Let me guess....her name is Ann, and she seems to have gone over to the dark side.

Her name is Ann, and she has, indeed, gone over to the dark side.

Good morning, Fiji Hill
Thanks for the tunes.
LOL on The Eagles one. Liked how the poster put "Not those Eagles".
I was wondering same thing when I saw the name.
I see a couple of the groups were formed from DC.

Good morning, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Thanks very much for the tribute to my Brothers-in-Arms who answered the Nation's call in that war - now so long ago and far away.

Thank you to the men and women who stood up for, fought for, bled for, and in over 50,000 cases died for the cause of Freedom and self-determination for small nations. They served in a just and honorable cause, against a system of tyranny among the most evil the world has ever seen, and in the face of general opprobrium on the part of their contemporaries.



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)
