The theme for this weeks HNT, as per the rules laid down by the High Exalted Ruler Os, is to post our favorite HNT post of 2008. This one is my favorite. I'm not sure if Lori would agree, but I'm certain she will like this one A LOT. You'll understand when you see it.

BTW, this post is from my old blog, so many of you have never seen it before.


Thursday May 7, 2008


Forty years ago this week I was drafted into the US Army.

Thirty Eight years ago this week I was discharge with the rank of Specialist E-5. Which ain't bad after just two years. Here's a picture of me right after I got out the hospital after being wounded.

Now after all these years here I am in one of my finer BTExpress moments. I'm happier than I've ever been and living life at it's fullest.

Happy HNT Y'all!


I also want to wish each and everyone a very Happy New Year. May 2009 be your bestest year ever.

Glad you didn't turn around. I'm not sure we could take the view...

I do appreciate the labeling of what's scar and what's not!

Have a great 2009!

lol, the labelling of that one made me laugh just as hard this time as the first time!

happy new year, my friend.

oh and word veri is "crato"...perhaps suggesting another name for the "not a scar?"
