I have been away from my blog and crochetville for a little while now due to my son coming up from 29 Palms for a visit.  For those who have read my blog they know that my son has just gotten back from his 3rd tour over in Irag.  So he was home for a much deserved break from the Military.  It was actually a quiet time here at our house, which from what he says is what he really needed.  Brittany played her clarinet for Floyd while he worked on organizing his pictures.  Floyd has about 3 more months of the military and then will be back to civilian life so he is looking into his options for after he is out.  He is still the wonderful person he has always been and I for one cannot really say how much his service to our country means to me but he knows and appreciates it.

Mary,
Thank your son for his service to our country, and thank you.
My step-son was over there for the first part of the war. Fortunatly he was finishing up his time so he got to come home for good.
Anyway, thank your son. He is a hero in our eyes.
