crew respects to all the Veterans. I hope you have a good day today and a happy rest of your life.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

As someone that never served, I appreciate greatly those that have. I salute you all and say THANK YOU.

Here we call it Remembrance Day. salute

Death Came Knocking, http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageN...BLT9KjxaMHO7FY_dqR_2gnVotDkztMDO-sdv0duA

This is an article about an area and the high school I spent a year attending. From this area, 472 didn't come home from WW2. One of them was a Dam Buster pilot and another was part of the Great Escape.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Happy Veterans Day folks. ready

My biggest challenge today is to not eat too much free food. So many places, while many formerly gave discounts it's free meals now.

For me it's gonna be Sonny's BBQ pulled pork sandwich for lunch and probably a New York strip for dinner. readytoeat

Look for me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tic Toc...or anywhere you may frequent, besides SimHq, on the Global Scam Net. Aka, the internet.
I am not there, never have been or ever will be, but the fruitless search may be more gratifying then the "content" you might otherwise be exposed to.

I never could serve, but I'm thankful as heck for those who have. Hats off and respect.

Lest we forget...

In Flanders Fields
BY JOHN MCCRAE

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Same with me. When I was in college I was seriously considering a naval officer career and visited a recruiting office but as soon as I told them about my open heart surgery in 1981 I was told that I was ineligible for military service.

I've been 100% healthy since the surgery and thanks for asking! I had what is called an "atrial septal defect" which is essentially a heart murmur. In most cases, the small hole closes automatically during early childhood but in my case it did not so my parents had the surgery done when I was 9 years old.
