Welcome to 2012 and welcome back!
I took the road less traveled but had fun helping Colin create his blog while I was thinking what to do with this one.
And then it came to me...
CARRY ON WITH DACHSHUNDSTRONG!!!
No one said you had to limit yourself to 1 blog?
If so, I didn't get the memo!
So for what it's worth, I'm back.
With a few tweaks...
I have been asked to not mention my daughters.
I have no problem with that...
Land of the free and home of the brave and all that jazz...
But Michael has put no such handcuffs on me and since I started this blog because of my military son and my love for Dachshunds, Michael is fair game. Only tastefully, of course. Nothing about his life in his new apartment in Richmond with BFF Nick. He is realizing the dream he's always had...to grow up and return to living in Richmond, VA where he was raised.
But, this mom WILL continue to brag about 1 Lt's military accomplishments, INCLUDING his transfer to Virginia where he is a Platoon Leader AND his promotion to Captain which is just around the corner!!! Michael is the least pretentious man you'll ever know. He considers what he does in the military as what he is supposed to do in carrying on his mission and the mission of his great uncle and grandfather.
And in keeping with that, this is the latest picture he had made several weeks ago to go in his IPerms....military file.
Sorry, had to take out the incriminating info but it doesn't affect the good lookin' soldier! And yes, yes I am very prejudiced!
In another post I will wrap up Christmas 2011. In a nutshell, it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
But that was then~this is now, and I BELIEVE we will just roll onto 2012.
Good to be with all of you again.
