…”But oh they’ll ALL be Talkin’ “…

THANK GOD IT WASN’T ANY WORSE THAN IT WAS!…

This mornin’ our Nation suffered from the actions of yet another CRAZY! At approximately 7:00am ET/6:00am CT a Stranger, I’ll refer to him as Stranger #1, on a street in Alexandria, Virginia asks another Stranger, I’ll refer to him as Stranger #2, about some men out on a Baseball Field in a local park, “are those Democrats or Republicans”?  Stranger #2 responds “Republicans”. Just a few moments later GUNSHOTS begin to ring out! A US Congressman lays on the ground WOUNDED! Luckily it wasn’t Life Threatening we later found out. And few others as well, including Protection Detail members. Also, Stranger #1, the shooter, was shot & taken down. After hearing the reports on the News, about all that had transpired, by the DC Police & Alexandria, Virginia Poilce, & as well as others, I predicted (@ approximately 11:00am ET/10:00amCT) “I just wonder if the “Shooter” will ever make it to the inside of a Court? Hum-m-m-m…”. I less than an one (1) I then heard the “Shooter had passed away”. I then posted a second comment (@ approximately 11:45am ET/10:45amCT) “I hate to say “I told you so, but, I TOLD YOU SO”!…“. Now, let the RUMORS Begin! ALL of the Talkin’ Heads are droolin’, as they rush for their microphones & cameras, to be the 1st to spew what little is STILL known about exactly happened & why. Hell, most of them will be Talkin’ just to hear themselves Talk! But oh they’ll ALL be Talkin’! You know it’s goin’ to happen…”Hold’em Hook”…..BG>

…”Future Leader of the this country?”…

As I sit here this mornin’ sippin’ my “Mornin’ Joe” and catchin’ up on the News from yesterday & over night I have seen & heard several snippets of a speech that a United States Senator, a DemocRAT, delivered. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, from the Great/Sorry Liberal State of New York, at a Personal Democracy Forum at New York University. This told me all I needed to know about Her, New York University, the Students in attendance, their acceptance & approval as reflected by their response/applause to her choice of words. I wonder how PROUD her Parents were of her at that moment in time? Total Lack of CLASS by all!

So is this where the DemocRATic Party is headed? Hum-m-m-m…DemocRATic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s command of “The F Bomb”. Impressive or Embarrassing? Mistake?-NO! Intended?-Oh YES! Strictly for EFFECT. Wasn’t she cute? Just “Playin’ to her audience. It was done too many times to be a “Slip Of The Tongue”. So, this DemocRAT has visions of being the Future Leader of the this country? So goes the The DemocRATic, Socialist, Communist Party Slide we’re on…”Hold’em Hook”!….BG>

…”Better Days Ahead”…

As I sit here, this evenin’, enjoyin’ the Music of the “Make America Great Again” Welcome Celebration I am filled with emotion. The songs all seem to have Patriotic Themes of Our Military & Law Enforcement. So far I haven’t heard a single Republican nor Democrat Song! Imagine that. For the life of me, I am puzzled by the decisions of those who were invited to attend, these activities, yet have chosen not to be a part of this. To me that tells me there are a lot of people who have somethin’ to either be ashamed of, fear, hide from us, or are openly showin’ their personal intent NOT to work with the 45th President of These United States Of America. Right now our Country is so much more Racially Divided than we were 8 years ago. I am deeply sickened by this. And the actions of those who chose not to be a part of these activities reflect the actions that they intend to broaden that divide at every opportunity they get. As the Fireworks bring this evenin’s activities to an end I look forward to tomorrow as a New Day, A New Beginnin’, and hopefully Better Days Ahead of us all. God  Bless America! With that I’ll close for the evenin’…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”a date which will live in infamy”…

December 7, 1941

7:55 a.m. Pacific Time – Japanese War Planes Attack Pearl Harbor!!!!!

This is a day in our History that I hope we will NEVER ALLOW to be forgotten nor removed from OUR History Books by the Politically Correct (PC) Idiots we keep sending to Washington, DC. You know the type, those that feel we should forgive & forget everything that might offend others. I (Personally) DO NOT CARE WHO IT MIGHT OFFEND. {{{{{ WE WERE ATTACKED }}}}}! Our people were KILLED & Injured! WAR was thrust upon us. We should continue to teach our children, their children, & their children about this time in and about our history.
 

If you are fortunate enough to see one of these Veterans that survived WWII please walk up to them, shake their hand, & thank them for their Service. They have been known as “The Greatest Generation”. They stepped up and did what HAD to be done to defeat the “Axis Countries” to WIN WWII and bring the World back to Peace & a Safe Place to Live (for the most part) once again. Since then Our “Cowardly Career Politicians” have not WON any Military Actions they have taken us into. WAR is not easy to enter. But when we do we should go in it to WIN it. What EVER it takes. We are currently in a WAR on TERRORISM. Step up “COWARDS”! WIN this WAR!

