"A Winter Moonset over Destin"

Since I got skunked by cloud cover this morning and tonight, I'll just post a pic from a couple of years back.

It was 50 years ago, today (January 31, 1968, at 02:30 am). The beginning of the end, some call it. But it dragged on for another deathly five years, thanks mainly to Nixon and Kissinger (IMO), and their non-existent 1968 "plan" to end the war. I am currently reading the Bowden book, "Hue 1968." All three are great reads. Today would be a very good day to read about this epic day in US and Vietnamese history.





Post-WW2 Joy (too good not to share)

My beautiful parents. Dad was an arty officer. N. Africa. Captured by the Germans, and escaped when a British Spitfire strafed the marching column.

Then, Italy (wounded, recovered (Purple Heart)). Winter of '44 in a pup tent. With the first US forces through the gates at the horror of Dachau.

Married my mom, a school teacher. Dad got his PhD at Auburn, and became a professor at the University of Georgia. Incredible couple dedicated to public education.

If I look a tad like either of them, I'm doing good!
