“You are not going out with that boy unless his parents are driving and that's that. I'm not just Spitting Grits here, young lady!”

A Remembrance

Today, the 10th anniversary of the horrendous Sept. 11, 2001, airline hijackers’ destruction of New York’s World Trade Center Towers, Washington’s Pentagon, and their failed third attempt thwarted by the heroic efforts of the passengers on the airliner, we remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost to such insane fanaticism. We remember where we were and what we were doing. We praise the efforts of all the first responders and other heroes who helped save many lives.

Let us also take time to look into tonight’s sky and the beautiful September full moon. Maybe there is balance in the Universe. I hope for that, as well as the ability to keep moving forward away from 9/11/01.

Several home projects are luring me away from Spittin’ Grits. I feel the need to get them done. I will therefore be the Wayward Blogger for a while. I hope to return by October 1. I hope you will bear with me and also return.
