Random things and thoughts.

What passes for news in my town?

Oh no! The poor girl. Being roosterless is a terrible thing.

Or so I’ve heard…

A while back I made a Facebook Veterans Day post with some photos of the hubby in uniform. I found these after the fact.

In Beirut, Lebanon October 1983 with the bombed out Marine barracks in the background.

A horrible day.

This one was in Newport, Rhode Island (not sure of the year)  He was receiving a commendation for saving a man’s life.

That’s my husband. And yes, I’m proud.

Okay, maybe you didn’t used to drink in the woods…. but I was a teenager who grew up on an Island in Maine. We drank everywhere.

And finally, an update.

.

.

Yay.

I love a happy ending.

      1. I had a very good friend who came back from ‘Nam and ran into that same thing. It was sad then, and it’s not much better now. People who suspend their lives for service to their country definitely deserve better.

  1. Aww, great post!
    Your hubby was very handsome.

    We also have news like that in my small town, although it’s not as small as it used to be. But our local rag posts stuff about bikes being stolen and someone drunk being held in a jail cell until they sobered up.

  2. As with others that commented, please thank your hubs for his service to our country. I appreciate it, as I’m sure many others do. As for those darn chickens…geez, lol. And there’s use to be a small patch of woods near my small hometown, and I know what drinking in the woods is like, lol.

  3. Drinking in the woods leads to peeing in the woods —
    Or so I’ve heard
    And I’m also glad to hear they found the hen
    To give the rooster the bird.

    P.S. From a fellow veteran who was fortunate enough to serve ‘between wars,’ may I add my thanks for his service to your husband.
