Thanks for yet another great Dose.
Then I'm doubly glad I found and posted that photo today. I'm proud our current Commander-in-Chief signed that bill to create the Medal of Honor flag, and that the flags are only presented at special ceremonies. Turning the USS Constitution is a very special ceremony, indeed.
Sigh. Time is a cruel master. I'm glad your FIL's medals have been passed down in the family with the honor they, and he, deserves.
Well...those who were born in 1946 (like George and Laura) don't want him. ;-)
Snicker...but James IS an excellent driver. Aren't all dogs excellent drivers? ;-)
Always my pleasure. :)
No, it was myself, Victor Davis Hanson, John Keegan, and three other historians, plus Bush, Rove, and Tony Snow. It was an off the record meeting where we had some general issues for discussion sent to us before hand. Each of us got to speak our piece, that's for sure.
I was thinking more like age five or six ...
LS - You dog....I'm SO happy for you. You worked hard to get to this point, my man; and I'm so happy for you!!! You are very handsome, too!
God Bless you both!
Well, as I say...off to the gazebo!
P.S. Too bad my Vikings AND Chargers lost today. Bummer.
Well, that's OK. Sharing the photo with us is enough. It's a wonderful photo.
Miss Marple, THIS is a GREAT idea!
Thank you for having the picture posted! What a wonderful momento for you!
Thank you for your kind words.
Off to dinner!
Back when Billy-Jeff really was five or six ('51 or '52), he was probably already so self-absorbed that he threw tantrums if other kids didn't make him the leader of their games. Even back then, he always had to be the chief games player.
My fault for phrasing my prior reply to you so defensively. I didn't think you were trying to imply such a thing, and I agree with you wholeheartedly about the revisionist history the Clintonistas are trying to sell. And, again, thanks for the great pictures.
I'd love to see his photos. You know how I am about dogs.
No problem. Here in the virtual world, we communicate only in one dimension and are denied all the other clues to intention we pick up from facial expressions, body language, tone of voice, and so on. It's a wonder any communicating happens at all on forums like these. :)
Just think - they were probably doing all they could do to keep from busting out laughing at Woodward's ability to "read minds".
2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise,
and I am saved from my enemies.
