    Another Year Older....

    Look what the missus gave me for my birthday present.

    If my camera could focus closer, you could read the inscription on the face of the watch: 1911 .45 Caliber Automatic.

    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.

    That looks superb - and you obviously have a great keeper of a lady there.

    Happy Birthday and have a great day
