    My friends, that's what makes this Great Country so great.... American Patriots and Ford Trucks!!! Patriots on both side of the daisies. I used to listen to taps every night, and it just meant "Lights Out"... As I have grown a little older (79), every time I hear those mournful notes I get a big-ass lump in my chest, as I wonder who is next. My heart goes out to all who have lost their fathers.... That picture says so much, from the proud man beneath that great flag, to the heroes making sure that his journey is safe and that he is not alone, to that crusty old license plate that says it all. "OKLAHOMA"...... What a truly Great State !!!!

    Thank you, cabong! He was a great patriot!
    I have been in your great state a couple of times, great senery and great people, always enjoyed myself there!

    Except for dropping my Shovelhead there on a gravel road, running from the cops!

    I see it's that time of year again.

    Here's to pants on the wall. :)

    The HAMB has always had a way of sometimes tugging at my heartstrings... cuz we share stuff like this.
    But it's also always been a source of comfort... for the same reason.
