Last week I let you know that I was going to shamelessly ask you to contribute CDs and DVDs for a media library for Bill and his guys in Iraq. No politics; just friendly and meaningful support. So, here’s the deal:
First off, Everybody give a shout out to the friendly folks at Langley! You want to get your blog read? Print a post with the APO address of a high ranking officer. Then, I’d like to thank Jim, who is running Mix Mania and collecting second CDs to send. And then, a big thank you to Edgy Mama (that’s ANNEFITTEN, altogether now) who was the FIRST to deliver with a bunch of CDs that showed up yesterday. It was an interesting assortment and I’ve made a vow not to pull out really good ones and keep them. Everything goes. So, do me a favor. Do Bill and all his guys (he’s got a pretty big gathering of our troops over there) a favor:
1) Go over to Jim’s if you’re doing MixMania and see his post.
2) E-mail me if you have any DVDs or CDs you would like sent over to the media lending library we’re trying to build for these guys. When they’re not out in 112 degree sandstorms, fleas and mortar fire, they’re laying low and looking for stuff to watch and listen to. You e-mail me and I’ll send you my snail mail address. I’m sending a package from here July 10, so hop to, please. Rght now the only DVD is my copy of Winged Migration- sure to be a BIG hit. You know you can top that. No matter how many you send, I’ll mail them out.
3) In today’s comment section, please say Hi to Bill! I’ll print this whole post out at the end of the day tomorrow and mail it off to him with all your messages of good cheer. When I spoke to him yesterday he hadn’t gotten any mail yet and was having a down day between heat and work. So, I said, hold your horses, I’ll get something out. Any nice, creative, supportive or funny word you have to tack on to this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
