It's Friday!



from downtown Galveston, Texas... Col. Bubbies is a well-known army surplus store. I was curious as to the spelling of the word "senter".



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have 2,100 days continuous days of sobriety and I am SOOOOOOOOO glad I only had to do them one day at a time!!

that I can occasionally surrender my will to my HP and when I do, good things seem to happen

that I drove Hayden and his Mom to Galveston for a short look-see and we had a nice lunch; it's being reconstructed after last September's Hurricane Ike, but there's a whole lot to do. I don't believe that the island can ever be the same.

Thanks for the report on Galveston. I have wondered how it is recovering. My short visit there left an impression. I thought it was wonderful.

So, did you find out why center was spelled 'senter'? Just leave me hanging why don't you?

I looove Col. Bubbies! My husband was on an aircraft carrier that has been dry docked (USS Independence) and I found a hat and t-shirt from the ship there for my husband.
I plan on visiting Galveston in Sept., I hope the great old homes were not destroyed.

"Senter" is "The Army Way" to spell it. Dictionaries are incorrect, the bastards!

Galveston was really whacked hard by the storm. I hope that things can be rebuilt, but I too doubt that such damage can ever be repaired totally.

Hey Buddy... Congrats on your impressive day count and the reminder that it's a day at a time... I was in Galveston a few times when it was part of the weekly port of call for one of the ships I used to work. Glad to hear it's coming along...

I don't remember it being spelled senter...it was the 'Recruiting Scenter'.

Happy FridAAy.
