CUPID

Late nestled on yon Venus' tender breast,
Young Cupid lay in torpid slumber bound.
Then, waking from that languid seat of rest,
He sighed, out-peering from his blind around.
Straight arrow fast against taut bowstring press’d.

And gallant swain he did at length espy:
Gave flight apace to fell dart quick and true,
That mounted through the clam'rous air on high,
That callow, rustic heart smote nigh full through.
And there engendered ardor yet to vie,

The heart of Rosaleen to win in love;
Who hath his suit ere now full high disdained.
Yet Venus, gazing down from throne above,
The gallant swain with speech of Love ordained,
Whence won the swain the hand of that sweet dove.

© Thomas J. Mitchell, 2008 - 2013

Good evening, Connie, and thank you for the red, white, and blue Tribute to Our Troops.

Another good day? Two in a row? Hope so, and a nice, safe commute. *HUGS*

I am off, with a hair cut appointment on the way home.

AERIAL REFUELING

Valentine's Day for aerial refueling? Someone's been watching the opening scene of Dr. Strangelove a few too many times.

A hero indeed! Up there with our greatest heroes as far as I'm concerned! Took care of his men under extremely perilous conditions - everything an NCO should be!

Must retire – the 0445 Reveille approaches relentlessly.

The Bugler, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!



All Gave Some – Some Gave All!!!

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!
