    #43 has special meaning to me...i have done this several times. My grandfather served in both theaters in day when we were out to lunch on a "Grandpa Date" when i was 11 or 12- he bought a guy in uniform lunch. When I asked him if he knew him he said no...but one time when he was in the service home on leave a WWI vet bought his lunch and thanked him for serving. He said that it is a small way he can thank military people for his freedom. That meant so much to me that I do it anytime i am in a resturant and someone in uniform is eating. i dont make it about me- just pay for it and leave a thank you for your service note with the waitress.

  4. Correction *48*, somehow I missed that whole playing in a band thing, Thanks to your lovely wife for pointing out my gross over site.

  5. Ya know, its right about now, that I was wishing I had the ability to edit my posts here, 49, I have actually been on a cruise, forgot about that one too. I think thats the last one I forgot.

  6. I finally cought up with your short stories, I missed "the swimmer" some how.

    Great "NON" fiction. I'm trying to remember who that cute diver might have been! I think I have an idea. Great story though. I remember my one and only year of swimming very well! I was good, really good, at backstroke and didnt' go out for swimming the next year, to play basketball w/my friends. STUPID.


Keep it clean...
