“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Weekend fun and togetherness

- Feeling much better, thanks all. Apparently it was only a 24 hour death.

- We spent the morning getting some long-overdue housecleaning done, to include work by the children which was much-hated but necessary. A bit past spring, but it was really our first good chance for it.

- Took the time to help a worthy cause at lunch - Cooking With the Troops was having a fundraiser for one of their houses which helps wounded soldiers and their families during their recovery period. It was nice to help with a little bit of cash and to talk with some other veterans. Definitely a worthwhile bit of your time if they ever do anything near you. Though it would have been nice to have them realize my wife is a veteran as well!

- Then it was off to the bookstore, with everyone finding at least something to enjoy. Books and such for the kiddos, a DVD set 80's TV series I'd been seeking, and nice time together as a family.

Enjoying a quiet night at home now & preparing for the birthday tomorrow. Plan to break in the new grill & be grateful for my wonderful family; far worse ways to celebrate another trip around the sun.
