Howdy (that is hello in cowboy talk)

Been in a whirlwind not overly due to recent
events here but this is a busy week: family, friends are converging on our farm for BBQ, the lookie lookie at the Rockky Mountains and such.

So after I drive up Fort Carson to buy a BBQ
and after I assemble it I'll try and post later.

To bad your roosters are not mature but boys make tough birds anyway, Bantams? they be small and pretty" perhaps you will get gay birds?

Will look for the PM as well later.

Off for my $6 buck army haircut, etc.

Joe

PS

saw a post where some guy's Mrs. is deployed to the "sandbox", like "down range?" Iraq

Wish them both the best...

Waaaaay off topic, but I saw the bit about Bantam Roosters & just had to post.

I'm getting really weirded out - I always do during the few weeks leading up to July 12, which is when my beloved partner Dana died from AIDS-related cancer in 2001. Anniversaries are hell.

But then seeing this post about Bantams made me smile. Dana stood only 5'6" but he was a body builder, weighed 185 at his peak. And despite being a T-minus-minus Bear (that's the "Tallness" rating in the Bear Code, translated as "A Bear of Very Short Stature"), he had one of those incredibly forceful/expansive personalities that literally filled up any room he was in, even if it was a meeting of the College's Board of Trustees.

In addition to his presence, he had a very broad chest and was very long in the abdomen in relation to his height, which left him with short legs; taken together, all of this made him strut like - you guessed it - a Bantam Rooster ! \:\)

In fact, that was one of my nicknames for him. He liked it. \:D

Kev - Oh, MAN, that is a BAD joke ! ROFL !

Jasper - I have a personal definition of a Higher Power that works pretty well for me, which *certainly* includes lighting candles for family, friends, etc. I would very much appreciate your candle and I know Dana would, too. Thanks.

("")Bearhugs("") to you both (but only if you want them),

Howdy all,

Really enjoyed the words from each of you.

My "stress" day for loss is August 17th. It was
the week before that I lost my best amigo in Vietnam we were nearby but I never got to him. It was bad for the next week as well, I am in some Nam book and will PM anyone who cares.

That Elton John song "Your Song" drives me in a
few seconds to a sobbing fellow. After all these years, it was 1969, the pain did wain each year and decade. That is why I am so hyper of the Iraq War.

So, not off-topic but give me a few seconds. ;\)

Glad I came back, losey day, hot, sold out of the gas grill I wanted, the haircut (all Korean female barbers at Fort Carson) used a dull set of shears, so the sweat burned all the way home. Get home, the sheep dog (actually a Kuvasz) was left inside and dumped all over.

I learn more about folks here by the small things,
good to Mister J has a hobby, well his friend does, "folks like us need outlets". To many of this board are hurting sometimes, often because they feel emotions others have repressed.

Be around, be up and be down, avoid Korean barbers
not worth the $6...

Joe

PS

I love Koreans, it is he US Army haircut facility,
where "real men" take what is given and drive on!
Like in front of twenty uniformed soldiers I was gonna say "ouch, that hurts"

The 31st was the first day of the 1968 Tet Offensive, Vietnamese New Years Day.

America lost thousands of men in the period,
it was if the Iraq war lasted a week, that many lost
in a few days.

I know that your grandfather is proud to have you all support him. It was a long time ago but just yesterday to us old soldiers,

God Bless and Do take it easy, Amigo!
