Is an itch pain? When you have an Itch, you have to scratch it. At least I do. I have a few “itch” stories floating around. When I was a kid, I absolutely hating getting poison ivy on my balls. No way to fake that scratch, and I’ve dosed my Johnson so many times it’s damn near [...]
Another few for the Food Pic Haters. The Juju Woman had one of those birthdays ending in a 0. So, I called my friend who has a Catdaddy crib on on Wrightsville Beach here in North Carolina. I asked him about having a little get-together (4 days, THU – SUN or MON) for the Juju [...]
Remember the sacrifice for all who died for America. Although my father was in the Pacific, he had many friends who never made it back from the landings on Normandy. Rather than post a picture of the landing, I posted this one for the guys who jumped or crash landed gliders behind the German lines. It [...]
I understand some colleges are offering (for credit) classes in CYBER WARFARE. This is a great idea, on so many levels. Cyber Warfare is all about hacking, and we need the best hackers we can get. I use to write Linux firewalls for money…and for fun as well, so I do understand computer security. These classes are [...]
I might have posted this before. No matter, it still pisses me off to no end. My Grandmother died about twenty years ago. We held a funeral service at the cemetery, and afterwards, friends and family went over to my Mom’s for a gathering. Pretty standard except for this: My first cousin and her husband, on [...]

God Bless all who gave their lives so I can be free, and God bless all of the living who served and those who still are. This will remain on top for today, regardless if I post anything else. .
I have several friends who flew both F-104’s and A-6 Intruders during the Vietnam war. Front seat, back seat, and side seat. Jimbo, who was the bombardier/navigator who rides side seat in a Intruder tells of the scariest moment in his life. “It was dark and we had just released our bombs. As we were climbing [...]
Edward Thomas Edwards was one of my best friends ever. He was at the top of my gang of friends, and we went way back…all the way back. I’m fortunate. I still have many friends who go all the way back. We are as tight now as we were then. I am fortunate. I’ve been posting [...]
My Buddy Laura who drives Fetch My Flying Monkeys reminded me of this. I don’y know about recycling oyster shells, but when I was in my middle twenties, I fell into a live oyster bed in about 2-3 inches of water. Was I drunk? Not really, I lets just say I had been drinking. I [...]
