Leslie Langtry - Author, Patriot - Now With Cute, New Glasses

Sgt. Jessica Barney, Moi, and Sgt. Jacqueline Kessler

I attended Sgt. Assassin's military formal dinner this weekend. And I found out that I have fans in the US Army! That's right. Leslie Langtry is serving her country...without the really hard basic training or complete lack of style in military-issue shoes.

I'm pictured here (aren't my new glasses cute? - the ones my kids didn't notice for two days until I told/screamed at them) with the lovely Sgts. Jessica and Jacqueline - both who have read all my books and loved them, naturalmente. They even insisted I have this picture taken with them. Of course, I acquiesced because I love America (and because if you praise me, you can pretty much get me to do anything...well, except for lick a spider - I'm not stupid enough to do that again).

There is something deeply satisfying in knowing I made these women laugh. And even more so because they do a tough job. Both served in Iraq with Sgt. Assassin for a year. That was a tough deployment. I'd like to think I made it a little bit more tolerable. But then, I'd also like to think I don't have a swearing problem - just a mild, slightly more offensive form of Tourette Syndrome that only happens when I'm mad at my kids, usually at Walmart.

So, here's to you, Sgt. Barney and Sgt. Kessler! And thank you for all you do!

Thanks Brandy! Where can I get a hat like that for my cats?

You all look great!

Heh! The hat is actually a Barbie Aurora's crown. *g*
