feel free to give me a loud rap at the door, or blast me with a loud PING when you have something the GOE list should know about, ok?
Will be there for part of the festivities this week.
GOE PING! Sorry so slow on the draw.
1 second! Thanks to you, too!
Thanks for the PING, Spirit.
sounds wonderful.. cant wait to see the AAR & of course the PIX!
go get em DC FReepers & all others ..
bet this doesn’t make the national news
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave,
From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave;
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
In the fall of 1779, two marauding Tories plundered the Lincoln County home of George Wilfong, a Whig, and brazenly using the man's clothes line to lead off his horses. Wilfong and some others pursued the thieves and regained his horses, but the thieves escaped and headed south toward the British Lines. Before reaching safety, they were apprehended by Ben Cleveland's scouts and brought to the Wilkes County courthouse. Here, Cleveland summarily administered his justice, using Wilfong's clothes line to hang the loyalist from the limbs of the Tory Oak.
The enraged British forces sent a Captain Riddle and two men, named Reeves and Goss, to capture Cleveland. They nearly accomplished this aim, but instead found themselves taken prisoner, shortly after which they too were dangling from the beckoning branches of the Tory Oak.
May this meeting of real American patriots somehow effect a few on the Hill that might still have a bit of grey matter to understand the underlining important reasons we must stay in Iraq until it can function as a full democratic oriented state, with the will to join in a permanent agreement to combat radical Islam.
AMEN! Father God, open the eyes and ears of all present to hear and see TRUTH! Let it shine forth so brightly that none can deny it. May Your Name be honored and glorified in the events of this week and its outcomes. In Jesus Name, AMEN!
I second your prayer.
