Happy Veterans Day

Veterans Day.  When we honor those who have fought for our country.  Here we remember our own Sr. Doots.  I miss him.

The image is of Piestewa Peak, (2,610 feet), the second highest peak in the Phoenix Mountains.  Named after Lori Ann Piestewa, a Hopi, was the first Native American woman to die in combat.  She was the first woman killed in the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

  1. You redeemed yourself, dnd. No more photos of Republicans, please. None. (Does not apply to Ike, Teddy Roosevelt, or even Mark Hatfield.)

    Happy Veteran’s Day, and will keep Doots and Lori in my thoughts (thanks).

    Did not watch last night’s GOP shitshow debate. None of them are worthy to be commander in chief.

      Well that’s five minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. Moderators didn’t fact check. Salivated over candidates. RNC praised moderators. That’s all you need to know.

      It’s going to be funny to see the list of fact checks that come out of this debate.

  2. Come on dog, who doesn’t look forward to seeing a picture of Henry Kissinger?

    I watched. Dr. Carson is still creepy – perhaps creepier? I don’t think Jeb can do it. Carli is a witch. Kashish is pushy. Rand is interesting. Trump is Trump. Rubio is gaining, but a True Hawk. Ted is running for the #1 creepy spot.

    Thanks for the picture of Piestewa Peak. It’s a very beautiful mountain, right in the heart of the Phoenix area. It has an interesting background story. It used to be called “Squaw Peak.” When Janet Nap was gov, she changed the name to honor Lori Ann, and also to get rid of “squaw” that was offensive to Native Americans. I’ve never climbed it but it is very popular in Phx. Almost daily in the summer, the fire department is called to rescue someone ( Also from Camelback Mt.) because they didn’t take enough water.

  4. I didn’t watch, I had some minor surgery done last week, I popped a percoset and went to bed!

    Brian. Enjoy the percocet – hope you’re feeling better.

    Thanks for the Doots videos. Miss him.

    Utah judge reverses child being removed from lesbian parents.

  7. Horrible evening in Paris, heart breaking.

    The world really sucks at times.

  9. Hello buds. Very sad about the tragedy in Paris. With them, because what happened to them could really happen anywhere. Don’t ever give up on going out in public, though. The French are tough. They’ll get past this.

    Look forward to tonight’s Dem debate.

  10. I suspect the events in Paris will play to Hillary’s advantage at tonight’s debate?
