Obama (Barry) makes Jimmy Carter look appealing as a president. Go on with ya!

On this day the United States Marine Corps is 240 years old.  I and other Marines all celebrate today worldwide.


Three simple syllables. Yet, one of the most powerful words in our lexicon. One of the most meaningful. It identifies the person so called as having a place in history. They left behind family and friends and stepped into the breach risking their lives for the protection of others and the freedoms we all share.


The word, the label, if you wish, transcends the ages, and more. It does not discriminate over sex. It does not look at cultural heritage. It cares not for your religion or political beliefs. It does not care if you were in one branch of service over another. It does not measure your service based on the tasks you were assigned. It does not care if you were drafted or joined as a volunteer. It only cares that you stood and took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.


A simple word that identifies the person so honored as called as being a part of history. Each one has stories unique to the time and locations of where they served. Each left family and friends behind and stepped forward into the breach risking their lives for the protection of others and for the freedoms we all share.

You stood your watch and honored are

Now feel the breath of history brush across your face

Here the voices of those who went before you

And those who came after whisper your name

You who left your family and friends behind

And stepped forward to protect them

Drafted or joined

You faced loneliness

You witnessed violence

And felt the cold sense of fear

And you stood your watches

Regardless of where you were

Or the time of day

Or the weather that surrounded you

In daylight or night, warm or cold, dry or chilled by rain

You kept your orders regardless of the pain

It matters not what sex you are

Nor the color of your skin

It matters not what religion you take comfort in

Or, perhaps, none at all

It doesn’t matter what task you were assigned

From clerk to rifleman, to sailor, or in the sky

You stood your ground for freedom and for family

You stood your watch, and honored are

And honor laid upon you the title: Veteran


The Great Caesar Salad Debacle

Have you ever had a Caesar Salad with the contents of which were leafy greens (not Romaine) and the dressing made up of an oil and vinegar mixture with pepper and salt tossed in? No? Well, at a local restaurant named Cedar Plank Fish Camp Monday night that is what I was served. But, it gets better than that.
          I told the waitress that the dressing was not a Caesar dressing and, therefore, the salad was not a Caesar Salad. Well, young thing promptly went to the manager and then the kitchen to set it right for me. Jan continued to eat and I sat and waited for a proper Caesar Salad with Romaine lettuce and Caesar dressing.
          I expected the salad would be replaced and put the plate off to the side. What happened next left me totally baffled.
          After ten minutes the waitress arrived at our table with a small dish and in the dish was a concoction of God knows what floating in Olive Oil.
          Naturally, I asked her kindly what it was and she responded it was what the Chef had made to put on my Caesar Salad. Uh huh. Yep.
          Well, I am sure you can well understand my relief with that answer as I wasn’t sure if I should put it on my salad, drink it, or smear it all over the tabletop to form some sort of abstract art piece within which I would then pour the contents of my NOT Caesar Salad and call it all Man’s Confusion in a Restaurant.
          So, she wanted me to pour it over the existing salad with its existing oil and vinegar dressing.
          I declined.
          The manager roamed over and asked if I would like to entertain the thought of something else to eat, some replacement for my non-Caesar Salad with its questionable greens and oil and vinegar dressing.
          I declined. We paid the bill, less the salad and left.
          When we stepped outside I looked back at the eight or ten people at their tables waiting or eating their food and then at the line of people waiting at restaurant next door.  I wonder how long this restaurant is going to make it. I do know that I have never in my life been served a Caesar Salad that doesn’t have Romaine lettuce and a proper Caesar Salad Dressing. Needless to say we won’t be going back there.
