Headin' Out

I didn't trip. I didn't fall.

Everything went fine yesterday. Well, the Lunch Show anyway.

The rest of the day? Yeah, let's just say there wasn't a lot of laughing comin' from my office.

The streak continues.

BUT...today. Ahhh today. Lots of impossible deadlines that I will just miss and then at 4:00 head to the airport.

Tomorrow is the DC celebration for the Month of the Military Child. At the Pentagon.


The camera is packed and we've been told we can take pictures. Now, I had to laugh when folks were complaining that we can only take pictures of the event itself. WTF are they thinkin' if they assumed we'd be going to THE PENTAGON while we are AT WAR and they could walk around takin' pictures of the place?!?!? For cryin' out loud.......

They are expecting a lot of media and it's going to be filmed to send over to the troops. We're expecting a huge turnout.

I wasn't going to take my laptop, but I think I might after all. I'll post a recap with photo's when I get home tomorrow night, but just in case there are delayed flights and such I don't want to be without the 'puter. That would constitute a disaster in my book.

My plan is to stay in the background as much as possible. Let's face it folks, most of those kids can craft better than I can - they don't need my help. No, I'm planning on just making sure they have what they need, that they are enjoying themselves and take the time to thank their parents. To let them know we honor the sacrifices their families make for our freedom.

Now, if I just don't come across as some mushy sappy patriot. Oh wait. I am. Oh well.

Tomorrow morning at this time I'll be having breakfast in DC. Lunch at the Pentagon.

Never in my wildest dreams.........

I'll never forget my first time in the pentagon. It's a movie I still play in my head.

First thing that struck me, the neatness and order of the place (it was so clean you could eat off the floor!) The next thing ALL THOSE GUYS IN UNIFORM!!!! I had a permanent grin the entire time I was there. There's just something about a guy in a military uniform.

Next was everyone's precision, from their talk to their walk! I loved it, there was nothing extrenous about anything.

You're going to love it and I know it will be as memorable for you as it was for me. Have a GREAT time!
