Default Wow! What a Ride!

What more can a man ask for, at least in polite company, than being surrounded by family, good friends, excellent health, and a forgiving Savior! Gifts from my lovely bride, visits from our children, reality permitting, the ability to split 1/2 of a cord of firewood before a most welcome, soaking rain set in to really make the fire in the fireplace a point of reflection and warmth. Life is good!!!

Now, to address all you wonderful folks, some individually

82Rigger: flintlock my foot! Us Scots preferred claymores and sharp pointy things called swords! Quieter that way!

Packy: Careful - if I'm that old, I'm also old enough to discipline you. Now drop and give me twenty!

LT: the GI system still functions like a 21 year old, as do ALL the other body parts. Eat your heart out!

revwardoc: don't know what it was like at the Alamo. I was the one outside scouting for reinforcements, thrill-seeking senoritas, and a fast horse. For the last 50+ years, I get screwed every Christmas, heh heh!

bOOger: thoroughly enjoyed your call yesterday! I really ain't old, compared to the live oaks now enjoying a long soaking rain!

Seascamp: you're the only one that even came close! Claymores indeed!

Keith: that's COL geezer to you! Now where's my therapy?

RR: thanks for the good words! I generally enjoy every day - can't always sy the same thing for folks around me!

Neil: just glad I didn't have to hump all that heavy M1 ammo! My sauce these days is for the BBQ!

SH62: yep, some of my erstwhile detractors don't have that far to reach to pick up those rocks. Maybe they'll learn to walk upright yet!

JerryD and Trav and Larry: thanks to youse guys for the kind words.

... and to Bern and Dave, thanks for the pm and more importantly, for being some of my heroes, for creating this wonderful cyber space for us!

Figured I had ya figured..........


"The name Scottish claymore is thought to be from claidheamh m?r?a Gaelic term meaning "big sword". However, another theory suggests it comes from claidheamh da lamh, literally "two-hand sword."
Two-handed (Highland) claymore
The two-handed claymore was a large sword used in the Medieval period. It was used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from circa 1300 to 1700."
