Just a minute

Two things to post tonight. One requires a minute of your time, and the other is how I spent mine.
1. Taken from the ANG digest:

"Please support this wonderful program. Lots of us have military family members overseas, but many don't receive the support we give our own family members.
XEROX IS DOING SOMETHING COOL. If you go to this web site, _www.LetsSayThanks.com_ ( you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second.Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do. We can never say enough thank you's. Thanks for taking to time to support our military! Please tell all your friends too!"
P.S. I used to work for Xerox Corporation and I am very pleased to see that they do this.

2. The next pattern row is worked with a single strand of the Kreinik #4 205C in the Modified Rhodes Stitch all the way around the outside. As you can see, I got two sides done and over half of the third side! Talk about a fast stitch! I will finish this stitch tomorrow and move on. This piece is almost finished!

This is a wonderful project - my James (#5 son) came back from chasing terrorists over there only 1 1/2 years ago - it was AWFUL - and those guys would have been thrilled to have some loving support and recognition of this kind - especially at Christmas. He spent his 34th b'day (Christmas Eve) in the desert with no sanitary facilities or much of anything else - so please do send those cards!!!

This step is really fast. It is a lovely project, Pat, and the cards for soldiers idea terrific!
