It is now winter here in Hong Kong. Today is a bit on the gray side.
Fitting for Pearl Harbor Day .. The Chinese caught Holy Hell from the Japanese in WWII. A gray day is fitting.
On December 7th.. 1941.. I was five years old. Even at five years of age.. I KNEW something really big had come to pass on that .. Day of Infamy .. as I have heard it referred to .. Pearl Harbor Day.
I love to quote .. and I love to re-quote Meister Eckhart .. German Philosopher and Theologian .. who wrote the following ..
If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is Thank You it will be enough ..
In the United States Marine Corps.. they have quite a philosophy .. well they did in early 1958 when I went through Marine Corps Boot Camp ..
As a Marine.. I was taught that I was to fight.. and that I might lay down my very life .. for two (2) groups of people.
. Those who fought for ME when I was too young to fight for the country.. and
. Those who were at that time too young to fight for the country.. the children.
So to those who fought and to those who died when I was too young to fight .. I say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH .. I SALUTE YOU ALL ..
What a joy my life is today because of you all..
In the vein of .. ‘To hell with Political Correctness’ ..
I SALUTE PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN .. Drop it .. Drop another .. I served with men in the Marine Corps in the late 1950s who were there in the Hell that was the Pacific Islands during WWII.
Much MUCH LOVE to you HEROS .. Cap.. USMC Enlisted.. USN Commissioned Officer (Sea Bees) ..

Being a member of the HKAFL (Hong Kong American Football League) Alex Beriman the leader-of-the-pack keeps me posted on the ‘ DOINGS ‘ of the HKAFL.
“Cap we are going to watch the Seattle vs Minnesota game tonight. Do you want to join us?”
“Oh Yes Sir Mister Alex!”
So out and off went Patti and myself up to the SAINT a very trendy Sports Bar.
Are You Ready For Some Football .. It Is Now Game Time !
A tad blurry but you get the idea ..
The lights were turned down low during the game..
SEATTLE BROUGHT THEIR ‘A’ GAME ..
SEATTLE 38 – 7 MINNESOTA
We KNOW Gullible was tickled pink but .. Oh SHADDY were you happy with this game! Your Green Bay Packers are now back in first place in the NFC North Shaddy because of this loss by Minnesota.
It was a fun evening for Patti and I and for the other members of the HKAFL who sat with us.
Smiles .. Cap and Patti ..
