  • Paranormal occurrence, OT, but real

    I did good till the honor guard gave me the Flag. Sentimental fool I am I blubbered like a child then.

    Military did a excellent job, crisp, synchonized movements. I spoke to them before they unloaded the casket, they would not look at me, nor answer me. I thanked them all anyway.

    I inherited a flag and a goverment model 45. Seems Dad paid a enourmous sum of $112? for it. That was when people made .50 a hour in the foundry.

    A "Cofer" from the 101'st came down to oversee the service. He is a machinist from Northern Tennessee. I invited him down to play with my cnc/shop, he is out of touch a tad on modern machines, his eyes went a hue when I told him of our HOME shop projects, a sparkle came up.
    Cold blue eyes, His son is in Iraq. Seems he is a good man.

    I will have to build a case for the flag, and the 200 year old indian blanket I got. I suck at working wood into pretty things. Hell I suck at making pretty metal tools too. I make them to use.

    THEY sell for $250 on ebay, seems to be a good thing to make for people and sell. Just taking them around the funeral homes would be all right.

    This is the strangest day I have ever had in my life, things moving around me. Books flying off shelves, pages turning on notebooks, both ways.. My hair is sticking straight up like buckwheats.

    NO luck on the shop computer.. I can't even get it to boot on the floppy, once it starts up, it changes the bios to boot from hard drive. I am fixin ta pull that hard drive completely out..

    Excuse me, I farted.

          Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

          It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

              Dave sorry to hear about your Dads passing. He's headed to much better place. Seems like he's trying to get your attention before he goes.

                  David -
                  I'm very sorry for your loss. My pop passed a little more than 10 years ago. It was a tough time. Best recommendation I can make is to take comfort with those you love and that love you. Be well.

                  The curse of having precise measuring tools is being able to actually see how imperfect everything is.

                              David, I too am sorry to hear about your loss. Chances are you may not see many of these for a few days, I would imagine a lot of things other than on here will be on your mind and requiring your time.

                              Make sure that you stop and look after yourself and your family the next while too, sometimes it's easy to push oneself beyond their limits when events such as this go on.