My Military Career Part #13b…”Do I regret it? Not a damn bit!”…

Needless to say a couple of hours had passed, many more friends had arrived & joined in the celebration. Oh & the dancin’, singin’, huggin’, & rubbin’ of bodies on the slow songs. Yes, we were young & just flat out enjoyin’ ourselves. It was time to refill our Five (5) Liter Mugs. My MBF, along with a few others, took our mugs to the bar. Other MBF’s, females, kept me occupied. I saw my MBF’s comin’ back with our Mugs. My throat was truly parched. There was just one problem. Mine was EMPTY! I asked “What The Hell”?, or somethin’ to that affect. Well everyone was gatherin’ close around & My MBF said he was goin to “Propose a Toast”! I interrupted him sayin’ “Hey! There’s nothin’ in MY Mug” to Thoast with! Everyone got quiet & then he said “Well here, have a drink out of this Mug”! Then he said HAPPY BIRTHDAY! He then sat a NEW Beir/Beer Mug/Stein up on the table. It was a 7.5 Liter German Beir/Beer Mug/Stein, full of Schloss Brau! After that I remember bits & pieces of the night, & they were all GREAT! I remember someone drove my car, with the two of us back to his house, on base in the Family Housing area. I still had a little Beir/Beer in my Mug/Stein, staggered across the street, without breakin’ it, & finished it before goin’ in his family’s apartment. I do know I passed out at some point. My MBF had a bed room down in the basement of the buildin’. He, who was damn near as drunk as I was, & his girl friend tried to carry me down the steps for us to bed down & sleep off the rest of the night, or what was left of it. I remember my elbow (now I don’t remember if it was my left or right) was killin’ me. I found out some time later that my MBF & his girl friend dropped me & bounced me down the few steps there. My MBF was in his bed passed out. I was on the floor on a mattress & that elbow was throbbin’! I’ll just say I passed back out again & woke several hours later, it was after sun up, I don’t remember what time it was, but my elbow was {{{ SWOLLEN ! }}}, hurttin’ somethin’ awful, & I couldn’t bend it. All I can say is “that was one hell of a night”. Do I regret it? Not a damn bit! It’s funny how we remember things, from so long ago, as if they happened just recently…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

My Military Career Part #13a…”Do I regret it? Not a damn bit!”…

Sittin’ in down in The Cave this, Sunday, afternoon I was watchin’ somethin’ on TV. As I sat there lookin’ somethin’, in my peripheral vision to my left side, caught my eye! I immediately whipped my head to the right side of the TV. It was my two (2) Bier/Beer Mugs that had caught my attention. My mind was immediately transported to Saturday night, December 16, 1972, Ramstein AFB, The Roman Inn , & many of my friends (Military & Military Brats) & my 21st Birthday. I got off of work @ 4:00 p.m. that day & I was now on a three (3) day break & the Kindsbach Cave was behind me. Little to my did I know I was goin’ to be NEEDIN’ all three (3) of’em. Also, I was off from my part time job @ The Roman Inn. That is where I served as the Human {{{ “PA System” }}}, and also sold & served Pizza (Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, or a Combo), German, Schloss Brau, Bier/Beer (bottled or draft), & Coke. Drinks were sold by the glass, the bottle, or Pitcher. That was the extent of the Menu. After gettin’ off work I went to my apartment to shower, change cloths, & get my Bier/Beer Mug. I was goin’ to celebrate the night, with my five (5) Liter Bier/Beer Mug! A Military Brat Friend (MBF) of mine had one just like it & WE were goin’ to be DRINKIN’ out of’em on this Special Night! I got there just before 6:00 P.M. There was a band already playing, as happened there on many Saturday nights. My MBF immediately took both of our Five (5) Liter Mugs & had’em filled. The celebration had begun! We were feastin’ on cheap greasy Pizza & washin’ it down with good German Draft Bier/Beer. If you’ve never had REAL German Draft Bier, well, let me tell ya, it’s like “Mother’s Milk”!….continued

…”call out their name”…

Just Chillin'

{{{{{ DREAMS ! }}}}}…We all have ’em. They come to us in our sleep as Funny, Fantasy, Horror, a look into our future, & times from our past. Things we have done, places we’ve been, people from our lives we have lost, & people we wish we had NEVER met. Some are so scrambled up they include people & places from our past that are intertwined with our present. Some are so realistic we wake up, lookin’ around, & are tryin’ to figure out where we are. Was it Real or Not? Yeah, we’ve ALL been there. Most of us, as children, dreamed of bein’ different things. When I was a child, Boys dreamed of being a Dad, Cowboy, Doctor (and played @ it every chance we got), Fireman, Policeman, Baseball/Football/Basketball Player, etc. Girls (I think) dreamed of bein’ a Mother, Nurse, Teacher, Singer, Actress, etc. Over the decades, of your life, how many times have YOU, due to a dream of yours or someone else in your house, looked under the bed, or been too scared to! How many times have you gotten up to look in a closet, with a flash light in one hand & maybe a Pistol in the other hand. How many times have you had someone too scared to sleep alone crawl in bed with you (that you didn’t take advantage of)? Have you ever had to go outside to find a limb movin’ in the nights breeze & scrubbin’ against the house? Only to go back to the door to go in & you see wet footprints in front of the door you came out of? Then realized someone, or the Dog/Cat, inside wet the floor you walked on (by a spill or bodily function)? Have you Won the Lottery in a dream? Most say they dream in “Black & White” while others swear they dream in Color. It’s a toss up. How about YOU? Have you had that dream where you’re fallin’ off a cliff, on a plane that is about to crash, a boat that is about to sink, etc. & wake up just before that final instant & you’re all sweaty! Or you were runnin’ from someone or a wild animal? Have you gone to bed dressed & woke up naked & don’t know WHY (were their any pictures)? Have you had that dream where you’re in front of a crowd speakin’ & they’re all naked (if only)? Who has dreamed of THAT OTHER person?, & hope you didn’t call out their name in your sleep? Hum-m-m…Y’all sleep well tonight...”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
