Spirit of America Challenge is Back!

Once again I am joining forces with Castle Argghhh!!! and the Fighting Fusileers. We're a bit late getting started and the other groups have a big head start on us.

I will be plastering up the posters later today - but until I have time to load up the pictures... go here to donate with the Fighting Fusileers!

Thanks for supporting this outstanding cause.

Blog Dinner, Driving, and other Post Thanksgiving Fun

So, tonight I had dinner with Tammi and _Jon in South Bend, Indiana. Sounds simple enough doesn't it... it certainly is for most people, but just put me behind the wheel and it turns into the all day adventure!

First of all, I must say that whenever I have to drive to Indiana, everyone and their brother comes out to play on the highway with me. I guess they don't want me to be lonely... but where most people manage to make this little trip in about 2 - 2.5 hours, that's how long it took me to make it to the Illinois-Indiana border (about half way there).

Next you have to realize that there are 2 different highways with nearly the same number - there is 80/94 and 80/90 (when 80 splits off of 94). So, I talk to _Jon who tells me I need to go on 80/90, whereupon I say okay no problem... Except I was talking to my daughter as I passed the exit and when I said something to the effect of "drat I wanted to go on 80/90" - she said "no you don't you want to go on 94". Then I talked to Tammi, who also said "yeah, stay on 94" ... so I'm tooling along and looking for the number of the road _Jon was telling me about - only to realize - he WAS talking about 80/90 and I had passed the only exit to South Bend and had to turn around and go back!!! The road exit he was talking about doesn't exist on 94... *sigh*

So, once I get off the highway and I'm heading in whatever direction it might be toward South Bend... I get on the phone with Tammi and _Jon - where they lead me through various devious ways about the city of South Bend and we FINALLY end up in the same place!!! Happy, Happy Joy, Joy!!! (how it is that _Jon didn't go completely mad trying to talk me through South Bend... is a miracle in itself).

Thus we did finally end up having dinner and talking about 1001 different subjects and having a great time. Well, worth all the effort of getting there. *grin*

I will let Tammi tell you about how she had half the blog family trying to figure out where she disappeared to until mid-Sunday afternoon - as that is a saga in itself. Now all we have to do is figure out how to have a Blog-Family reunion (or whatever you might call it).

Happy Anniversary!

To my wonderful blog sis Bou! She has a lovely post about meeting her husband - reminds me of when I met my husband, he walked into the room, I looked at him and thought "that's the one!" Must run in the family. *grin*

May you and your husband have many more wonderful years together!

This is Why...

I try to read Lileks first thing every morning!

Yay Condi Rice. I want her to go to Saudi Arabia, and I want her first words upon getting off the plane to be “I’ll drive.”

His thoughts on the Secretary of Education are divine... Yes, he is a first "must read" of the day. Because I love starting my day laughing.

A Few Thanks Are In Order

First to the Venomous One who not only gave me a lovely link, but also put me on her new blogroll! To top it off she has been on a real roll lately, blogging up a storm. Making up for all the time she's been missing I think. So, go read, there is much excellent writing!

Next I would like to thank Harvey for honoring me with a Little Right Wing Circle Jerk award! Now all I have to do is find some time to get the logo on my sidebar. Considering how hard it's been for me to get anything done lately - this may take a few days. But really I may scrape out time to do it tonight. It should be up there for the election.
