in.
