Memorial Day

MAY 25, 2011


I remember George M. Cohan and the songs he wrote.
Have you ever sang It's a grand old flag
or Over There?1917 Geo.M, Cohan











Well, here are the words so you can sing along.

Johnnie get your gun, get your gun,get your gun.
Take it on the run, on the run, on the run.
hear them calling you and me
every son of Liberty.
Hurry right away, no delay go today.
Over there, Over there,
Send the word, send the word over there.
That the YANK"S are coming, the yanks are coming,
There's drum drum druming everywhere

So Prepare, say a prayer, say a prayer,send the word,
send the word to beware.
We'll be over, we're coming over,
and we won't come back till it's over, OVER THERE.

I love this song, it makes me so proud of our Armed forces.
I want to join myself.

Waiting for James Cagney in Yankee Doodle to come on TV



It's nice to know the words,
this is a favorite too.


you're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
and foreever in PEACE may you wave.
You're the emblem of the land that I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Every heart beats true 'neath the red,white and blue
where there is never a boast or a brag,
keep your eye on the grand ole flag.

I jump up and down when they play this song.
I can't help it,it's in my blood.








































In Flander's field's
We cherish too, the Poppy red.
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
that blood of Hero's never dies.
Moina Michael






Gen. John Logan National Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic Observed Memorial DayMay 30 1868 after flowers were placed on all graves in Arlington Natl. Cemetery.













Hope you have a bright and sunny weekend.
I can't remember the weather being so crazy.


We are sending 2 Billion to Egypt for Aid.
How about Joplin Mo. Those poor people.



Have a nice Memorial Day, Welcome to Amerian Inflation.

136 th Preakness at Pimlico Maryland





Sunday
Dale Romans was the Trainer for Shackleford.Roman grew up in the racing business.



MY QUESTION, WHERE WAS CALVIN BOREL????


























Well, I saw this horse being pushed into the starting gate by 4 men
his neck was full of lathered foam, he as very fractious.
I thought he has used up all his energy. WRONG AGAIN..
We live and learn. I know he was close to the win at the derby,
but that didn't help in the past few Preakness races. This is such a fabulous sport. You just don't know anyone can win..





The owners of shackleford are Michael Lauffer and Bill Cubbedge

How about that? Shackleford
