Interesting Places

Let me tell you about my son-in-law's travels.
He has found the most interesting places to visit.
As you can see the taxi service here is amazing!

And its service is available both day and night.

The hotels are very unique - a little on the casual side,
and you really get to know your neighbor.

There are interesting art galleries to enjoy...

right on the streets.

A variety of restaurants...

extraordinary scenery to enjoy...

and exotic animals parade right up to your vehicle!

(Well, maybe I'm being a little facetious.)

But my SIL (alias soldier boy) did tell me about this website below.
The soldiers sign up for it on-line.
They can then pick up a free cup of coffee
donated by generous kind people like you.

Of course, it's more than just a free cup of coffee.
It's letting those protecting
your freedom know you care! :)
You can buy a soldier a cup of coffee at Green Beans. Just click HERE.
I'm sharing this with other most interesting posts at

Such a powerful post. A great reminder to pray for our boys - and to see what they are going thru on a day to day basis. I know we can't even imagine.

A big thanks to your daughter and your son in law for his sacrifice on our behalf. May God keep him safe.

Thanks for letting us know about the Cup of Joe - that is a neat thing - I'm heading there right now!

Great post Marsha……We need to do all we can to help the soldiers. There is another website called AnySoldier.com. That helps get troops not only the necessities we take for granted at home, but things they can’t get where they are. Please thank your SIL and his troops for us @ Cottagesisters!

Great post! We are thankful for our men & women in service on foreign soil as well as here at home. My club just put together numerous care packages to send. My son has also been there.
I enjoyed the travelogue.

Me again. :) I also am sick of this weather. Yes I am staying warm, as long as I stay inside. We have sunshine today, just wished it was warmer. I have an appt. this afternoon and dread getting out.

Marsha....what a really wonderful post! Since I don't presently have any family members in service I can only imagine the sacrifice it must be for your SIL and the rest of your family. I do so appreciate it. And thank you for the coffee link....it's a wonderful idea that I will tell others about too. :)
