Ha! That's funny! Is your brother alive? How well is he? Just asking. I heard from an old friend of mine who was serving Vietnam war, and he told me that was very terrible. :? War is hell! Well, I do miss him because he died in 1999 from liver cirrichois, how you spell it? He was heavy alcohol drinker since he was 17, until he died at age 56.

By the way, it is only 15 days till XMAS! :D

Yes, my Vietnan Vet brother is still alive, and he just turned 67 years old today. Vietnam didn't have that much of an effect on him, but he was hit with Gillian Beret Syndrome back in 03, and ne never fully recovered from it. Permanant nerve dmage has made it all but impossible for him to move about without a walker.

They're actually white lights, they look orange at dusk and because of the setting I had my camera on.

I like your decorations, Andy, but you ken what they could use? Some fake blood and some severed limbs.

Just sayin'.

3 more days to go!!! :D

These past couple of weeks in the lead up to Christmas have flown by! Most of the preparations I needed to do are sorted so I'm going to sit back and enjoy the rest of the build up. ;)
