Why Would You Pull An Ambulance Over?



The outcome of this have yet to be seen but it probably won't be good. The woman was being transported to the hospital for heatstroke. She is ok.

For more of the story, it's  here.  You've just got to ask yourself, why?  Couldn't it have waited until they got the woman to the hospital and unloaded her?  What a setup for a lawsuit!

This We'll Defend

Army Song

Caisson Song (1908, original version)
Over hill over dale we have hit the dusty trail
As our caissons go rolling along.
Up and down, in and out, Countermarch and right about,
And our caissons go rolling along.


For it's hi-hi-hee in the Fifth Artillery, Shout out the number loud and strong.

Till our final ride, It will always be our pride
To keep those caissons a rolling along.
(Keep them rolling - keep them rolling)*
Keep those caissons a rolling along.
(B-a-t-t-e-r-y H-a-l-t!)*


The Army Goes Rolling Along (1956, current official version)
typically only the first verse and refrain are sung (not including the intro)
Intro:
March along, sing our song, with the Army of the free
Count the brave, count the true, who have fought to victory
We're the Army and proud of our name
We're the Army and proudly proclaim
Verse:
First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along

Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle’s won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along.
Refrain:
Then it's Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army's on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.

Verse:
Valley Forge, Custer's ranks,
San Juan Hill and Patton's tanks,
And the Army went rolling along
Minute men, from the start,
Always fighting from the heart,
And the Army keeps rolling along.
(Refrain)
Verse:
Men in rags, men who froze,
Still that Army met its foes,
And the Army went rolling along.
Faith in God, then we're right,
And we'll fight with all our might,
As the Army keeps rolling along.
(Refrain)

1973-One of the most memorable years of my life



M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can't say we're satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can't say we never tried
Angie, you're beautiful, but ain't it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?

Oh, Angie, don't you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain't it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can't say we're satisfied
But Angie, I still love you, baby
Ev'rywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain't a woman that comes close to you
Come on Baby, dry your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain't it good to be alive?
Angie, Angie, they can't say we never tried

Take a Little Trip with Me

Still a beautiful and fun place to visit.
Navajo Fire Dance
What are you looking at?
Making use of a timer
I used to sit on these lions 
when I was little.
It was the most beautiful and sunny day we have had
in weeks.  So we took a little trip to Woolaroc.  It's very 
near our home and such a wonderful place with 
lots of animals to see.

Mothers and Daughters


 My son took our photo for us, he does not enjoy being in a photo.  
Flowers, cards, a rose, and presents.  I fixed fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, biscuits, and gravy for lunch.  We had a nice day together.  My mother got to hold her new great-grandson the evening before.  That would be my nephew pictured a few posts ago.

The Picture of Dorian Gray


My husband acted in high school.  Here he was Dorian Gray.  I always loved watching the high school perform plays.  That got us out of class to watch.  Bonus!  But I especially liked this guy (second from the left).  I even bought these photos from the year book because I liked him so much.  He didn't know it at the time.  I was a sophomore and he was a senior.  He only noticed me when I would walk down the Cotton Gin Road to my house from town or the high school.  He had a friend in his band that lived a quarter of a mile past my house.  There were times he would give me a ride when I was walking to work at the nursing home.  I had one cute uniform with a fitted waist.  I surely did like that uniform.  



Here is my future husband receiving an award for drama.

I liked seeing him in a caveman suit.  I had to check out his legs!

Wordless Wednesday-Dunes

This little orange buggy is ours.  That's my husband and son in it.
For more Wordless Wednesday go here.


They are pulling a dune slowly.  
Moi.



I am standing on top of my four-wheeler for this video. You really don't get a good grasp of how tall these dunes are until you are there. They are from 80 to 100 feet tall.  We're at the top of a dune and those four-wheelers are at the top of another dune.  The dune drops off just on the other side of the orange buggy.  We rode the tops of many dunes.  It is marvelous fun!

Colonoscopy

Today I took my husband to get a colonoscopy.  He prepared for it starting on Saturday afternoon eating only jello and clear liquids.  Then the fun began on Sunday afternoon with the solution taken to clean you out.  Several hours later, mission accomplished!  

You know what?  They even give you color photos of your colon.  I'm sure you don't want to see them.  Butt, he was given a good bill of health.  No need for another test for ten more years.  

New Great-Nephew

My new great-nephew Lincoln.  He weighed 8 lbs. 11 oz.  22 inches long.
Born today May 4, 2009.  Congratulations Chad and Suzy!
