"Roger that, Top. Amazing what they can do with replacement joints now days. My older brother had both ankles replaced with titanium and was out tramping the hills in no time bow hunting."

Morning Top.

Just wanted to share this little tid-bit from our history with you. I know you have celebrated a lot of birthdays but I had no idea....

Another hero of the Mexican war was Sergeant Jack Miller, whose small patrol was ambushed by a force five times its number near Monclova in November 1847. The dragoons were going for their carbines when Miller shouted: "No firing, men! If 20 dragoons can't whip 100 Mexicans with the saber, I'll join the Doughboys and cart a fence rail all my life." The Dragoons charged and killed six Mexicans, wounded thirteen, and captured seventy. Casualties in Miller's unit were limited to only one man wounded and three mounts lightly scratched.

Happy Birthday, Top!

Just got done with a little Graf weather. Lows in the teens and highs near freezing. A guy can sure get tired of that in a hurry!

Hope your knee doing better. Take care.
