had a Bn commander in 2nd Mar Div at Camp Lejeine ,WW2 Enlisted man andKorea vet as an officer He could not wait for squirrel season, he would describe with enthusiasm how he would shoot them build a quick outdoor fire an skewer them skinned of course, then eat roasted them on the spot. He said after WW2 he got a degree under the GI BILL at a "diploma mill" that was prevalent ' I took note that a squirrel is kin to a rat, just for future knowledge in event of lack of food availability. The Colonel was a redneck but a most likeable guy.
Rats were very prevalent in Rung Sat Special Zone Vietnam and sometime would wake me up at night crawling over me while sleeping in boots & uniform. never tried to shoot them off always worried of shooting my foot by mistake, they never hurt me so I would swat them off like a mosquitoe.

Not a real hunter not to call it venison. Re squirrel - not much eating after picking out the No. 8 shot.

If you want to hear "southern," the Baltimore Ravens drafted a guard, Ben Cleveland, from Georgia. Now this man is southern. Says he eats what's in the frig, and when it's empty he goes to his deep freeze for deer meat, and when that's gone, he's got some squirrels saved. In high school, after a game he'd stop off for pizza, buy three to take home where he'd eat two and save one for breakfast. I think after his playing days, he's a natural for WWWF wrestling.

BILl ( The GUTE) and Ollie, I have spent so much time below the
Mason Dixon line in my lifretime, That I larned to understand
'southern' and once told Jane Leftwich (Bills widow
USMC '54 ) that listening to her talk it was receiving "Ear Candy." You know, there is some distinction between the Northern & Southern Japanese. when I discovered that, I was not surprised , think it has something to do with the earth orbit. but at USNA it was not prevalent in MD :-)

As heart wrenching as it is, Biden is president. Our republic has one principal. Every four years we count the votes and the one with the most wins. I say to the Democrats, "Enjoy. You were warned about Biden's policies and their effect. It's happening. You lost your right to complain."

Ed: I think the only reason Obama isn't living with Biden is because Michelle did not want to be VP. Obama may be living well off his "eight year investment" but his real ambition is to move to Europe and run the UN. He would enjoy trying to untangle that mess.

Navy football is losing its leading returning rusher, a surprising development that is a gut punch for an offense hoping to recover from a disappointing 2020 season.

Multiple sources told The Capital that projected starting fullback Jamale Carothers has been dismissed from the Naval Academy because of an honor code offense. He has entered the NCAA transfer portal and will spend his senior season elsewhere.

well, she is better looking than Biden and doesn't have a son that had foolishly dishonorably dipped into the honey pot. But, I think socialism will go up, and Obama is not steering anything. He is enjoying his accumulated wealth. This is a beginning of the Shadow Ages

Ed: I can't imagine what Kamala Harris would do from the Oval Office. She doesn't even know how to find the border where all the illegals are wading across. On Tuesday, May 11, 2021, 09:54:09 PM MDT, QuickTopic daily digest <qtopic-50-fwcx9rsydfqus@quicktopic.com> wrote:

Ed: I still believe Obama is directing traffic in the Oval Office via Susan Rice and Powers. He has been videoed telling the world that would be the ideal arrangement for him, and he got it.

Check the website every morning. They quit updating my iMac software years ago, so I had to get a new iPod to stay current.

"Good Grief" Jay, we need to keep Biden as President, and the person in line for his spot is more a socialist, Bidin has his hand full , re divisivness in the Dems, and his memory, and his health. So far he has screwed up a lot of things but it could be worse.

Will: I'm still here after passing the 90 year milestone. My mother only made it to 60 and dad 67. My brother and sister are both gone. Sis was 11 months older but brother 9 years younger. Pres Biden just sent me a birthday card on 7 May. (B-day was 2/13/21). I sent him a thank you card but the last sentense was "I hope you fail". I wonder who will read that.

I Check the Log and Forum daily, At 91 I have plenty of time to do easy things, but thing that require muscle and joint to work without pain is something else but, i am not complaining about things, as avoiding tripping and falling which has caused a couple black eyes.when bonking my head and explaining how I got The shiner. I usually reply "Girl Scout were persistent on selling me cookies and they won." OR "you should see the other guy."

Will,
Make that three!
(I check our class website multiple times every day;
but, when it comes to making posts, I guess I have to admit that I'm a lurker).
