Not blathering Ed. Am glad to know what you be dealing with. Just reread Stephen Ambose's "Band of Brothers" and it reinforced in me just how hard it is to get through this life. Wish we all had friends like they did. I still miss them. Hope we can at least be a place you can say ouch...
Never heard that before. Having a considerable Irish heritage I understand that the Powers That Be have been scum-sucking piles of fecal matter long before the Atlantic slave trade existed, and remained that way after the Brits made it illegal. After all they still had the Irish and Scots.
Went to Henry's last night and we actually played. Discovered trying to sing through my mask was extra exhausting.
Happy birthday Dom. I hope there are many more for you and your friends,
Haven't seen any real damage from the blow the other day and WFs saying hot and increasingly...
Thanks for the good thoughts. Mary had a really good life but deserved much more time.
Had a cold front blow in on a Southwind yesterday evening and after the sun dropped Northwind took it over big time. Got steady 25mph winds going with gust in excess of 50. Will be interesting...
Hot and miserably muggy here.
Went out to my oldest sister's last night and saw her, with hubby, their son and his family and my other sister. Our first visit since Covid-19 and was filled with less than good news.
Our oldest brother's widow Mary has gone into hospice care. She...
The UPS guy brought my new thermostat this after. Wish it could of been a swap without having to rewire, but at least the wall anchors were in the same place. There were only 5 wires to hook up though the harness coming out the wall had three wires that had been left unused.
At least the...
We are going to be in low to mid 90s till sometime next week and not expecting to get below 70 at night. It is 1100 hrs local and is already a muggy 88.
Have the A/C on and think Maddie has adjourned to our bed.
Hope Ma smiles on us all.
Went to Henry's last night for a pizza/bonfire gathering of the band. Had a great time. Kevin brought a new D'Angelico acoustic that was a stupid deal of the day from MF. A nice guitar.
Was gone for 5 hours, and you would of thought I had been gone days the way Maddie acted when...
And had to listen again. Recommended reading; Tim Obrien's 'The things they Carried'.
We be special. Not for what the pinheads think but because somewhere the hopes of everyone else got mixed up with ours and our sons and daughters have sanctified that concept too many times to ignore.
God I cannot hear that without swelling with pride at what I believe we stand for. Hard to think even now that what we stand for could be stated so succinctly. Is a tune that makes the humping seem a little thing.
Watched the last episode of Ken Burn's 'Vietnam' yesterday and they started the end with 'A Bridge over Troubled Water'. Was an album of its' time for certain, and one I listened to again and again.
Hey Tom, just watched DW News on PBS. Wish we had leadership here that compared...
Just posted this on another site.
I passed that flag to the next of kin 23 times. Did a lot of squirelly things in the service but I remember every time the NCOIC passed that flag to me. Had watched tears run down the faces of the men so carefully folding that flag (yes we spent hours...
Still in flashflood warning till tomorrow am though so far we seem to be okay in my local.
Heard some booming bout midnight but no limbs down in my yard.
Christopher you be way more ambitious tone chasing than I have ever been.
Hope Ma smiles on us all.
