Sorry I have been so quiet lately. I can’t get myself to stamp when the kids are home. I am having a great time with them. We watched Twilight on Tuesday (AWESOME!!!) and yesterday we baked Christmas cookies and played Uno Attack. Good times, good times!
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
Rick asked me to post this on my blog for you to read:
Dear Card Ladies,
Over the last year I have received thousands of beautiful cards for the Airman/Sailors/Soldiers/Marines out here in the Middle East–THANK YOU! The cards you made and mailed, at great expense, were much appreciated and brought joy to family and friends back home. I can’t tell you how many people asked me to thank you for the cards. The men were especially thankful as we have an aversion to writing letters. The cards enabled us to put a few words down to our loved ones instead of an impersonal email. I would also like to thank you for helping keep my wife Beate’s spirits high while I was deployed…it was like having an extended family all over the world.
As I get ready to redeploy I have asked one of my Airman to take the reigns as “Cardman”. MSgt Dimitrios Xadzipulos a.k.a “X”, is ready and willing to assume the awesome responsibilities that come with the title “Cardman”. You can start sending all cards to him effective immediately at the following address:
APO, AE 09309
Thanks again and may God Bless America.
