Thank a Veteran

We came to Mississippi to donate to the Indians today, and tonight I'm writing from our hotel room. Surprise, it's raining here too.
I just opened the curtains and looked out to see a flock of geese flying overhead. I think the lead goose must have been hitting the sauce because he was all over the sky and the rest of the team were struggling to maintain the V. I could almost hear the followers - WOULD YOU PLEASE MAKE UP YOUR FREAKIN' MIND!!!!!!
This is the first time we've ventured down here in almost a year. The state of the economy has affect this place too. One of the large hotels that's part of the complex is only opened on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Over all, the economy seems to be doing better. There for a while, people were afraid to spend money on anything except necessities. My research is unscientific, but it seems stores are doing fairly well.
When fear rules, people circle the wagons. I think the media helps fan the flames of fear. Good news doesn't sell that well.
I hope you all have had a great Memorial Day and I hope you found the time to thank a veteran.
