Follow Friday #22

Hey peeps! As most of you know Follow Friday is hosted by the awesome Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, so go ahead and sign up :D

HOPPERS: If you are hopping by and especially FOLLOWING, please leave a comment down there, i do read all of them and visit all of your lovely blogs! Don't be shy, and also, IF YOU FOLLOW ME I WILL TRY AND RETURN THE FAVOUR, so spread the love :D



Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.

In real life, my soldier has already gone and saved the world, and paid the price. My great uncle Arne (Ar-Nuh) went and fought in WWII in the Air Force, and even though he left behind a young family i know that they're extremely proud of what he did.
On a more recent note: a friend of mine from school recently got deployed to Iran. Last time we spoke he sounded like he was in good spirits, so i wish him luck and hope that nothing too exciting happens, we all want him to come home safe.

So who are your real life/fiction heroes? This Rememberance day is a great day to celebrate them, and i hope you guys made your wish at 11:11am! If you didn't, you'll just have to stay up til 11:11pm instead :D

Have an awesome weekend,
Imo <l:)>

  2. It definitely seems hard to have lost loved ones in war. I don't have any family that was in any that I'm aware of. So I chose fictional!

  7. Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

    As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

    In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

    Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
