If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

Know Your Medal of Honor Recipients:

Corporal Charles L. Russell (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on May 12, 1864, at Spotsylvania, Virginia. His citation reads:

Capture of flag of 42d Virginia Infantry (C.S.A.).

Landsman Henry P. Russell (US Navy) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on May 11, 1898, on board the U.S.S. Marblehead. His citation reads:

On board the U.S.S. Marblehead during the operation of cutting the cable leading from Cienfuegos, Cuba, 11 May 1898. Facing the heavy fire of the enemy, Russell displayed extraordinary bravery and coolness throughout this action.

Private James Russell (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on October 20, 1869, at Chiricahua Mountains, Arizona. His citation reads:

Before we get to everything, let me point out that the Washington Wizards will win the NBA this year.

Mary Ruth & Daniel went with me to vote. MR watched me vote & noticed that I voted for Jeremy. Our honest to goodness post-vote conversation went like this:

MR: Did you vote for Uncle Jeremy?

Me: Yep. Daddy has voted for Uncle Jeremy in every election since I've known him.

MR: Why?

Me: Because Daddy's smart.

MR: Huh?

Me: Because I think he would do a good job.

MR: Will he win?

Me: Nope.

MR: How do you know?

Me: Because not everyone is smart enough to vote for him like I did... It probably didn't help that he wasn't actually running for the position.

MR: Why didn't Uncle Jeremy run for office?

Me: He's too honest.

MR: But aren't all the people running for office honest?

Me: You're a sweet girl...

Here are a few videos from our trip to Disney World.  Sorry the quality isn't that great... but it's the best I could do.  Enjoy!

Picture Thursday

A couple of Halloween pics before we get to the Disney pics.  Here we have my dolphin trainer, Elsa, and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. 

On our way to Disney World!!!!!!!

We took a break to play checkers... I was the black, Mary Ruth was the red.

Waiting in line for a ride at Disney

They told us they didn't need a nap...

Seeing Mickey Mouse at breakfast

We are in the back two rows... The Wife and Mary Ruth are together with me, Daniel and Susie behind them.  I knew a picture was being taken, so I did my best to look like I was having fun.  Really, I hated it.  My eyes were shut as tight as possible and I would have rather been anywhere in the world other than there.  Lucky for me, Susie hated it just as much as me, so I didn't have to ride anymore rides after this one.
