God has a Shotgun?

This is a couple of my zucchini plants after a hailstorm earlier this week.

The whole garden looked like it was whacked with a shotgun loaded with .45 caliber shot. Small tomatoes were split open by impact; branches were cut clean off the plants.

As much as an aggravation this is to me, I can’t help but to think of what devastation weather can bring to real farmers.

I blame Bush and/or Halliburton.

The Longest Day: 6 June, 1944

Go read about Utah & Omaha beaches here.

Google is celebrating Diego Velazquez- it figures.

I had the opportunity to talk with an older gentleman a few years ago, & the discussion came around to the military- I asked him if he had served.

"Oh yeah", he replied. "Most everyone did in those days".

I pressed on- where did you go?

"Well, I was over in France, y’know, at Normandy." Then he quickly added, as if in apology, "But I was only there for the first three days ‘cause I got hurt & they sent me back…"

Yeah, ONLY the first three days at Normandy. Such are, & were, these men.

Thank you Charlie.

Enlighten someone today about this momentous event a short 64 years ago.

Squeaky is running in interesting quest for information that could prove to be entertaining & educational.

Go to her place & comment if it is suitable to your political position.

We can’t leave Squeaky disappointed in her quest, now can we?

The Beaver is SIXTY Today...

No, that's Jerry Mathers, wiseguy.

Makes one feel kinda aged, it does.
