I don't know, but with the battles of Coral Sea and Midway, and all of the fighting around Iron Bottom Sound that year, the workers were probably pulled off the Kentucky to repair battle damaged ships and for higher priority construction.
Happy Lord's Day!!!!!!
Peace, like a river, flows throught my heart today as I think of all Jesus has done for me and for everyone here.
I thank God for all He has done for us and I also thank Him for another beautiful day!
All right, this might not be an appropriate subject for a Sunday morning or afternoon.
I have lot's to say about my days fighting for the Rebublican cause here in a place were I'm vastly out numbered. But I find my strength and my courage in my faith and trust in God.
Note: I'm "reporting" from behind enemy lines, LOL!
Had an interesting encounter with two Democratic coworkers. Interesting and humorous!
It seems they believe all that Terry McAwful and Jean Kerry and thier ilk has said about President Bush! They really are out to lunch! HEH! HEH!
Well, I had some salvos to throw their way. One of them said she had a donkey pin that was red white and blue. (how patriotic!)
I told her that by November 3 that pin will be sooooo blue! LOL!
Let the games begin!
I wonder how friendly our discussions will be later on this year as the election progresses?
We shall see!
Last Sunday afternoon we had some young people campaigning for Ben Cardin, a local Democratic candidate running for US Congress
I wonder were the Republicans are?
But then this IS Maryland! SHEESH!
But I heard some good news for the GOP here
A fellow Conservative told me that in the past the National RNC had always been told not to bother with Maryland as it was solidly Democratic and any RNC campaigning was useless.
But since we now have a Republican Governor for the firs time in over thirty years. There is hope for Maryland Republican Candidates. AND Gov. Ehrlich is now saying please send money to fund the Maryland GOP party. WTG BOB!
Oh, I need to tell you this, when I was watching the President's speech to the Republican Governors. I saw Gov. Ehrlich standing on the stage with the likes of Gov. Schwartzenegger (sp?) Gov. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush as well as President Bush. For the first time I was proud of my state. I also had a feeling of pride in being from Maryland and seeing my state being counted among the Republicans and my Governor being greeted by the President what a time to be an American! I'll tell y'all something I've never told y'all before, Another reason why I firmly support President Bush is he brought back to me something that was missing for a very long time.
Pride in being an American! He brough back the dignaty and the strength of America and the American people, I guess that is why the left hates him so much! But I love him for what he has given back to me.
I am no longer ashamed to say I'm an American.
Now I hope this season of lent will have more meaning for me and brings me closer to God and to the realization of what Christ has done for me.
May God bless all who post and lurk on FreeRebublic.
May God bless and protect Jim Robinson,President Bush and Our Troops and God Bless America.
Till I can post again about the goings on in Baltimore and in Anne Arundle County(at least where I'm at)
I'm your roving Republican hobbit behind enemy lines and fighting the good fight!
Have a God Blessed Day!
Sounds like the most reasonable explanation.
