Hello dear world
Good evening how are you ?? Let me start off by saying that more of the pollen that I told you about recently has coated everything in sight. I am longing for rain and I wouldn't mind if it rained for a couple of weeks without end I wouldn't complain.
Anywho....last night my dad brought home some Crawfish. My family and I enjoy eating Crawfish they are quite tasty. He also brought home some small red potatoes which are my favorite of all. Later in the evening I watched the Lifetime series "Blood Ties" which is becoming another show I am falling in love with.
In other news today started another week of work for me and my coworkers. I do have some sad news to report.....Staff Sgt. Blake M. Harris died on Thursday March 15, outside of Baghdad. A remotely detonated bomb exploded while Harris led American soldiers on a foot patrol. He was the 3,206th U.S. soldier to die in Iraq since the war began. He will be buried in Arlington Cemetery next week. Blake Harris grew up in the Jonesboro Baptist Church. His parents, Paul and Anne, moved to Jonesboro a few months before he was born. He graduated from Lovejoy High School in 1997 and went off to boot camp a week later. He would have been 28 years old on March 30. He was on his third tour of duty in the Middle East.
My dear world it seems like everytime I turn on the television or read the newspaper I find that another soldier has been killed while fighting in the war in Iraq. Nothing seems to change there. I think that it would be nice if President Bush went ahead and pulled the troops out of Iraq. I know that I may be a zillion miles away from Iraq and I may not be experiencing war firsthand but it still affects me. I realize that I am able to be home with my family, watching television or going out shopping and that the troops don't have that ability but I am wishing they could all be out of harm's way. I can't remember where it all really began or where it will ever end.
On a different note I am so very happy to report that I got home to find that my dear friend Diane sent me a letter in the mail today and let me just say YEAH !!!!!!!!!! Its so very nice hearing from her whenever I get the chance. I will be sending her a letter in the mail tomorrow so she will be hearing from me as well. Let me also say "HI DIANE !!"
Last but not least how was your day my dear world ?? What were you up to today ?? I hope you are not suffering from an attack of "THE POLLEN" sounds like a horror movie doesn't it ??? Finally tonight I will be watching "24" with the very handsome Kiefer Sutherland which I'm sure will be another exciting program.
Do take care my dear world. I'll talk to you again soon.
