Thank you, Mr. President (not political)

Living on a military post has it’s advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages are far less than the advantages IMO. The only downfall I can come up with is you are subject to random vehicle searches as you enter post. Well, granted that shouldn’t be a problem except when you have a tired screaming toddler in the backseat, it is  110 degrees and the groceries are in the back seat with said screaming tired toddler. Those guards finish their search very fast under those conditions. The advantages that come to mind are: you have to show your ID every time you enter post, the MPs roll by every 10 minutes, crime rate is almost non-existant, no loud noise after 10 pm. And my all time favorite, at midnight last night they locked down post, can’t get on and ya can’t get off. Why? Because President Bush is giving a speech and will be on post approximately 1 hr. Thank you, Mr. President!president_bush1

Have you figured out why I’m thanking the President? I CAN’T GO TO WORK AND I HAVE TO STAY HOME AND SEW. *insert me dancing here* I think I will just take the rest of the week off.

Sew let me see, what shall I sew. Start a new quilt using the fabric Betsy sent? Quilt the Zoo Animals for Greg. Work on my Pretty ‘n’ Pink. Decisions decisions.

Happy quilting!

    I know exactly what you went through since I too lived on a military installation for many years. Once you leave, you do miss the safety net.
    I hope you got some sewing done.
    I had a great sewing day

  2. Heee! I live near (and work in) D.C. – all the President (and the Veep, and various dignitaries and diplomats) ever do here is muck about with the traffic. Not enough to stop us from getting to work… but enough to make us plenty late from time to time!
    They messed up everything here. The kids live within walking distance to the airfield and I looked out the window and secret service was standing on every corner. DH went outside and was told to go back inside and stay. I suppose you could say they weren’t friendly. 😉

    I am rolling on the floor, wetting my pants. I can actually picture those guards quickly searching your car as the toddler is screaming that ear piercing scream that toddlers usually give out to strange people. The baby is saying…..”Get me out of this car seat, into my warm and wonderful home…..somebody…..NOW!”
    I don’t know where that came from…….I’m okay now….Have a great weekend.
    Let me tell you, that boy can let out a blood curdling scream that will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

  4. I agree with Betsy about the “safety net”….I miss the security of a base living, but I do love my out of the country type living. 🙂 Granted I do miss the convinences of the hospital and commissary 😦
    I agree with you and Betsy about feeling safe on post.

    I’m glad President Bush is finally being put to good use. Lucky you no work and a sewing day instead! I’m off for three days but brought home a pile of paperwork that will take me two days to catch up on.
