Frank, humans weren’t meant to live on the east coast in the summer.  I’m thinking more like Bali or Tahiti.

HARRY, I AM NOT ON ANY OTHER DRAGOON SITES. ONLY OLDTIMERS.

CAN YOU PUT THIS ON SOME OF THE OTHER SITES?

A little something to get you crusty old Cav Troopers misty in the morning.

Harold, you’re preaching to the choir.  Your post would get more exposure on the main page.
