I don’t know what to say…

…other than I can’t believe I’m putting a yellow ribbon on my tree for a second time.

Bring them all home safe, dammit.

Including my family.

Get home safe


  1. Good idea. And a nice ribbon, too.

  2. You know exactly how I feel about this Erin. Best wishes for you and your family.

  3. I hope your family returns home safely. As a military wife, I know how much this whole thing sucks.

  4. Guh. Suckage.

  5. Here’s where I get to sound like a total dumbarse again…. but here goes.

    Why the massive yellow ribbon on the tree?

    Mind you… it’s a bloody awesome ribbon!


  6. I just thought that I’d let you know that this script error is still at the top of the page when I visit. I don’t know if you can fix it or not, just wanted you to know though.

  7. I notice you made sure it cleared the bottle opener…

  8. I’d send you some hugs but I’m not an annoying tard.
    Love you guys, though.

    Hope he (and the rest of them) makes it back alright. I’ve never had to deal with anything like this – the last set of people in my family who went off to war were my Grandfathers in WWII. I can’t imagine what it would be like for any family member to do two tours, let alone one.

    Best Wishes,

  10. I hope your family and friends are all returned to you safely. I know how terrifying this is. My thoughts are with you and them.

  11. Regardless of politics….
    1) First and foremost, THANK YOU and your family for your service.
    2) Our thoughts are with you and your family. May this war end now.
