    but after we got back to the house, I was attacked by the couch. :snore A couple hours later I woke up, was walking by the window, stopped & thought :scratch that looked like bill out on the porch. Bout that robin came in & said "bill & jim are out in the front yard & want to know if you can come out and play"

    I grabbed my boots rolled old blue out and away we went...

    But there was a memorial off to the side i'd never noticed. It was to a pilot who flew a recon plane in vietnam. He spotted a large group of bad guys over taking a smaller group of our guys. In his unarmed plane he flew down just above the tree tops and opened fire with his rifle time & time again taking on fire till he was shot down & killed. :bow
