Memorial Day 2006

And they who for their country die
Shall fill an honored grave,
For glory lights the soldier's tomb,
And beauty weeps the brave.

Thanks for the link to the Stein speach. It should be mandatory reading.

It really should be. Ben Stein is a great American, isn't he?

"speach"? You'd think that boy was "screweled" in Luzeeanna! ;-)

Moms are allowed to poke fun aren't they? Besides...he was probably testin' to see if ole mom was a step behind him.

M3--your posts have been outstanding. Good reads and very to the point. Lizzie tends to steal your thunder though. :-) What expressions!

Yeah, Lizzie is something else!

Thankya, ma'am.
