Thank you LZ27.   I am orginally from Visalia and Sacramento is where I loved to go shop, so I think I will fit in just fine.   Is Fat City still in old town Sacramento?

It was my pleasure to have you all meet one of the lights of my life.  As we left, Bob asked, 'Mom, why do you always put me in these ackward situations?"  He is such a shy reserved guy!  Paymaster, I heard from dollyslaffn...she's been sick but has PROMISED to ship her pillowcases to me tomorrow.  Hopefully they will get to me pretty quickly so I can get them to you.

I know many of us have been following the drama unfold in Japan.  We received this note from our ombudsonman last night. 


The Surface Force Ombudsman Team is looking for assistance in collecting non-cash items to help boost the food locker to better support our displaced Navy families as they come through San Diego.  So far there are 35 families that have come to San Diego and are being well taken care of by Fleet and Family Service Center and other resource teams.  These families are staying in hotels and have arrived with whatever baggage they brought.


In order to help us better take care of our displaced Navy families, we are asking for your assistance.  If you would like to donate the below items to help out.  Some of our great Ombudsmen will be manning up the Force Ombudsman office on the following dates and times to accept these generous collections: 


Saturday, March 26th from 12noon to 2pm,
Tuesday, 29 March from 9am-12pm, and
Friday, April 1st from 10am-12pm.


Items needed to be collected:

   Personal care/toiletries
   Snacks for families with children
   Fresh fruit and vegetables (hotel has fridge/microwave)
   Baby diapers
   Baby formula
   Baby wipes
   Baby toys
   Microwavable foods
   Coloring books/crayons/toys/games for children
No cash can be accepted please.


Please bring your donations to the Force Ombudsman office aboard Naval Base San Diego, Bldg #265, across the parking lot from FFSC and up the hill from the commissary.


Saturday, March 26th from 12pm-2pm,

Tuesday, 29 March from 9am-12pm, and

Friday, April 1st from 10am-12pm
I did check and we can not just send money.  Like me I know several of us have families and dependents stationed in the San Diego area.  Perhaps these family members would be willing to do the shopping and deliever, if you are able to fund the purchases. 
I am shipping money to my DIL today and she will be doing my shopping for me.  Perhaps some of you can do the same? 
I just know how I would feel as a mother if it was my DIL and grandchildren that had to be displaced.  Not all familes have the means to swoop in and provide for their familes as Dave and I could if it was ours. God bless.

Good Morning!  Had a wonderful day eating waffles and packing up pillowcases with some of my favorite ladies!!!

Ginger, Brrrrr, Michigan, your client couldn't come here?  LOL  Try and stay warm.

I think your hands hurt because you and Dawn tape up all the boxes.

Alaina,  It was so nice meeting your son Bob yesterday.  What a trooper he was for putting up with us as long as he did.  LOL

Comment by Paymaster on March 27, 2011 at 11:22am

Wish you could have been here too Ginger.


I don't know about the rest of you but my hands are sore today.


Alaina...It was such a treat for you to stop by and let all of us meet the very handsome Bob.  He was so friendly putting up with all us Navy mom's!
