    Thank you to all our veterans and active-duty members of the Armed Forces who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedoms.

    And may I add my thanks also, for the many sacrifices the men and ladies of the armed forces have made for this country. Freedom isn't free. Thank you!

She was in awe, too. She has exposed him to college life, and says he doesn't have any trouble with the ladies, but this is still the path he thinks he wants to follow. She says he is such a good person. This is something that you just don't hear about boys doing these days. Even having been raised Catholic, this just throws me. Maybe because all of the priests I can remember seeing, throughout my life, have been middle-aged to elderly men. I guess they came from somewhere, and were all so much younger at some point.

    I am blown away.
    I have a 2nd cousin who is a priest and he goes out and visits his mom and siblings all the time and takes vacations as well as attends family functions and weddings / dances and the like. He continued to live although he is a priest. He wasn't in prison or anything.

    I know that I didn't ask enough questions, but we were there for an appointment and the next person was waiting. I don't know what order he wants to join.

    Here's something bothersome for me. She is from the Phillipines; just visited there last summer, and still has family there. I am concerned. I'm hoping we won't lose her, but if we do, I would definitely understand.

    Veteran's Day came front and center for me when I came across a man, posted at the bottom of the expressway ramp, who was yelling for people to "give a veteran some money." No sign, no nothing. Life sure is strange.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    What do you think about having a Christmas list, on hand, to make sure you will get something that you want and NOT get stuck with what somebody THINKS you might like?

    I am over having to pretend, and getting stuck with junk that I have every intention of regifting. I am over pointless junk, unless it's from a child, doing their best. I don't even want THINGS from my son....I prefer to tell him what he can do for me, instead. One year, I had him shampooing my carpets.

    I hate to see people waste their money.

    Right there with you prhoshay. I tell my people what to get me. I also ask my bunch what they want. My daughter and sister wanted cookwear this year so that is what they are getting and the son in law wants a food processor and blender and that is what he is getting. The kids make a list and we choose from that.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I don't think that's so wrong. My mom and dad tell us what they want. They have too many "things" ie junk that the "kids" waste money on that they don't need or want. Yes, it's the thought that counts but what are they going to do with all their stuff in the end. Nothing. They'd rather have things they can USE or things people can do for them or let's face it, money to get prescriptions or groceries with.

    Some people have acted appalled when I said I make a list! (Whatever you do.....don't ask me if I care!)

    amazon.com has a wishlist function, and the beauty is that you don't have to buy the product from amazon.com! I have a little icon on my Firefox toolbar. If I see ANYTHING I want online, I just click that icon and whatever I'm looking at is saved to my wishlist. I even put a ziplining expedition on the list at one point!

    Then you just tell everyone you have the wishlist out there, and they just need to know your name or e-mail address (I forget which), and they can look at it.

    I've told my husband to be sure our kids are aware of it . . . in case they want to know what I want.

    My Amazon wishlist is so full it's regurgitating.
