  1. What a beautiful and wonderful story. It is supremely topped off by the gift of the navy “dixie cup” hat. Thanks for sharing Dr Tar.

    I’ll be voting Lou Barletta and Scott Wagner.

    The galley master sez: Caesar wants to go water skiing.

  4. I can’t believe that no one noticed that he said Nixon was taken out of office. Not true. Nixon resigned. Many speculated that he would be removed from office however, we will never know, will we?
    Please teach our adorable children the truth.
