Tennessee #1

Well, I am behind on a few posts. Sems like the hurrier I go the behinder I get. The last time I left you, I believe it was Jason's Birthday. He reported he had a wonderful birthday. I was so glad to see him !!

I believe I was also getting ready to leave to come to Tennessee----well I am here but my luggage is still not here. Boy do I have a beef with United Airlines. When you pay good money for a ticket and then they insist on checking your bag - AND it costs $20 right from the gitgo. They ought to be able to keep up with your baggage. What A rant I have!! and customer service is based out of "who knows where". In two days I have yet to find anyone who speaks english you can understand!! and they have NO CLUE where Mountain City Tennessee is. Of course they would probably tell me you can't get here from there!! and they have proved that by holding my bag hostage. At least I do have clean undies now but still no suitcase!!!
On another note, Coleman had a wonderful birthday last night and I have photos to post. We had birthday cake at Hardee's. About 20 people showed up for the festivities.

We also went uptown to welcome home the troops of the 776th Maintenance Company after they spent a year in Iraq. There was a real homecoming at the National Guard Armory. Flags and yellow ribbons lined Main Street in Mountain City as well as many people who all showed up for their support. Along Highway 67 as they passed through people were waving from their porches to show their support. It was a wonderful "Welcome Home" celebration. We owe these fine men and women a big Thank You for their dedication and service to our country.

I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

That's it for today.
