Merry Christmas

This is a "Sticky Post" - meaning new posts are below; this post will stay on top for this week and through Christmas.

I want to repeat and mention some things to do for Christmas, the same things I wrote about on Veterans Day.

Make a donation to Operation Uplink, which provides pre-paid calling cards to our Troops so that they can call home.

Donate something to AnySoldier.com. Pens, writing paper, baby wipes, hand sanitizer. The link provides a list of suggested items that you can send.

If money is tight, and I can understand that it is, take a moment and at the very least send a message of Thanks and Love to our Troops.

Two of the many ways to send a message are Operation Dear Abby and Let's Say Thanks, a project sponsored by Xerox:


Send our Troops a message via Operation Dear Abby.

Send our Troops A card of thanks.

And for overall charitable donations, The Salvation Army.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you as well DD.

Ooo. I feel so politically incorrect now for dropping the 'C' word.
 
Here's a great Christmas idea, send Two Dogs the prepaid phone cards because so far, he has spend around 600 damn dollars to get bitched at for four months while Bean is deployed.

On second thought, really don't. I can just tell Bean that we can't afford to call anymore until she gets back, that's a better idea.

Happy Christmahanukwanza, you haters.
 
Molson - av ery Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year to you!
 
Oh Two Dog - I'm gonna have to be like Switzerland and remain neutral not getting in between anything between you and Bean. Sorry.

A Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year to you and yours, TD!
