my fathers war...
I volunteered to go but got pneumonia at Fort
Polk and was told I had a heart murmur and sent
Oldest city in US or something ?
Some guy of the name Janius started a commuter flight from Saint Petersburg to Tampa with a Air Boat....
oh and SOCOM is here also... See allot of neat stuff flying around :))
I remember when I was little I would sneak in the hall way and sit mid level on the stairs and watch the news. My mom wouldn't let us watch it so we had to sneak...
Some thing my Uncle told me once. He never has had any issue for anyone who didn't go, refused to go or even those who went to Canada. But the ones who scream, stomped their feet, spit, threw chicken blood and shit. They are the ones he wanted to stomp bloody, even did it once or twice.. lol
You know all those College students who protested so damn much, yet now that they ARE the establishment, they are ready for everyone else's kids to go to war...
Of course, up in Maine there wasn't much of that, but the Canadians would come over, hell they got stomped just for being Canadian pretty much. Americans went over trolling for Canuk girls and the Canuks came over trolling for Merican girls. Always a mix up when one ran into the other...
In June of 1604, Samuel de Champlain and Sieur Des MontÕs landed on St. Croix Island near the mouth of the St. Croix River within the present day city limits of Calais. With their companions they spent the winter there, creating the first European settlement on the North American continent north of Florida, and founding the
French colony of Acadia. While the winter was harsh and the settlement moved to Nova Scotia the next year, the international significance of this event cannot be understated. The island is the English equivalent of Plymouth Rock to those of French descent.
This is where I lived up in Maine as a kid, well there and also Woodland which was even further out in the middle of nothing but Woods, Bears, Deer, Trout and boy kind of things to do... LOL
we used to do some seriously stupid shit just for something to do...
Wife and I drove to Nashville Tn in 2008
Saw the Grand Ole Opry and went on
down to Charleston SC. We were going to
St Augustine but she got sick so we headed
back to Texas. I want to go back in a year or 2.
This summer we plan to go to Raton NM and
spend some time at the NRA Whittington
Center. Hope to meet some GUNSLOT
pretty old town
Sounds like a nice trip for sure. I'd like to run out there with my wife, but I think we're going to Front Site for 2 weeks.. Thinking about buying a Lifetime Membership there, though I'm not sure yet.
One thing I do want to do is drive all though the midwest and west. I've been lucky with the work I used to do I've made it to all but three states. Only problem was I never had more than a Day to get out and see things...
I got hurt in the early 80's went back to school and got into computers, then into communication and did contract work for the Government, IA, all branches of the Military and some other agencies... Tell you what, they could get people off their asses in alll of those places and save some money big time by getting rid of the Defense Contractors doing what they are fully qualified to do, yet farm out for budget reasons...
pissed off all kinds of people, told them if they really wanted it to be Spanish they wouldn't have sold it... LOL
guess it's past my bed time... LOL
Night CW, you be safe and have a fantastic week!
