Conor, it’s supposed to hit the 80’s again this week. I really hope it doesn’t heat up too fast.

I really am enjoying the cooler temps this year more than any year before. Could it be that the heat bothers one more the older they get? Hummmmm:)

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!




Tattoo

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

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!









Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

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)

Reading RANDOM WALK DOWN WALL STREET, to get sense of stock market (& diversify). I am hopelessly ignorant of the world.

I assume your tastes are more eclectic — or fun!
