  1. R.I.P., Mary. Ya' know, the older I get the more my thoughts of yesteryear become shattered. Mary Tyler Moore always seemed to be that gal next door with the cute smile and winsome ways. Now we find out that she was an alcoholic and did drugs. Show biz can sure screw with your life.
  2. I just took a look at the website, www.change.org for laughs. I now wish that I hadn't. What a bunch of vile characters there are on it, and how revealing that many of them carry Middle Eastern names. Am I paranoid, or is there a movement in the U.S. that caters to Arabs and their hate for the U.S? If some of these weirdos ever get to be heard then its bye-bye for the good ol' USA!
  3. Just trying to read them gives me a bloody headache! Waste of good space, if you ask me.
  4. Happy New Year to all you old buggers, and you young ones, too! Let's just pray that 2017 is a far better year than 2016, eh? But don't hold your breath!
  5. I really don't know why I waste my time replying to Rotatiga, when I know he's just a product of the American Socialist School System, but it just galls me to read his twaddle and not say anything in reply. Firstly, RT, ALL lives matter, not just Black Lives, so why don't you take a step back from the brainwashing that George Soros et al is dumping on you and think for yourself for once? Secondly, these same Communistic Rantings are only doing one thing, and that is, dividing this country into people of hate and anger, which is precisely what they want, so with your childish statements you're only feeding these morons, and show that for all your supposed education you feed from the same trough as all the other Communist/Socialist lackeys of that ilk. Again, sit down and think seriously about these statements you make, and ask yourself if you're just parroting the Party Line or are you convinced of your stand? Be serious, you know Obama is not the Countrys greatest President. Again, look seriously at his record, and ask yourself if that is your own analysis or that of CNN or PBS. Can you really say that Obama beats out Washington or Bush Senior? Lastly, if there is no reply to any of this post, then I know I'm talking to a serious closed mind and won't waste my time in future. Right?
  6. And a Hero he was.............RIP John Glenn. Now we don't even bother to read or watch stories about Space Flight, and the mighty men and women that travel there, it's become so commonplace. But without men like John Glenn to lead the way where would we be? God bless you, Commander Glenn.
  7. 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.
  8. AMEN!
  9. 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"
  10. Love restorations like that! Thanks, Donnie.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. That's good to hear, about Lottie. Yeah, she'd better get back to work before you go bankrupt!
  14. Get rid of that bloody Pony Express, then! Hows the missus doing, Donnie?
  15. 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.
