Tuesday Take 2!

O.k., I'm back again today, feeling better I'm happy to say and I have made up my mind that I'm not going to let anything spoil my time in church, the Church needs money too....I'll just put my head down, take out my Rosary Beads (Billy gave them to me, he got them from the Parris Island Chapel the first time he went during Boot) and pray

Speaking of PI, I still keep up with the message boards, Lori in-boxed me and told me that a lot of moms got a kick out of my "MotoPosts" ~ I still can't help getting a little teary eyed every time another Platoon sets out for the Crucible....

Actually that's where I met some of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to meet, Cindy, Leah, Donna, Glenn, Lisa, Beverly, Uncle Serge....just to name a fewWe were a great big bunch of crazy moms, dads, aunts, uncles, friends... you name it. WE never missed a day... letter writing, posting up on the board, and chatting with our friends in the box!!!

Remember these little guys????
& my all time fav....

O.k. well, Nikky is waiting for a recipe so here goes! Enjoy!
