NOT SO MUCH A SONG THIS WEEK AS A MEMORY JOG. HOW MANY OF YOU REMEMBER LISTENING TO EPISODES OF THIS SUPER HERO ON AMERICAN FORCES NETWORK RADIO IN THE 1960'S AND 1970'S?

I just heard from Vi Dixon.  Wayne has been in the hospital for 4 weeks.  Did not go into details.  She hopes to have him home by Christmas.  I don't know many men who could have endured what he has had to go through.

Careful using songs on your video, Harold. Sometimes YouTube will take them off because of copyright infringement. I've had a couple pulled off, and one where they just removed the music, which defeated the whole purpose of the video.

Nice card, Frank! Merry Christmas.

Actually warmed up a little bit here, Sig. Got a cold drizzle here that I'm sure is coming down as light snow flurries in the hills to the south and east of me. I'm under 100' in elevation here and I think the snow level is about 300' - 500'.

Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

Dave, by coincidence only I am using 'Sound of silence " by Disturbed which goes great for my story.  Then accidentally I found this, and I cannot copy his stuff because after memorial day I will be putting mine on youtube
