    We're doing okay here in Montana. 404 total cases, 7 deaths, currently about 275 people are recovered or recovering. There are some advantages to living in a large, sparsely populated state. My wife tells people we didn't have to change anything to be in isolation. :) OG
  2. Okay, there's something wrong here. Stans claims to be mentally fine. Donnie, have you noticed any other unusual posts from this possible imposter? OG

    All the cities along the Gulf Coast DID shut down their beaches, except for the morons in Panama City. My sister-in-law lives there. The idiots probably figured to cash in with all the other beaches closed. What they got was near-riots and had to call out the cops to handle the situation. THEN they closed the beach. But not before all those student imbeciles may have exposed themselves and the police officers to CV. A real win-win deal. Figure on it. People are going to be stupid and others will pay for it. We do have much going for us, though. Imagine how this
  4. Another lost sheep. Takes one to know one, y'know. I may have to start checking in more often. OG
  5. Bloody hell! Maine and Rommel on the same thread! I suspect evil warlord doings. OG
  6. At least two men from my home town went ashore in the second wave on Omaha Beach. On, WO3 Manfred Kliev, was killed later in Vietnam, the other, Larry Fonner, suffered from various ailments stemming from his combat across Europe. Larry died some years ago. WW2 vets are becoming rare. Honor those we have left. They and their Allied comrades truly saved the World. OG

    We get lots of hummingbirds here in Montana. I have at least 6 drinking from our feeder. They're cool little birds. But no heated bird bath here. OG
  8. We already got you a snazzy flight jacket, Donnie. All you have to do is put it on and settle back in your easy chair . . . and dream . . . Second Lieutenant Donster made a slight adjustment to one engine, then settled back to enjoy a quiet ride in his A-20 back to Port Moresby. The interphone was quiet, mainly because his gunner, Private Fick, had screamed some nonsense about an attack by armed purple elephants and bailed out shortly after takeoff. Fick suffered from various forms of mental instability, caused mainly by drinking too much of the hooch brewed up by the Aussie gro
  9. I think I parachuted into that same tree! Shooting down the attacking fighter after your crash is a classic. I did that several times in War Thunder. Haven't been able to end up in the right circumstances in this game. Yet. OG
  10. Fick, you forgot to say "Honest" or "Trust me." OG
  11. Hah! I forgot about Spaceball One. That would have served to let everyone know what DH had really been doing with his so-called life. OG
  12. It was just the kind of bar he was looking for. The sign above the door hung askew. Two drunks lay on the cracked and broken sidewalk. A cold wind pushed fitfully at Fick's thin jacket. Trash lay piled in odd corners. He stepped over one of the drunks and went inside. The room lay cloaked in shadow. Fick stood for a moment, savoring the rancid mix of waterfront mixed with stench of cheap beer and vomit. It reminded him of his favorite dive in Kiel, when he ran a couple girls back in the thirties. “Looking for someone?” The speaker slouched on a stool at the end of the b
  13. I was there in 67-68. Everybody listened to AFVN. I think a lot of guys had radios capable of picking up the BBC World Service and stations out of Japan, but I'm not sure. OG
  14. Then there's this one . . .
  15. This was one of our theme songs in Vietnam. The video is pretty good. Accurate portrayal of a combat assault. Plus, the helicopters have the doors off. Only Hueys carrying generals and other staff morons had the doors on.
