Happy 4th of July
Hope you all are having a good time, me, I am celebrating the 4th at Gettysburg,PA. 150 yr anniversary
Have not been there for 15 yeras, would like to take my wife there. Stayed at a real nice bed and breakfast. Ate they doing any re-inactments today?
We saw tons of re-enactors and took a guided bus tour of the battlefield, walked some of it as well. What a deal. Little big top was a bitch. As a ground pounder I could really appreciate what those tough bastards went thru, on both sides of the line.
The big round top and little round top sites were amazing. The southern general they could have just thrown rocks at them, and they would have been able to repel them. After climbing that hill, I could beleive it. Also walked the devils den area, and to imagine the hand to hand combat that took place there, also moves you.
It really brings it home.
July 3rd the parade was cancelled due to two fools carjacking and then crashing the car into a house, I was told by a store owner .
Seems a more appropriate course in keeping with the 150 yr celebration should have been an old fashioned lynching and hanging.
I am sure these guys should have been in jail already. However, our revolving door legal system allows these people out among us. The same mind set that wants to deny us our 2nd amendment rights, are the same people who choose not to punish criminals.
That must have been awesome, Lucky. I didn't realize it was the 150th. That would have been something I'd like to do.
I did go out to the lease this weekend and got a hog. I might post pics. I on the fence because they're kind of bloody.
Post them, I am sure it would not offend anyone here, just my opinion.
