    Let's say an extra Pet Talk prayer today for all these unfortunate soldiers. I feel like I can not give them enough recognition and respect, no matter what I do.

    Thank you again, Gretchen.


    I've been Boo'd...
    Thanks Barry!

    Two from Chicago. So sad. Some flags are at half staff and some are not. I think they ought to be and hopefully for tomorrow for Veterans' Day, in light of this event more will be (at least around here). Please, God, please give us a peaceful world.
