      Amen, aGrimm.

      On two other notes:

      (1) Happy Belated Birthday, Marine Corps. Salute.

      (2) How is it possible that your post is marked as 2:20pm? Didn’t TAH go thru this last year with time of post not corresponding with actual time?

      😉

        Yep. My comment is annotated as being posted as 2:50pm.

        Time to fix the TAH Clock. Again.

          aGrimm ^word^ good to have you back.

          ninja I wished the Devil Dogs a Happy Birthday on the 5 More Returned post yesterday. Somebody else put one on another post. Was a little surprised/disappointed there was no post on the Birthday doings. I made a lemon pudding pound cake and had vanilla bean ice cream for my Jar Headed Compatriots.

          My furbabies are with you. They dob’t grasp the idea of suppertime coming later. You are also correct on it being awhile last year before some one climbed the clock tower and moved the hands.

          Kennedy…Recorded by history to be a semi decent guy. In reality…not so much. Guess it’s in their gene pool to be horn dogs. Never could understand why he had to wallow around with soiled doves when had had Jackie O for carnal relations.

            Assuming he was getting any. Remember one of the basic laws: No matter how pretty, how sexy, how gorgeous; somewhere, sometime in the recent past some guy looked her square in the eyes and said “I am so sick of your shit!”
