Gooooood Morning, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and all numbers of Spades...
*ponders* Somehow, that didn't sound right. Oh, well.
Adding Stringer Davis to the pencil-point tat club.

The Vote? Get Out! Three never-before-recorded old Radical Incline political-ish songs wrapped in political commentary and cartoonery.
Newly-recorded: three songs, one instrumental, plus a cartoon, and black & orange Hallowe'en cats!
The War was over as soon as it had Begun
It's that time of the year when I think about my Uncle Ed, who had just lived through a trudge across Europe, and then was being prepared for the assault upon Japan, where his (and so many soldiers
Hey, Seamus, did you quit posting the diary entries after D-Day, or have I just been missing them? Well, I do miss 'em, one way or another.
I am a healthcare worker and I've seen it all, but I'm still telling myself how lucky we are to be born now and not then when it comes to trauma treatment and med field in general.
...Hans assembled two bicycles, and they fled Paris just a few hours before it fell....
Wow. I would hate to think of depending on my bicycle assembly skills in the last hour!

The National World War II Museum estimates that by 2036, there will be no living veterans out of the roughly 16 million who served from the United States.

Rome is ours....
Got a little dusty-eyed reading that one.
G'd'ev'ning, best morons in the world!
Survived the war, and still alive,
My dear old Uncle Ed
Was scheduled to invade Japan,
They dropped the bomb instead.
The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
Seamus Muldoon: ...PW count was well over 4000.
Palate cleanser #1:
Reunited: US soldier and escapee who directed troops to Dachau Concentration Camp.
Jen #53: Millenials are asking, "whose [who's] Stalin"?
Hell, they don't even know who Hitler was. Or what WW2 was about! Or who fought it!
Returned from the morning thread, where I saw that the Civil War was being re-fought. Again. Always ejjimicational.
Islamic State militants attacked Syrian army troops with mustard gas in an offensive against a Syrian military airport in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor that borders Iraq...
That was quite a ... terrorific post, Maet. If I hadn't been assured by the SCoaMF that we'd won the war on terror, I might be concerned about the direction of things.
Seamus: ...Will try to catch up with the Anzio diary a couple days at a time until we are back to concurrent dates.
Seamus Muldoon: That eternal shelling continues. Surprising how little damage it does but it is harassing to the "n"th.
That was pithy!
Turd Ferguson: "war-grade weapons" ... That's a pretty broad category.

An Observation: Easy to see why the military didn't want anyone keeping these kinds of journals, if they fell into enemy hands they would be of tremendous value for targeting etc.
Seamus Muldoon: Seems to me that by mentioning no thoughts of war that the thought of war was still with him. Understandable.
Amazed and amused once again, Maet, at the topics you cover, some in concise depth.
