    Good morning all! Working an extra night to cover my night that I missed last week when my sister was here.

    My grandfather enlisted within 5 days of Pearl Harbor and served as a morse code operator on the USS Whittier. I still remember, even though he died 16 years ago....

    Visiting the Memorial in Hawaii is heart-wrenching and still feels "recent."

    Took care of a 90 yo vet recently; he was in WWII.
    When we commented that he'd been thru/seen a lot in that war, he shrugged and said his memory is slowly erasing a lot of that time.
    He did say he remembers sitting on his dad's shoulders, during a ticker-tape parade in NYC for "Lindbergh."
    Nice, nice man.

    Remembering our vets.

    We've just arrived home from our "final," a live jazz performance.
    It went well, and I'm tired now.

    Goodnight, see you all in the morning!

    My father-in-law served in the Pacific on a Destroyer Escort. All the grandkids have learned about the war and THE NAVY at his knee or on his lap. My youngest and grandpa made a submarine two days ago.

    Well, the darn storm is leaving little wisps of snow and the weather report says more to come . .

    My oldest son called - he and his girlfriend broke up . . .

    Just a blue night . . . .

    See you all in the morning.

    Good morning, afternoon, night...whatever the hour in your neck of the woods!

    I'm on my way to bed. I'm off work tomorrow, but just wasn't tired enough to go to bed before now. Just renewed my allnurses membership! It is sooooooo good to be back here! I am so very blessed to have an income to renew my membership! Thank You, Lord!

    (((((((Steph and son))))))) so sorry about your son and his girlfriend breaking up. Encourage him to take some healing time before jumping into another relationship. There are very good reasons why those seasons of change come into our well you and I know. :flowersfo

    Nighty night all!

    Zoe, Thanks for starting the thread.

    Yes, Today is Pearl Harbor Day. My Dad went out & joined the Air Force. He didn't get out until I was about 2 yrs old. I remember the stories my Mom & Dad told.

    I'm at work again. Well, believe it or not, two nites in a row with the correct amount of staff!! That is truly amazing in this place.
    I won't say much more about this nite--don't want to jinx it since it's still early.
    After work, DH & I will grocery shop. After that, we might go Xmas shopping. If we don't Xmas shop this AM, we'll go Sat. AM.

    Well, got to get back to work here!! Duty Calls!!!!!!!!!!

    See you all later

    I'm feeling like a bit of a dill about now! lol Provided of course, that it IS my fault! lol

    Visiting the memorial in Hawaii last year was a deeply moving experience.
    Remembering all those who served and continue to serve.

    Sorry about your son and his GF, steph. Never easy or nice having your heart broken.

    Great to *see* you posting again, cheer! Wonderful that things have taken a turn for the better. I wish you all the very best now and into the future.

    G'day Di, listened to some lovely banjo music on the radio yesterday. Thought of you and DH!

    Hi Mary Ann, sounds like you won the lottery tonight! The staff lottery, that is! lol Hope the rest of your shift is uneventful.

    Good morning. Rough night so far. Had a client display SIB and property destruction. Went to lunch and had a flat tire.

    Besides that, not too bad... could always get worse.
