If it was breakup time I could enjoy it. But...knowing there is lots of freezing still to come, I hate the thaw/freeze stuff!

Windows down...and you have to put your warm boots back in the closet. LOL!

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!









Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

It has settled down. Not for sure for how long, but it was pretty today. Kinda windy but not blow-the-roof-off windy. :)

How are you doing? Is your Dad a bit better?
