Free French soldiers attend a mass at sunrise during the siege of Bardia, Libya 1940.

My dad, who was stationed with the Free French Army in Algeria from late ‘43 until the end of the war as a US Army technical observer, passed away two weeks ago September 8, 2014.  He worked with GM and taught the French how to operate and maintain their GM tanks.  He won a Bronze Star for heroism-I had no idea!  He also got high tail it up to Paris for VE Day!

He told my sons that he felt lucky to be “embedded” (not his term) with the French. “Great food and great poker!” he told them.

  3. Not one of Eddie’s very best routines, but pretty damn funny. This helps me, since I have a son just in pre-puberty and a son in full plague state.

    Also, Eddie fills us in on his transvestism.

    I think now that he is just expressing his interest in ladies’ things through eyeliner-you see, he wants to run for MP from his home district of Yorkshire-his scripts are not as funny. Perhaps I should do a “blinded” comparison of Eddie just before and just after he stopped dazzling us with his executive transvestite ensembles…

    Anyway, listen. Funny!

Meet Otter 501: http://youtu.be/x-3ECtObdH0. This little baby doll is here to remind you of Sea Otter Appreciation Week!

She’s a baby sea otter.  I think her name is Giphy.  I love her.  I will be spending part of rest of the afternoon watching the episode from Nature that goes with this.  You can go to the You Tube video link above and find the link to the Nature episode.  Sea otters and river otters are so different, but I adore them both!

Some Giphy love for you, since this is Sea Otter Awareness Week.

    "Scottish Independence"
    Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

    I laughed so hard I almost wet myself…

    THE VOTE IS THIS THURSDAY, September 18, 2014.

    I’m pulling hard for the Rampant Lion to run free!

    ///////////////////////////////////// I never posted this! Spacegirl + screwy iPad Tumblr app! I would feel happier about the result had JO been in charge of “Better Together”. Note J.K. Rawlings big bucks contributions to the “No” vote. I am still trying to figure that all out!
     
  7. My dad passed away two weeks ago. I read an abbreviated version of this song at his grave site. Oh to have had a decent voice and a guitar!

    What Matt Johnson wrote in this song gave me comfort: Dad is still here in some form. He may return in the spring as a bird or or a flower or a baby squirrel for all I know. He could be in the wind or the rain. What comforts me is I know that dad is still part of the mix of nature. This verse really stuck with me…

    In our lives we hunger, for those we cannot touch. All the though unspoken and the feeling unexpressed weigh upon our hearts like mist upon our breath,

    Awoken by grief, our spirits speak, “How could you believe the spirit within the seed, Grew arms that reached and a heart that beat And lips that smiled and eyes that cried Could ever die?
