Pete, you could be right about the rifles at the inauguration. I had one picture - but I can't find it.

But it does make a good story and I'm going to stick with it unless someone comes up with a picture. 🗿

Good news , BIdin appears healthy, he made a few short sprints to the curb on his walk to the White House and did not rush to the toilet after getting there, It was a very long day for him and a lot of waiting standing It appears he passed a healthy prostate test. He is thinking good as he sprints to friend at the curb,as no one would sprint to him from the curb as they would never make it alive.

Pete: Looks like we were on the same schedule for the vaccine shot. We got ours yesterday at the Los Lunas multipurpose gym at 2 PM. Lots of help checking in, getting the shot, and the 30 min wait. Lots of security from local volunteer fire fighters. Today I'm feeling it a little bit.   Jay On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 09:54:07 PM MST, QuickTopic daily digest <qtopic-50-fwcx9rsydfqus@quicktopic.com> wrote:

I received my first Covid vaccine shot this morning at Jacksonville's VA Clinic. Treatment dates were by last digit of one's SSN. I arrived at 12:30 expecting long lines and a long wait. I was ushered through a few hundred yards of "waiting line" in my car, had my documentation examined, replied to the usual questions, and received my shot about 15 minutes after arrival. After the shot, I and all who received a shot, was/were required to wait for 30 minutes before going home. All told, less than an hour. A really good performance by the VA.

Ya'know, if the mids and cadets march in this inauguration, I'll bet they won't be allowed to carry rifles. Ain't life for the next four years going to be fun?

Mac -- Eyes Left. Wasn't that Eisenhower that we saluted? And the Texas Cavalry ahead of us and with the horses caused us to dodge the piles of manure?

I usually read the obituary section of the Washington Post and occasionally recognize someone's passing. Recently one caught my eye for how it addressed the death. It said that Edward ---- "died on January 9,2021 shortly after his 90th birthday simply of old age, nothing more." I guess that's one way of expressing it!

 On that memorable day back in '53 the 19th Company was waiting by a junk yard, as I recall. I do remember clearly several of us surreptitiously used the gas tank of a wrecked car as an emergency urinal. And I do think that other old vehicles were used in the same way. Not quite what the public would have expected from us but when nature calls and you're a long way from home you just gotta improvise. At least we didn't use the trees.

Will: I remember a few things about that day, but the thing that has always stuck in my mind was that after we got back to our rooms and were getting out of our full dress, the parade was still going on in Washington.

Anybody remember any wild tales bout our participation in the 1953 inauguration.

I seem to remember a 0400 wake up to a box breakfast, draw rifles, board the bus, and ride to a back street in DC. We got out of the bus and fell in. Only 2 mids from each company could go to the head. We finally marched off and passed the reviewing stand. I stole a look and saw Nixon drunk as a skunk. We marched up an alley and finally boarded the busses.

big deal - we made history!

Bill GUTE: How do you get dental bills paid by Tricare for life? We come under Original Medicare and Tricare for life. Medicare sends bill to Tricare for life after they pay their portion (80%). My new Medicare handbook says "Most dental care  is NOT covered by Part A and Part B" . Are you in a different Medicare program?  How do your dental bills get to Tricare for life? We are paying a lot of dental bills ourselves. On Friday, January 15, 2021, 09:53:29 PM MST, QuickTopic daily digest <qtopic-50-fwcx9rsydfqus@quicktopic.com> wrote:

More bragging---
My son Tom's Department of Geography at Virginia Tech university just won the annual "Exemplary Department" award, including a check for $20,000.
Tom, the Head of the Department, distributed the $20,000 amongst all of his departmental teachers.

If someone hasn't decided what their priorities are for 2021 I recommend the following:
  1. Relieve the helm and lookout, lifeboat crew to muster.
  2. All those who haven't done so will do so immediately.
  3. All those having two will turn in one immediately.
  4. All those having none will draw one immediately.
  5. The duty chicken will run down to the galley and run through the soup.
     That should cover the essentials for a Happier New Year!

For those who are supporting dentists, we in Bosque Farms, NM are setting the pace. On Monday Marilyn charged $3768.19 for a bridge. The best is yet to come. The good news is our dentist is only a mile away. We used to drive 217 miles from Roswell to Albuquerque for our dental work.
