One of my favorite British television series!
It took me a lot of years before I could finally visit the Wall. Too many names and too many memories…
I realize why you thought I might be Memorial Day because of my mention of remembering fallen comrades – since in many ways their sacrifice was so much greater than many of us who survived. What I was attempting to say is that General Bonespurs & Family have repeatedly disrespected those who have honorably served their country. While he may conveniently forget those who served – living or dead – we veterans sure as hell won’t and we won’t forgive or forget his perfidy, either!
Not only is Donald J. Trump a bully and a coward, but he is also a traitor to his country and a betrayer of the brave men and women in uniform.

HRM has one just like it!
I would never waste a good Key lime pie on a politician!
Not every kid can afford a baseball glove or a bat, or the size or temperament to play American football. But almost every kid can run and kick a ball.
An entire high school soccer team can be funded by what it cost to equip one high school football player.
Because soccer and basketball require a minimum amount of gear – a ball and a couple of nets or hoops – they can be played almost anywhere and by anyone.

Kids can play the game with a minimum amount of supervision or interference.

" Oh yes, it suits perfectly! " he said, careful to avoid mentioning who or what it suited.
He had to attend a funeral today.
I would never have even thought about doing that to my daughter when she was 16. I respected her too much.
We had very open and honest communications – and still, do. That means that I have always been the recipient of more of her personal information than I really needed or wanted to hear.
