Look at this forecast and tell me why I turned on my irrigation system. I love it up here, but damnit, it's May. Gonna do a quick drain on Thursday, but the grass is begging for water.

Morning all.

Going to make a trip to the Man Mall this morning. They got a '92 Camaro in so hope I can find a couple of the small parts that I need to finish mine.

My Friday lunch with VFW veterans is getting so small.
Some are in VA homes and no longer make it.

Two that are soon to be called to Heaven:
Col. Norwood is at MD Anderson, his family wanted him to try again he wasnt wild about chemo for a third time. USAF-VN
Jimmy Martin was brought to hospice two days ago for an "evaluation", he wont leave. USN-Korea



Behold, I am making all things new. Revelation 21:5

My dad, in his golden days, used to say every time I saw him and asked "how are you doing?",
"Getting old is for the birds".
I have yet to figure out what that meant,
but my closest guess is getting old sucks.

Morning all

Almost all of these Vets are in their 80's.
Sometimes they share stories of their time in country, but mostly they compare todays military vs. theirs (reminiscing).
I've only heard a few gore stories...two that stick out:
  • satchel charge = nothing left but black hair on concertina wire by B52's at an air base.
  • chopper gunner hitting a hut with multiple rounds, hut explodes, bodies become airborn.
