    One time my grandad started off with “back during the war—”

    Grandma cut him off with “which one? Civil?”

    Sorry, Skyler, wrong war: his wife used a tent peg on Sisera.

    Somebody doesn’t know his history, does he?! I always thought history would be A Lot more interesting if the subject was about human interaction and not all about the dreary and nonsensical wars which, to me, clog up the whole purpose of history in the first place… ;)

    Wow! You went back more than 3000 years for that war! Interesting story, how Jael did him in.

    Not to mention how much “history” differs between the winners & losers of wars. A friend of my husband is married to a Japanese woman from a small town. She was taught that WE attacked them & Pearl Harbor was in retribution.

    I would have asked it it was the 0I or the I0 (pardon by binary).

    Oh, ouch! And with that, for the first time I’m glad more young people are history illiterate (that’ll pass quickly, though.)

    As I’ve mentioned before I first felt my years when a young lady responded to my having lived through the 60s as though I were Dances with Dinosaurs. Sigh.

    My aunt knew someone whose grandfather fought in the Revolutionary war. The male line of the family had a tradition of marrying late and fathering children while in their 80’s.

    It was the War on Poverty. He lost.

    WWI was big for the world, but no war was bigger for the US than the Civil War. I think it’s an honest and understandable mistake. That bird does look awfully old.
