Cost of Livin'

My nephew turned me on to this song. I think it speaks volumes about what is going on in the "Real World".  All this talk in D.C. isn't addressing the real problems that face so may folks these days. I don't have the answers... only questions....

I've had to take a little "down" time. I'll be back in a day or two, I promise. It's probably the heat, which I was all ready to fuss about....  Till then I found this on my FaceBook page. 

I was going to complain about how hot it is, then I realized that: 1.) It isn't 109 degrees; 2.) I'm not 5,700 miles from home; 3.) I'm not dressed in a full BDU'S and helmet and carrying 70+ lbs.; and. 4.) There is very little chance that anyone will shoot at me or that I might drive over a bomb in the road today! 
Thanks to all who serve. 
I may not agree with the war  but I support our veterans.

  6. Thank you all for all your kind comments. I'm sorry it's taken so long to respond.
