Important Date!

In case some of you out there are not aware, one of THE great dates in history is coming up for celebration here very shortly.

I speak, of course, of the United Stated Marine Corps BIRTHDAY! 10 November, 1775 – Tun Tavern.

This is a time of serious revelry, the consumption of much 2-carbon-chain liquids, the wearing of uniforms (if they still fit) and overall a day for feeling superior to all other human beings (sorry! can’t be helped!)

In that spirit, I post this link (I hope it comes through) It is of a rock group called Madison Rising. They have (elsewhere) a great rendition of the national anthem, too.

      In mine, too, dear Dev…Can I worry yet?…There is mail for you and the Teufel Hunden – those to whom you’ve kindly introduced me – in the accustomed place. I really like Madison Rising!

      Happy Upcoming 240th, dear OIC! S/F Always!

    More stuff.

    Yes we were. Like a rock. And if we’re a bit more bowed, slowed in our age, less physically capable, we’re STILL “like a rock” in our heads and hearts.
