I cannot stress enough how wonderful it was to see TC again. I am not one to brag, BUT . . . I have to say that I was able to give TC a TC hug.

If you have never had a TC hug; imagine being young and getting that hug from your father or grandfather where you just know you are truly loved and safe & protected and nothing in the world can harm you - that is a TC hug.

I truly love that man, and was so thrilled to be able to give him a TC hug and let him know he was truly loved.

Happy 230th Birthday

United States Marine Corps

On November 10th, 1775, the Second Continental Congress resolved to raise two battalions of Continental Marines marking the birth of our United States Marine Corps. As Major General Lejeune’s message reminds us, the ensuing generations of Marines would come to signify all that is highest in warfighting excellence and military virtue. Each November as Marines the world over celebrate the birth of our Corps, we pay tribute to that long line of “Soldiers of the Sea” and the illustrious legacy they have handed down to us.

Establishment of the Marine Corps, 10 November 1775

This resolution of the Continental Congress marked the establishment of what is now the United States Marine Corps.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or inlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required: that they be inlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Source: Journal of the Continental Congress, 10 November 1775, in William Bell Clark, editor, Naval Documents of the American Revolution, Vol. 2, p. 972 (Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1966).

Today was Keira's first day home from the hostpital. She'll be ,in one degree or another, in semi-isolation until March, when she should be completely healed.

Meanwhile she's home, playing with her own toys (after they are disinfected on a daily basis) and even smiling on occasion, as in the image below.

Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers.

if that doesn't work as an image. The link is:

Miss V thinks it's much to quite around this place. She thinks TC could use some entertaining. Just coincidently, she's just gotten a new "entertainer" that she's more than happy to demonstrate for TC, and everyone else.

Let's Party!

She was practicing for today, when her other Grandpa and Grandma arrived in town for her Christening, which is this Sunday, and for Thanksgiving.

For all of you that are lucky enough to still have your father with you, go visit, give him a TC hug and let him know you love and appreciate him.

For those of us that have lost our fathers, take comfort knowing they are in Heaven watching over us and enjoying their favorite Earthly passions guilt free (In my case, my Dad is eating beer flavored ice cream while playing dominoes with my brother, grandmother, great grandmother & his favorite cousin).

TC - Know we are all praying for you, Faith and Joel. I love you!

my Dad is eating beer flavored ice cream while playing dominoes with my brother, grandmother, great grandmother & his favorite cousin

Mine's in his racing silks, behind SeaGo Sue. Or maybe he's trapping muskrats or beaver, hunting ducks or pheasants, or perhaps just bleaching a chicken for the up coming Pearly Gates Chicken Show. Then he'll have a couple of beers.

Then again, he might be taking the cull chickens or pigeons to the old couple down the street who don't have enough to eat.

Dad is gone, but Mom is not only still with us, she's visiting me, for her great granddaughter's Christening, and is in the next room as I type this.

I was just informed by email that ElRoy has passed away. Please tell me that this is incorrect. I am sure the source would not lie to me, but do not know how close they are to the situation.

He was a true gentleman and joy to be around.
One of those rare people for whom life did not present problems, merely challenges.

I'll miss him.

Wow, that is how fast time flies. It was a few months after that when he mentioned coming to LA to visit his daughter.We were going to try to meet for dinner or a drink, but he wasn't able to on that visit. I guess it was my loss. I wish I had known he was so close while going through this treatment....I would have visited him. But, I did not even see this thread until last week. Well, I am sure I saw it, but didn't put "Texas Cowboy" together with "COB1" so it didn't register.

I showed his photo to my man last night & he said the same thing I did when I first saw El Roy.

HE LOOKS LIKE JAMES COBURN!!!

Tomorrow we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor. I can just imagine the posts you would write. Tell Dix and the Chief hi for me ok? And anyone else you run into that I know.

Christmas is almost upon us. The air has developed that crispiness that makes folks know it's winter. Greg was injured in Iraq (humve hit a mine). Everyone in the humve was treated and have been released from the hospital and are recovering. They are very short timers expecting to arrive back stateside on the 6th of Jan. He could have come home earlier but didn't want to leave his group behind. If he arrives nearby we'll make the trip to welcome him home.

(tears rolling down)

I love You for being a best friend.

When the last few months have been tough you are like a Angel from Heaven and although no one else see's or hear's you I do.

Pullin' up by the Boot straps. I want to go home too but you whisper in my ear that the clay jar is still on that whirrly jig (not ready)

Help me be better and less selfish St. Cobb.

Many won't speak of you and get ticked because I won't shut my pie hole.

Thank You for being a Guardian to so many of us.

I was listening (live as you know) to Nevada Slim and Cimmeron Sue the the day and I started crying, because I and many of us miss you and love you.

You are in our hearts and souls.
