Had a great 4 day weekend!
To be honest, I am not sure why we have this one (not that I am complaining!), but I did watch a fair bit of stuff on FoxNews and found out why it is special in the USA. There was one interview which really struck home - a guy who had lost a leg to a bomb and was now dedicating his life to looking after those who are left behind. This guy spoke with such passion, straight from the heart - you couldn't not be moved. What he said meant far more to me than any amount of speeches by officers, generals, etc. When a guy goes out and puts his life on the line for his country it is the country's duty to see that those he leaves behind are cared for. Hope people were listening to him. Hah, I can't really say much more here - read some of Karie's posts if you want more on what it is like for those who are left to pick up the pieces.
OK, back to normal programming!
The weekend was long and lazy. Number One Son had a great time in London, getting there and back without incident.
It was far too windy for a barbeque - going to have to really go for it when the wind does drop, I am getting withdrawl symptoms!
Most of my time was spent watching TV and painting toy soldiers - I have nearly finished a set of armies for the eastern mediterranean at around 60BC. Obscure but very interesting - plus you get to call the Judeans "splitters"! You will get this if you have seen Life of Brian...
So back to it again now! Trying to catch up on your blogs - if I haven't visited yet I will do soon!
