Default War



Hope this doesn't get shipped to the bilge. It's not political, just about war in general. Yesturday would have been my dad's 88th birthday, he served in Marines in the south Pacific during WWII.

I remember a civil war era gun barrel up in a tree on the C&O canal, it was shown to me by a ranger when I was a kid. Left an impression on me. Your image is amazing...

This better not get shipped to the bilge. Our young men and women have been dying on foreign shores for over 200 years. Thank God for them and the families that have suffered through it.

Somebody replacing that tire every few years? Doesn't look to be almost 100 years old but I'm a skeptic after all. The message "feels good" though.

You would be suprised how long those old tires will last. There was an old logging road on the boarder of my family's property. To this day there is an old tire leaning against a tree. According to my father, it was there when he was a kid in the 40's.

Hat's off to your father for his service! My dad would of been 90 this month. He served in the Army Combat engineers in the Pacific. War had a profound effect on him in that he was always wanting to get together with the guys he served with. Those guys could put away the beer when they got together and oh, the stories!
