Boot Camp Mania has swept the nation…
well, perhaps not quite a mania, but I know a lot of you were “in” for Week 2. The challenge was harder than I expected. The 300 squats combined with the wall squats were almost my undoing, but I pushed through. So, let’s start by congratulating those who were able to finish Week 2. Hoorah!! Hooray!! Hooah!! Walk proud, talk proud, and BE proud. Roll Call for Week 1 is up if you want to check it out. I will have Roll Call for Week 2 up by Wednesday.
If you would like to grab a badge for Week 2 for your blog/website/personal calendar here they are:
If you were unable to complete the Boot Camp Challenge this week, no worries, there is always next week!
Since today is Memorial Day we have shifted “It’s a Jimmy Thing” to later in the week.
A week or so ago, I posted a mosaic of my wonderful birthday gifts. Among them was a scrapbook my Aunt Penny made me with pictures of my grandfather and grandmother (on my dad’s side) and their families. Thanks to my Aunt Penny, I now have some pictures to post of my grandfather, Thomas V. Dale, who was killed at Iwo Jima. On this Memorial Day I pay tribute to him and to all our service men and women and their families for their sacrifices.
My grandfather carried this picture into battle and it was returned with his personal belongings. I didn’t know my grandfather, but I miss him just the same.
