Now is your chance to say thank you to our troops! The Bert Show is collecting letters of thanks so every single soldier stationed or deployed outside the United States can receive a letter of gratitude on Thanksgiving Day. We want to give our troops a "Big Thank You" with a little taste of home this Thanksgiving.
In 2007, Bert Show listeners successfully wrote 375,000 letters to troops all over the world! This year, we need your help to express a BIG THANK YOU to 400,000+ U.S. soldiers.
Here are the specs you need to know when writing your letter:

This year our theme was a jazz/New Orleans funeral march and we honored Fluffy. It was a lot of fun, even though I sat in the middle of the hearse and didn't march. We had the usual "walking dead" and then jazz musicians who pretended to play the funeral tunes we had blasting.
The songs played during our march were old gospel hymns. I'm sure the few people who were calling us satanists didn't even realize that. It's a shame when people aren't open minded. No one at the haunted house is satanic and what we do isn't satanic. It's all for fun and entertainment and our proceeds go to charity every.single.year. While we aren't represented by a church, it doesn't mean we're evil people.
Back to topic....the parade was a success even though we had a small music malfunction right as we got into the heart of the square of Dahlonega. Our soldiers kept marching onward though clapping and dancing as we marched without a beat (eventually we did get the music back).
The whole point of the theme we chose was to honor our friend Lance who passed away in August. We had a float with a giant photo of him on it and most probably weren't aware, but we also carried his ashes in a small coffin on the float. He would be tickled pink to know he got to walk the parade one last time.
I'm letting my limbs re-coop today before another work week...whew. Who knew at 26 you could be so tired??

- I'm loving the smell of TIDE detergent. I know it's been around forever, but still...I just love the smell of it on our clothes and towels.
- I'm loving every one's happy blog posts lately. It seems it's the year of Disney and I'm jealous, but in a happy way of course. I LOVE Disney :)
- I'm loving that we got The Lion King boxset last week of which inside was a copy of the 3D/blu ray of the original movie and it looks UHH-MAZ-ING on our 3D tv!!
- I'm loving that Tim Allen returned to TV this week in a new sit-com. The premiere was funny and it looks promising.
- I'm loving that HOUSE is finally back even though I was completely asleep during Monday's episode because it was delayed an hour due to baseball - blah baseball!!
- I'm loving that the haunted house is almost over and we'll be able to have some money back. Driving to/from Dahlonega twice a week has really put a toll on our budget.
- I'm loving that we got a pretty sweet deal from Georgia Natural Gas for 6mos. We only have gas heat, so there's no need for us to have it on year-round. We got a guaranteed rate of 0.599/therm for 6mos and 1/2 off the connection fee - YAY!
- I'm still loving our crockpot and only wish I had been using it sooner...sheesh what was I thinking?
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup green pepper
1 pint taco sauce
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can cream of mushroom
1 can refried beans
2 cups cheddar cheese
Brown beef in saucepan with onion and green pepper, drain. Combine all ingredients (except lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream) in crock pot and cook on high for 1 hour (or until cheese is melted).
Serve immediately with tortilla chips, lettuce, tomato and sour cream.

In a little under 4yrs I'll be 30 - WHAT?!? Anyone else think time is slipping by?
I'm going to take in everything I have in my life and really make an effort to appreciate it for what it is good or bad. I'm not perfect which is why I can't say I AM period, but I AM going to make the best effort possible and maybe you should do the same if you haven't already.

In just two months, Hardy & I will be on-board the Disney Dream. I have no idea what to expect, except greatness. I've never been disappointed with anything at Walt Disney World and I can only imagine they provide the same excellent service/features on their cruise ships.
The haunted house opened this weekend, we had almost 300 customers come through in total, that's unbelievable for our first weekend. Generally we are slow and the numbers pick up the further into the season we go. We even had 3 people wet their pants and one little boy passed out. I'm happy we've had so much success already and can only hope the numbers continue to grow. I am exhausted of course, but alive and that's what matters most :)
