Spring Springs for a Day or Two....The Leftist Lies of the Vietnam War...,
As I woke up and began to get ready for my double header at Convoy Crestview, the skies were a mix of clouds and sun....as game time approached, the clouds became more prevalent, but the rains held off. I took the plate for game #1 between Antwerp and Lincolnview, my partner, Jim Runneals would work game #2 which featured Ottoville and Spencerville. Both games would be close and competitive.
Antwerp, which came into the tournament with just 1 win against 11 loses, jumped out to a 3-0 over the Lancers...and held on for a 3-2 win, to move on with a date with top seeded Crestview on Wednesday. Game one lasted just 1 hour and 35 minutes...I was pleased with my performance...not sure everybody else was, but you have to please yourself first. Game #2 was just as close, but was not going to be played as quick.
At this hour I am scheduled for Delphos Jefferson tonight, but I'm not sure what the exact schedule might be, due to the rain on Saturday which disrupted some of the tournament sites.
Mothers Day Sun____
After the MRSI Board meeting at Noon today, I plan on getting my sunflowers planted...Patricia got her flower beds worked and planted yesterday...not complete but far enough along for some progress to be seen.
The lies of Vietnam_____
While the left wing press and politicians continue to spew there lies about the Vietnam War, the troops who served and fought there, and the reasons and outcome...it is obvious that some folks that never served in Vietnam continue to claim they did. I guess this must be the new "Cause Celeb" ...to claim you did something you didn't. For all the hate from the young folks who either didn't have to go, or who jumped the Canadian Border, the press, and Hollywood, that was thrown at us when we returned...it amazes me that anyone would want to claim to be a "baby killing Vietnam Veteran(insert sarcasm)". I guess absence makes the heart grow founder...not only for the veterans that were there, but for the cause as well. At least the traitors on the far left, who hated us for our service, should continue to do so...after all, we still despise them for their treason.
As far as serving in Vietnam...it's really pretty simple to prove or disprove...drag out your separation papers the DD 214....the proof should be right there...Mine Is: "Vietnam Yes" says it all. As we all know the lies about Vietnam and the lies about those who served there will continue as long as the left wing morons control the vast majority of the media, and the sheep and lemmings continue to believe the likes of the NY Times and CBS:
I don't have a problem with Veterans stretching the truth a bit...what I have a problem with are the useless bastards that protested us during the 1960s and 70s, and now either claim to embrace us, or worse yet, claim to be one of us.... screw them and the lies they spew.
The entire subject makes me want to puke....
Time to get out and breath some fresh air....
Photos-Hopefully this years variety of Sunflowers and size are equal to, or better than last years great crop....Spring baseball winds down, but I still have a full schedule for Summer...and the DD214...all the proof you should need to dispel any doubts about your service record.
