: Wellllll, now!!
: A lot of reflective silence is required for this one....except for one statement..."blood is thicker than American citizenship".... hmmmmm!! I can reenact British Highlander, I can be proud of my ancestry (which I've written of before, won't bore anyone again!), but I am damn proud to be an American....and....and...that's why I can see these things through!!
: Any other comments? How about Toot, Seamus, and Three Tales (not to mention all the other fine folk of Mohicanland).
: Your most Humble and Obed't Servant...For God and Country!!
: Dr. Uncle Mark
I, too, was taken aback at that comment...and my initial reaction was terribly unkind, particularly since I do not know this lad, and would likely not be allowed to be printed on this "family page." I will say, however, that that attitude is what made Tories fear for their well-being and flee to Canada or England when it was discovered. Maybe this lad should begin packing...I am heading out to find a couple of old down pillows and then will stop by the road project and get a bucket of tar. I have taken a rail from my fence in the yard and am going to go looking for this guy. Coming with me??
Agree with him or not,though, he can say what he wants because our ancestors, yours(_____Hagenbuch, his first name escapes me at this late hour!Sorry!) and mine (Matteus Koenig), Dr. Unc, fought for the freedom to do just that....and so can I.
America...love it or leave it, Robert F. It seems you just might be happier elsewhere. My grizzled old carcass is riled a bit.....don't mess with me...........
