REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Spc. Brandon M. Kirton, USA, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, KIA Afghanistan 18MAY2011



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Aloha Ladies!

Bright and sunny today....and one other little bit of cheer. Gas prices went down to $3.999 ( which of course means $4 but hey). A week ago they were at $4.60 for regular and the premium approaching $5.

You know I've only seen a woodpecker once in my life. He was a noisy fellow! LOL How's Phred doing? Phred is doing just fine so far. I worry about when the town fills up with people and him chasing cars. Tasha did that also. We have 2 different types of woodpeckers that I have seen up here so far. Most locals do not like them, I do they eat the bugs.
