My pets were talking about something that happened in Church this morning. During the service the preacher mentioned a young man in the congregation and asked him to stand. He was given a standing ovation. He was home from Iraq and on his way to Afghanistan. He was not in uniform. He was glad to see everybody and appreciated the welcome home. There was a couple sitting with him that appeared to be his parents. They looked rather stressed.
I don't know what this was about but I do hear Iraq mentioned occasionally in subdued voices. I know that one of Lucky's pets went there and everybody was glad when he came home. I know because although they don't have tails to wag they do the wide mouth thing.
