Re: Hero': Who were your's as a child?
HEY PALMER! I dont know any of those dudes, but I now know why you and I get on well. PS, I watched ' THUD PILOTS' on wifey's Amazon Prime subs last night. WOW! To hear those dudes sort of joke about it well... special.
I was airplane crazy as a kid, hence the pilot heros. We had a map of SE Asia at home, and after the news, my dad would go over it with me and we would discuss the day's events. If McNamara had come to our house, the war would have take a different course!
Our neighbor's son was a marine, we sent packages once a month to him filled with food and socks and other things that I could not understand someone wanting, and when he came home, he came over to the house in his class A's to thank us. I don't think Jesus stopping by would have impressed me as much.
It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.
