Thank You

I’m not really getting into all the celebrating today, I guess because I’ve been out of sorts for the last few days.  (Don’t ask; I’m not sure I completely understand why myself.)  One of those times when I just want to be left alone and have little to nothing to do with people.  I do want to take a minute, though, to say Thank You to everyone who follows, looks in occasionally, or stumbles across either this blog or the other one who has served in the military.  That extends to anyone who has lost a spouse, parent, sibling, child, or other loved one. 

As I’ve grown older, I’ve noticed that my collection of regrets tends to increase.  One of the main ones is that I never served in the military.  Part of it was my aversion to authority, but part of it was that I never felt the need to do so.  I doubt I would have that attitude today.  Of course I’m past the age they’ll take me.

But I digress.  I want to thank everyone who has served and sacrificed for our freedoms.  Without you and those who came before you, I wouldn’t be able to do so many of the things I enjoy.

So Thank You.  Very Much.

Independence Day Greetings

I’m traveling this weekend and will have limited computer access, so most of the work I’m doing on the blog will be to get caught up on some reading.  I’ll be posting a couple of reviews this next week, one an anthology and the other a novel.  Since I had a few minutes where I could log on, I wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day.  And if you are a citizen of a country that doesn’t celebrate American independence, please accept my wishes for a good weekend.
