9:41pm: Gettysburg
My everyday life has been hectic since we got back so this is the first time I have been able to post anything.
This was me and my husbands first MAJOR event and at this moment all I can think to say is, WOW!!!! Did anyone else go?
[Unknown LJ tag]We left Indiana Thursday after my husband got off work at 3:3o pm. I have a little kids map of the US that I have always kept and colored in the states that I have been in and this trip allowed me to add two new states. W. Virginia and Pennsylvania. Next summer I hope to add more.
The whole weekend it either rained, was humid or when the sun came out you sweltered. Beyond that it was a fun weekend.
We drove until the rain and the darn narrow Interstate got to us and we got a hotel for the night. The next morning we got up and was on our way by 5 am. We got there and found our unit, set up our tent and was ready by the time they were letting the public in.
My husbands unit mustered for the first battle of the weekend then headed off. I stayed in our camp site cause I was expecting another female of our unit and I wanted to finish setting up the tent.
When the battle was over and our unit came back my husband wasn't with them. Of course all the bad things instantly ran through my mind then he walked up with someone. The humidity had gotten to him and on the walk back to camp he was suddenly perpendicular to the ground. It effected him enought that he was unable to battle the rest of the weekend. We spent the rest of the weekend touring the sutlers and the living history village.
One time while walking from the sutlers I was passing the Union guys heading to the battle field and I kept seeing guys darting out trying to leave formation. I thought 'this is too soon for them to desert' then after the third guy did it I heard some ladies 'yelling' for the guys. I turned and saw why the men were attempting to 'desert'. 5 or 6 soiled doves standing out in their unmentionables Yoo Hooing the guys. I started laughing and kept walking. As I passed another unit the officer on his horse saw this and told one of his guys to break away so he could chase him down. Which he did, pleasing the crowd. The ladies were part of the living villiage.
Sunday came and my husband and I were leaving early. We packed up and left just before the first battle started. We wanted to see the real battlefields. We got to the visitors center and found out that even a self drive would take at least 2 hours and we wanted to be on the road before noon so we found out the location to 2 monuments we wanted to see, toured the visitors center museum and I got me a frigd magnet then headed out to see the 2 monuments.
After seen them we started on our way home. Along the way we made plans that sometime next summer we were going to go back to Gettysburg take 2 days to tour there and then head south to Appamatox and Antidum, sorry about the spelling, and Harper's Ferry.

Our unit went to Hasting MI this past weekend for a reenactment there but my husband and I had too many commetments this past weekend to go. Our next reenactment will be Jackson MI. I can't wait.

11:14pm: Fanfic: Horus
I love The Mummy and The Mummy Returns especially the charactor Ardeth Bay. I got the idea after I saw The Mummy Returns in the theater the last time. Where did Ardeth get Horus? He didn't have him in the first movie. I am working on compaion stories to go with this one. I hope to finish them soon.

5:47pm:


You are The Moon


Hope, expectation, Bright promises.


The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.


The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

6:10pm: Ten Things Meme
Courtesy of gileswench, I got the letter J. Here are 10 things I love that begin with the letter J.

1. John Wayne. He has always been a hero of mine since I was a little girl.
2. June. Ah the days of being in school and June started summer vacation. And my family reunions are in June.
3. July. The 4th with the fireworks, picnics and spending time with family and friends.
4. Jokes. I love good jokes because I love to laugh. Sometimes even the bad ones are funny.
5. Joy. Such a simple word and yet can convene a whole lot of meanings. From the simple joy of being held by a loved one to the JOY of the first time your babe you have carried for nine month is placed in your arms.
6. Jump. When I was younger I use to love to jump rope and jump off things.
7. Jelly. To me Grape Jelly is the best. The only way I like grapes.
8. Jellybeans. Oh the many varieties but especially Jellie Bellies.
9. Journey. 1. The 80’s rock band, especially Steve Perry. 2. To take a trip, ah the places I have been to. A great deal of the U.S., Guam and South Korea. Plus the word is more harmonious than the word trip.
Last but not least.
10. Juicy romance novels. I love romances set no later than 1865 and before in England or Scotland. And I love the ones have humor in them.

RATING PG

DISCLAIMER Don't own them, just the ones I make up. Don't know them. Just having fun. I promise to return them unharmed.

Author's Note: I'm taking a little liberty with the Angel episode. I'm making it so Spikes hands weren't cut off, he was only unconscious when Andrew and the Slayers showed up to take Dana. Also Andrew's explanation as to where Buffy and Giles are was a bit vague. So I'm making them in Cleveland visiting. They also know Spike is alive.

11:11pm: Just Tooooo Funny!
Hello!

I work at my home counties clerk office prepping old documents to be microfilmed.

What I have found funny is that I have run across people with the last name of Giles several times.

But today I found the best one. A woman with the first name of Rheuperta.
