Memorial Day and more...

As Memorial Day came and passed, there were some good things and some not so good things that happened.

Well, beginning the weekend off, I graduated from John S. Battle High School on Saturday, officially becoming free from school-well, high school.  I start at Virginia Highlands Community College sometime in August, so wish me luck.  Yesterday, the actual observance of Memorial Day, there was a funeral for Robbie Light of Tennessee, killed from an Improvised Explosive Device, or IED.  Security was tight for fear of funeral protests.  James Webb did not come to Bristol like there was a rumor about.  I went to Dollywood to celebrate Memorial Day and graduation.  Those lines were sooo long!  I never want to stand in lines like that again!  Anyway, I got my tax refund check back today.   The money for that goes to pay for a car.

Has anyone seen the Bob Corker for Senate commercials?  Especially the one about immigration?  "Secure our borders, no amnesty,..."   Okay, Dubya, whatever you say...

James Webb Appearance?

James Webb is rumored to appear in Bristol on May 29th, 2006, Memorial Day for those of you who are in the dark about national holidays.  How fitting that Webb should supposedly decide to show up in majority Republican Bristol on a day that honors American soldiers.  Webb, being a Marine rifle platoon and company commander back in the Vietnam War, will fit right in with the other vets.  Here's to Webb and the upcoming primaries!
 
29 days until Primaries!
