That's for sure. I sure hope you had a good Thanksgiving at your home, Hermit. I spent mine up in Michigan with my older brother and his family. We got to spend some time in the woods with our guns and it was very nice.

HI PF, long time no see. Great quote.

If only we had entertainers these days that had as much class and character as some of the older ones. Not that the older ones are without fault by any stretch of the imagination.

He had a home rather near here....very nice, beautiful polo grounds in front of it...I guess California owns it now because it's open to the public. You feel close to him somehow when you're there....what a great quote

Polo grounds? Will Rogers? I guess I shouldn't sound surprised.

Fanfares for "common men" being all they were at the beginning of this thoroughly "modern" period in our history.

Another reason why my wife is on my facebook friends list. I've had people ask me why I have it that way. I couldn't think of having it any other way.
