Halloween on Sunday.....What????

I just read the most unbelievable story on Reading this, I now know that those people on Jerry Springer are NOT acting. Check out these quotes from an article titled "Halloween on Sunday Troubles Some Southerners".

"It's a day for the good Lord, not for the devil," said Barbara Braswell, who plans to send her 4-year-old granddaughter Maliyah out trick-or-treating in a princess costume on Saturday instead.

"Moving it, that's like celebrating Christmas a week early," said Veronica Wright, who bought a Power Rangers costume for her son in Newnan. "It's just a kid thing. It's not for real."

And the best of all...

"You just don't do it on Sunday," said Sandra Hulsey of Greenville, Georgia. "That's Christ's day. You go to church on Sunday, you don't go out and celebrate the devil. That'll confuse a child."

People just don't get it. Maybe I don't get it.

Rain and more

Just a few random thoughts....

It rained tonight, but only in our front yard. I know that it has to end somewhere, but that was just totally weird. The sad thing is our back yard needs it more than the front.

We went to an awesome poker/Birthday party Friday night! Thanks to all who were there, you know who you are.

Life is going pretty good here. We have about 3 months left in this terrific weather before we move across the world to freeze our booties off. Why doesn't the Air Force have a base in the Bahamas?

My brother and his family are well settled in. John is still looking for permanent employment but I’m sure something will happen soon. I am enjoying living with them. My nephew is so pickin’ cute! Living with them has been so easy. John and I have yet to fight—that’s amazing!

Well, now you’re caught up. If there is anyone out there (who actually reads this) who could tell me how to add my friends’ blogs to my page, I would appreciate it.
