    Sometimes I Need a Reminder

    Sometimes when I need a lift
    And a reminder of why
    I do the things I do,
    And why in spite
    Of what others think and do
    I remain vigilant and true
    I turn on the speakers on my computer
    I click on this link
    And it all comes back to me
    In colors of Red, White, and Blue.

    Outstanding, doc!

    Thank you!

    Yes, indeed, the Man in Black, my grandson's namesake.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Hey Capn,

    When you look at our avitars in this order. It almost looks like that gun might have been loaded.

    The Man In Black was a pretty deep soul. Future generations will discover him all over again. The songs he wrote and sang, were songs that could touch many from all walks of life.
