Christmas Wishes For Our Troops

I always like to post a special greeting for our troops, especially those deployed at Christmas time.  I enjoy sending out a special acknowledgement knowing they are working hard and won’t be able to be home to enjoy the  holiday with their families.   I want them to know that even while we are celebrating here with loved ones, we include them in our thoughts and good wishes for the day.

This year I stumbled upon a highly rated app that provides lovely frames for photos and I thought it would be fun to use one or two for my post.  The app has frames for a wide variety of themes so I typed in “Merry Christmas to our troops” and “military Christmas.”  To my surprise and great delight many possible photo frames popped up but the following couple caught my attention.

Geez, I thought, now I know why this app is so highly rated.  The women must love this!  I spent the next couple of hours trying to make the thing work.  I finally gave up in complete frustration.  No matter how many times I clicked the damn thing I never got a Marine or sexy Soldier to pop up, not even after I uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times.  I can’t for the life of me figure out why this awful app had a 5-star rating.  It makes beautiful promises but certainly doesn’t deliver!

After coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to use the app to get a Marine or sexy Soldier to appear, I continued my search for something to use in my post.  I found a face frame in the app that had been used quite a bit.  I figured it was popular so the guys must like it.  I went ahead and gave it a try.  This was the result.

Hmmmm.  I appear to have gotten some sort of sunburn out there in the desert, but just on my face.  Guess I should have worn a hat but you have to give me props for making it through the sand wearing bedroom heels.  That takes skill, you know!

I finally gave up on the app for good.  It didn’t give me a Marine.  It didn’t give me a sexy Soldier but it did manage to give me sunburn.  It clearly didn’t work properly so I decided to just stick with my regular, non-fancy, unframed photos.

Sending you warm wishes across the miles.
