We here in the Casselman household hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and now all of a sudden its the 29th and Friday brings us to December. This year has simply passed by so fast. My children- one more year into adulthood and their kids, all my grandchildren reaching out for adulthood, raising their babies and working full-time job to survive- to eat and have a cubicle to reside in.
Hello, My Friends. Clear day and cold, but we've been given word a major storm is headed our way. But a strong wind could send it north, again.
I'm plugged into 1960's music for my headphone, so many songs I had forgotten about. I feel old. Patrick and Canaan, along with their brave helpers our busily getting their house ready so it can be inspected by the state. If they pass, then they will be allowed to foster their niece and nephew from Fairbanks. Elizabeth, our eldest , was just here for a couple days and it was nice. Me, I am either typing out my manuscripts or lying in bed reading. I prefer fiction, (war stories from WWII, spy stories, westerns, Christian stories, historical stories- fiction and non-fiction and police stories). I look forward to the day Mom and I can display our library again, nearly 1,000 books and they are all boxed up and stored in the house's coal shed.
Again, Greetings! We'll try this again- so far so good. Beautiful day outside, what snow we have so far is beginning to melt. Been doing a small bit of Christmas shopping. I'm pretty happy, I am now in contact with my old Nam buddy- Mike. I think this is pretty cool and we're now e-mailing back and forth. Woke up this morning feeling pretty good- life is good. God has blessed us in so many ways.
Okay, how many people can recall what they were doing on /11/11/11? Yes, today is Veteran's Day, and I wish to salute all those who have servede in our military and those who are still serving. Of course, everyone knows that Mona and I our veterans, that's how we met. First impressions were not all that great, but she wore on me. Not her fault, she arrived at her first base fighting a nasty toothache and trying to stifle it with alcohol. I would've too. Now I fight toothaches with Tea Tree Oil- it works, but the taste is not all that great.
I still watch the old westerns where they hold the 4th of July parades and crusty old Civil War Veterans march. Sometimes the confederates march besides the Yankees. This was before Veteran's Day was made into a holiday. Today, they'll be thousands of parades going on across the United States, but unfortunately they'll be a lot of protesters out along the parade route or maybe even allowed into the parades. Some of these people are part of the far right, made up of neo-Nazis, racists and now for some reason my computer is suddenly having a hard time printing out what I am typing on the screen. Could this be the feds, not happy with my content?
Still, I , I thank every man and woman who has worn the uniform of our military branches, and especially to those veterans who have fought in our many wars. Thank you, all of you. Listen, I'm sending this out. Constant jamming
A very nice afternoon to all family and friends out there in the wonderful land of e-mails. Weather report: snow, followed by two days of rain- no more snow and the last three days have been sprinkles, light snow and hard rain. Yesterday was quite nice after noon and the fog lifted. We get a lot of lake fog here when the temperatures stays between 30 degrees and less. This mornings fog is now gone at 3 p.m. and new snow due tomorrow. So much for our semi-official Moose Pass Community weather report- send in 10 cents.
