I'm thankful for the three years I was able to spend in the US Air Force, proudly serving our country. I'm thankful for my husband who just retired after 21 years in the USAF. I'm thankful that he came home after serving in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Iraq, just the way he left, well maybe a little thinner. I'm thankful to those who serve, and for those who have died for us to be able to cherish the freedom we so do.

Yes, this was a campaign ad. My point in posting it now is I hope that when President Elect Obama speaks of change, he means for the better, and that he'll make the right decisions regarding Iraq, and our military.

I have, guess you might say, ecclectic tastes in music. Prepare for mindless, insomnia-induced blather...

My cat, DC, who is 15 years old, loves it when I'm awake like this. He has someone to talk to, but doesn't understand humans aren't very conversational when their sleep has been interrupted.

Poor thing is having trouble jumping up onto the washing machine these days. It even came to the point where we have a small cooler sitting in front of it as a booster.

He's having trouble jumping from it now, and I just heard him trying to jump up, miss, and try again. Then he just started meowing I helped him up there. We have to leave the food on the washer, otherwise the girls will eat it.

It's great having a mini-zoo!

Yes, I'm on the verge of delirium. Not getting enough sleep will do that!
