I thought they were fascinating. Here's a few more of them...
"The Unknown Soldier"
Lieutenant (later Lieutenant Commander) Walter Lewis Chewning of Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, (February 19, 1914 - February 4, 1990) steps on the burning fuel tank of an F6F-3 Hellcat flown by Ensign (later Lieutenant) Byron Milton Johnson of Potter, Nebraska (May 19, 1920 - February 20, 2005) to effect a successful rescue of the pilot on November 10, 1943.

I have a few words I'd like to share with my readers. Don't worry, It's not bad ;-) Those of you who have been around for a while know that MyWorld has gone trough changes. I've always been a little random about the things I choose to post, that part still works for me because many things interest me. But clearly something doesn't work at the moment, or I'd be posting way more. I've been contemplating over this for a while, because I really do care about my blog, and it's presence online. And I am sad that MyWorld has fallen short of what I know it can be. It's "My World" and MY Responsibility to make it work.
My life has really changed lately, including my reasons for posting. I use to crave posting as a way to "Escape". That need is no longer there, since I'm finally in a place where "My Rules" apply in real life. I have so much to look forward to, and the only person standing in my way is myself. I know better now, and I'd like to have my wings back, thank you ;-)
As far as my blog goes, I've come up with a basic plan. A little more structure, that's all. Something I've avoided in the past. I have different goals now, and they do include a blog I can enjoy. So I will focus on posting more often. I have lots of material, and I'm constantly collecting things I stumble on in the interest of sharing them. I just need to take the whip out on myself, so to speak. Find a format that works for me, in the life I have now, and get posting. Obviously, I'll be tweaking a few things over time. I wanna bring back some favorites, and hopefully share more personal stuff as time goes on. No pressure, just LIFE <3 And way more posting ;-) -MissK
Above freezing? Really? I must be dreaming. I'm not sure what to make of it, all this dripping water and the need to take off layers of clothes in the spur of the moment. One thing is certain though, this is definitely a glimmer of hope that spring really does exist.
The sun is shinning outside and I have to take it in. I'm heading back out in a few for an extra dose of Vitamin D. This damn cabin fever has gone on long enough.
I've been busy moving snow all morning, slicing a trench in boob height, really dense snow drifts to gain access to the storage cabin in the back of the lot. The lady next door is moving out, and she needed to get her shit out, asap. So I volunteered to take care of it. What I wouldn't do for a body rub right now. I will be stiff in the morning, that's for sure. Now, I'm all done with the trench, and gave her a hand lugging the bins to her car. I should stay in and relax, but I can't help myself, I have to go back.... it's sunny!! And warm!! ;-)
