Dear Matthew Broderick : A Love Letter

While I recognize that you are a whole person who can drink older than I am, Monica and Richard made it work and I believe we can too. I’m not sure how many people will remember this little known film, but you did a version of Cinderella all those years ago.  I made my mother rent it from the video store nearly every week insisting that it would never get old.  At 5 years old, I had found my soul mate and just knew you and I were meant to be together.

Funny Deployment Stories: TAD

You all may remember my Deployment Series in which a number of lovely ladies shared their deployment experiences and their tips to survive.  But deployments aren’t always all bad.  Sometimes there are some pretty funny things that happen and I’m happy to share with you a few stories that show the funny side of deployments.  If you have a funny deployment story you’d like to share, please email me!  I’d love to highlight your story! Hi, I’m Holly. I blog, intermittently, over at The Robertson Clann. I say intermittently because I’m an awful blogger. But I’m great on facebook! Probably only because I can access it on my phone and it’s easier. I’m a lurker though. If your post shows up in my feed I read it. Or in my inbox… if not then, well, I probably don’t. Anyway, I said I’d get this post emailed by the end of the Continue reading Funny Deployment Stories: TAD
