I sang like a bird until I reached puberty - after that I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. Malcolm Watts

Interesting! I can sing, but I am NOT "American Idol" material! TRUST me. LOL

Where I was...Sept. 11, 2001 (Article) - 9/11/2007 12:54:22 AM
We were standing in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles because my son was taking his road test for his license. I brought my 9" television along to break up the boring line and could not believe what I was watching. My home, my friends, my family were all under attack. My husband was called on his cell phone to return to work. He just got off at 6:30 am and had to get back. Two American Airline airplanes were down. He works for American Airlines and I begged him not to go to work. Spent all day on the telephone trying to reach everyone. May were hurt, some permanently and one a firefighter was killed. His body was found six months later. He left behind a 2 1/2 and 5 year old.
A sad day for everyone,

I had just awakened, was drinking a Diet Coke and havin' a ciggie to wake up (usual morning routine), had the TV on as background noise, when the bulletin came on, about the plane crashing into the World Trade Center.
Thought it an accident: here in Dallas, there's an airport (Love Field) near downtown, you see big planes flying 'round buildings all the time.
Could have been.
Then came the second plane: an accident, my FOOT.
Had to go to work, did not see the news until late that night (after taking twin sister to church: she turned off the TV when I'd left and refused to watch). Wrote the first of my many poems that night.
Haven't stopped: that dark September day, one life was saved: Mine.
Thank you for sharing where you were.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Always remember and never forget.
