25 January 2007, I'm a Winner!
Queen Mimi declared that I had the best score in the Comeback Challenge this week. I must say, I was stunned. There is a great deal of comic talent assembled for this contest. Click here if you haven't read the responses by everyone yet. As the winner this week, I get this really cool button over your right, no the other right, yeah, there. Thank you to everyone who came over to say congrats.
I've been checking out more Milblogs (military blogs) lately. There are quite a few that range from personal stuff, like mine, to news coverage by current and former military personnel. I've noticed for the still active guys and gals out there, they are putting up a disclaimer on their sidebar, to avoid any problems. I didn't have one as you know by now, I keep my site fairly clean of any problems. There are times when I start typing several lines in a post and then quickly backspace it into oblivion as I thought better of revealing such information. As you can see, today's word is 'oblivion'. Looking at Merriam-Webster (which I keep next to the computer) it says "1. the condition of being oblivious". Now I had to look up oblivious. "1. lacking memory or mindful attention 2. see Sgt Dub"
Anyway, I am a rebel most of the time, but I know the do's and don'ts and merely push the line instead of stepping over it.
Mrs. Dub got tagged by the meme going around right now, and felt if she had to do, so did I. Shall we dance?

Sorry, I feel responsible for getting the "tag" thing started... but it is fun, isn't it.

Stay safe!

Love your button! Congrat's!

MrsDub said...

Is there a mountain on your property? If so, then I will join you! P.S. when juggling, keep your mouth closed - we all remember how funny you looked that time your brother tossed the piece of hard candy across the room and you tried to catch it in your mouth. Talk about "Bubba". And yes, you better NOT come home with any tattoos!

Kat said...
