Wednesday, did something stupid. Went to our local Denny’s and while the grub went down okay, It stayed mid section, and has been causing me pain since. I don’t blame the servers, but the cooks on staff that night , lets say they leave lots to desire. So resting until mid day Thursday, the kachunk, of fireworks started. Now this I have to say. If people in your neighborhood, are combat Veterans, do not explode fireworks near their homes. The memories of times in a foxhole in the middle of a combat zone are not gone. Those bang,bang, booms, bring back thoughts that are not so long forgotten, might just get you shot. Be kind to our Veterans. On the subject of Independence Day, this nation will not be fully Independent and well assembled until both flags fly together.
