    Elijah Cummings DTS

    The word hero is way overused nowadays. I wouldn't disagree with anyone that called Elijah Cummings a true hero. If there were people like Cummings in Congress, the country would probably be be in a better place. RIP sir.

    I think that is a bit of a stretch.

    At least you could have posted a version of it that they sang in their prime, not one where they are on the stage, practically in wheelchairs. I am getting up in the years, most of my favorite bands are either a little older than me or the same age, or dead.. That doesn't mean I like to hear them as a shadow of their former selves.

    Ginger Baker... does his last roll!

    He will be easy enough to find. Just look in the octopus's garden.

    Ahem. I was a redhead, now a silver fox. I can assure you not all redheads are assholes. Now Ginger was a ginger, my hair was that copper colored red, some would say auburn. My sister has the same color hair as mine was and she is one of the nicest people you would ever meet. Now if you want to say all gingers are assholes, I would agree.

    B-17 Crash in CT

    In one of my many jobs some years ago I worked with a guy that was a WW II vet. Frank was a ball turret gunner on a B-17. He was a little guy, ball turret gunners needed to be small to get into and fit in the turret on the belly of the plane. Frank was an ornery old bastard, we got into it several times. On of those times I really pissed him off and I think he wanted to hit me. I was in my mid 30s at the time, a big guy in good shape. I would have pummeled his little ass except I had to respect what he did back then; day after day, crawling into that tiny plexiglass ball turret, knowing what he had to look forward to. I am sure Frank has long left this world now, respect little guy. The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner BY RANDALL JARRELL From my mother’s sleep I fell into the State, And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze. Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life, I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters. When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.

    I took this photo this past weekend while in Nurnberg, Germany. In today's world, you would think that they would consider that many, many people know at least some English, before deciding on a name for a store. Especially in Europe.

    So I am standing at the urinal and a guy comes to the next one over. I'm not one to strike up conversations with strangers in the men's room but I felt compelled to tell this guy that I noticed a quarter in the urinal next to the one he was using. The guy looked over, rummaged in his pants pocket with his free hand and threw 3 more quarters in with the first one. I said "Hey, why did you do that?" He said "For a quarter it isn't worth reaching into a urinal but for a buck, hey..." Maybe you could try that next time you see a quarter lying on the sidewalk. Amazing what you can do with desire and the proper motivation.

    Hey. My wife takes them for a 2 mile walk/run in the forest, followed by a dip in the local small lake every morning. Stanley is in fine shape for an old guy and Bella, well she's a late middle aged woman and you know how that goes.

    Bella is 3 years younger than Stanley, so she wants to do everything he does and likes to sleep where he likes to sleep. Sometimes this leads to conflict but Stanley is a gentleman so he always lets Bella have her way. I always put his food dish down first because he is older, but Stanley waits until I put Bella's dish down before he will eat his food.
