Either you're being interrogated, or you're meeting the parents, or both?

My mother was actually the interrogator when I brought guys home. My father would just curse and walk out of the room.

Not the opening but each England game will be. Last time we were allowed to make time up on other days at work and go early so we did not miss the kick off.

Our then Finance Director is a football fanatic and he did not want to be there late so we were encouraged to do that.

We even have an English flag up in our factory drapped over the stores

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Thank you, Dolly, for this memoriam.

The quotations are wonderful - the humorous as well as the serious - and the pictures are great. He was a darned handsome man.

I count him as one of the five most important mentors of my life. I proudly served my last years in the Air Force with Reagan as my Commander-in-Chief, and I salute him still.

I had been ready to mow the lawn today, but the weatherman had other ideas. Maybe tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath for that.

That's the kind of father I'm likely to be. That is why I have been taking Hannity's tack with my 9yo daughter, "no dating until you are 30"

So far, she hasn't made any objections... lol

By the way, she is a fan of Reagan, of course, he's about the only President she's heard about in such glowing terms.

"But as to the dating--wait until she's 13. . . ;-)"

Brainwashing is the perfect solution. Was talking to a guy at work, he was worried about his 11 yr old, she and her friends were "going on dates" as a group. My daughter was about the same age at that time, during his concern I handed the phone to my little one and said "hey ___, how old will you be when you date", she looked at me curiously and said into the phone "at least 16, maybe 17".

It's all about brainwashing.

Hi Dolly

Hope you're having a great time tonight. Just had to write and say what a great topic! Love the gipper. Didn't realize it's been two years since the death of our greatest recent President.

Also wanted to send prayers and well wishes for our Marine Lady X. Please keep us posted. Once a Marine, always one who sacrificed for our country and the freedom we have. We can never truly express our thanks.

Hahahaha, she's 13 now. There will be no dating yet. Dating should be conducted when one considers who could be a possible marriage partner. She's way too young.

I cannot understand how we let our kids date. Perhaps I've also been brainwashed but dating is looking for a marriage partner. Before that, shouldn't happen.

Oh, I know ... lots of stuff changes

That's why I've started early on her.

It's also pretty easy for me in this respect. She doesn't hear much in the way of liberal drivel being around me, we don't have the propaganda of TV stations or newspapers impinging on her, and discussions with me about her friends' liberal parents concepts have her understanding there is a difference between logical thinking and "feeling". Who knows how long all this will last, but so far it's working out OK.

yes.. I went to the funeral & joined up with the other DC freepers.. MANY tears for sure. WE were right in front of white house when The caisson & Nancy Reagan joined up for the "journey" to the white house. I was shooting pix like crazy thru tears. will see if I can find the pix (on one of the NUMEROUS hard drive w/pix) to post a few.
