Subject: Haven't posted anything on here for a very VERY long time , and I figured that Thanksgiving would be a great time to drop by and say hey .............

My Wife , and I were talking about all the things that we have to be Thankful for , and on my list of things to Thankful for are GL , and this MB . So SHARP SALUTE to you Sir !!!! I might not of posted anything in a very long time but I stop by on a regular basis to see what's going on . Hogie's mastery of Dioramas , figure posing , etc. just keeps getting better , and better . And a lot of the other Troops aren't that far behind him .

I've been reworking a lot of my old stuff , and coming up with new uses for old parts . I completely redid my tractor trailer rig , and my trailer is now over four feet long . I'm going to post some pics as soon as I can of it , and of the figures that I've redone .

Some of the other things that I'm Thankful for is living in this country of ours , she's not perfect , but she's helluva lot better than a lot of countries out there . My Wife , who's been my Rock through some damn hard time , my late Mother , who never gave up on me . And you guys .

I got into this Hobby of ours by accident literally , after a rollover accident with a backhoe left me hanging for a total of eight months recovery and two years before that waiting for proper medical treatment . It was a work related injury and work-mans comp wouldn't authorize the MRI,s and other treatment that I needed . If it wasn't for coming across the Joes and later the SAM's I would have no joke lost my mind .

I'm also Thankful , and grateful that our 1:1 G I Joes , and Janes have always been there for us . Always remember that EVERY day is Veterans Day , not just November 11th .

Speaking of that date My Families only for real War Hero was KIA three days after the Armistice was signed . He had been in France from 1914 onward first with the RED CROSS , and then he joined the US ARMY when we got involved . He was a Combat Medic who was killed by a German shell barrage along with his buddy , and the German Soldier that they were taking to an AID STATION . He bought his " Farm " three days after the Armistice was signed . He was KIA on November the 14th , 1918 .

There's an old Indian saying that as long as somebody remembers your name you never truly die . So this SHARP SALUTE is for you Great Uncle William . May you always be remembered for your courage , and for making the ultimate sacrifice .

And a SHARP SALUTE to you all as well !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
