  1. OK, Jim, I can put my eyeballs back in now I've finished your narrative! And a damned good read it was too, my friend, capturing the whole flavor of an experience that I hope this country never has to go through again. Your feelings about not being with your young wife carried so much poignancy that my eyes were moist several times. Although I was never in a Combat Zone situation I did two years in the RAF as ATC and, like you, enjoyed the experience, except for missing the girl friend I had at the time, so could relate partly to your loss of not being with her. All in all, a damned interesting read, with a last thought that no matter what our feelings are about the Wars our so-called leaders involve us in, our support for the grunts that do the actual fighting and support for them should never waver as it did after Vietnam. Rightly or wrongly, they are our people and deserve 100% backing! God bless you and yours, Jim, and may you all have a Blessed Christmas.
  2. AMEN!
  3. Damn, no boobs! Except the author I guess! Hey, OG, from one old fart to another, I just missed being here in the States in time for that shindig, so I'd really like to see what you experienced as a first hand observer. So, yeah, I'd like to read it, buddy. Thanks. My e-mail addy is "brianharlow2@aol.com"
  4. Love restorations like that! Thanks, Donnie.
  5. Sun, Sun, and more Sun! No prob, though, as we had a good 2" of rain a week ago. Life's tough here in California!
  6. Hey, Rutabaga, if China is so wonderful, how come they pollute more than any other country, and you have to wear a mask outdoors in Shanghai just to breathe? They are the most ignorant people on earth in regards to pollution. You want to make a difference, move there and start spewing all your Liberal crap to them and see how fast your butt goes to jail, then try to recruit a few like-minded souls and see how long you'll last before they ship you back here. Do you realize how good this country is to you? How many people have died trying to ensure your freedom of speech so you can spew this garbage that we keep seeing? Go join a "Black Lives Matter" March and hopefully you'll get a whiff of Tear Gas to make you re-consider your infantile attitude.
  7. That's good to hear, about Lottie. Yeah, she'd better get back to work before you go bankrupt!
  8. Get rid of that bloody Pony Express, then! Hows the missus doing, Donnie?
  9. MY GRANDSON JUST JOINED THE USMC IN SAN DIEGO! And I'm one very proud Grandpa! We'll see what he says after the one month Boot Camp at Camp Pendleton, poor bugger! At least we'll see him at Christmas for 10 days, hopefully.
  10. What the hell is WOOFSTOCK? Never heard of it. Sure you don't live in California, CJ?
  11. I sure hope so!!!!!!!!!
  12. Good for her! Don't let her do any gardening though! You'll know she's getting better when she insists on going to the Mall!
  13. Good thing it wasn't you, Donnie. You wouldn't have heard a peep! I'm kidding, I'm kidding, OK?
  14. So what was it, Donnie? Hip or knee? Or both? Or neither? Inquiring minds need to know!
  15. Oh, that's great, Donnie! Remind her that you still expect dinner to be on time as she's obviously a fast healer! Then DUCK!!!!!
