Mark Twain Said It Best...

‎"I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure."


Dave and I got the news at the same time as most Americans who were watching "live" TV tonight.  We can't believe it!

We knew something was up when Dave got a phone call during church this morning. I was convinced it was related to our killing Qaddafi's son last night with a NATO airstrike in Libya. Dave's commander was on vacation so Dave had to take the lead to get over to the base ASAP for a meeting. It was rather embarrassing to yank the kids out from the 2nd row pews in the middle of the hymn of the day, but I guess by now most of the folks will understand why.

We've been virtually "celebrating" with our Facebook and Twitter friends, first by posting this You Tube audio clip:



Then by posting that quote above by Mark Twain.

If it weren't for our early mornings tomorrow, I'm sure Dave and I would be pouring scotch and tequila and toasting the victory right now. It's neat to see the Americans celebrating in the streets in Washington, D.C.

I can't wait to find out which great Americans were actually there during this mission, and which one pulled the trigger that actually took him out. As one of my Facebook friends declared in his status, that individual will probably never have to buy his own beer again!

But let's keep our diligence America! Terrorist organizations are like animals that can regenerate lost body parts, they can regrow leadership and inspiration so we need to keep aware!
