  1. THAT'S IT! Even the same color. Thanks, and just about the time I was going to go through a dozen or so Miss Marple Mysteries, too. Thanks, Bob.
  2. Nom picture. I just caught it on a Brit movie. Tatra looks close but exactly right. Too "bulky", "pudgy" looking, not big enough, doors aren't right, grill isn't big enough nor ornate enough, no turn signals. Three piece windshield isn't even close.
  3. Semper fi, Santa...and a merry Christmas to you.......and everyone else! P. S. Please give Mrs. Clause a hug from me.
  4. There'a a "horses ass syndrome"? I had a VA doctor in California suggested that for me. I didn't know it was already taken.

  6. Where did Santa find those Spitfires that still run?
  7. Well, at least we don't dress funny, DUDE! And the last guy who called me a colonial with snide tone to his voice got a bunch of dental work done shortly afterward.
  8. My parents both told me never stop learning. I don't have all the degrees you have earned but I still gathered up some fairly impressive credentials before I folded my tent and became civilized, I retired at 56 and never looked back. You done good, old son.
  9. I have a 50/50 mix of apple juice and orange juice almost every morning. Other times I have V-8 with tabasco, garlic, horse radish, and Worcestershire sauce and a reasonable dose of salt and pepper. That will kill the demons in your gut and start your day off right.....or send you into convulsions.
  10. Four door sedan, probably British, ca 1950ish. Rear are "suicide" doors, blade-type mechanical turn signals in door post between front and rear doors. Three headlights, two faired into the front fenders slightly toward the center, third faired into the center of the grill and maybe four inches lower the the other two. The center light doesn't appear to move with the steering wheel as some did about that time. Looks like a medium size car, maybe the size of a 1940-1950 ford. Interesting beasty, but I can't identify it. What;s your call?
  11. Hands down , Donovan's Reef. A distant second is An American Christmas Carol. Fonzy (Henry Winkler) really shines.
  12. Yet another wonderful war movie, this one about the liberation of Cabanatuan POW camp in the Philipines. The action all takes place ove five days (January 27 to 31, 1945 by About 100 Army Rangers from the 6th Ranger Battalion, some 200 Filipino guerrillas and scouts and a few others which ended in an attack on the camp and freeing 211 POWS. one who died after being liberated. The Battalion Surgeon was also killed, but only two Rangers and 21 Guerrillas were fatally injured. 550 to 1000 Japanese were killed The movie starring Benjamin Bratt, James Francisco, and Connie Nielson was made in 2004 and claims to be a fairly accurate depiction of what is thought to be the most successful rescue raid in US military history. It's tear jerker and has a lot of scenes that will your anger nodule working over time.
  13. OMYGAWD!! What's next? Will hey be playing dangerous games with guns?
  14. Good. It was way to good to deserve one anyway!
  15. I knee an old Englishman who never quite adapted to the new monetary system. He had aa relative visit him from his old hometown and were discussing a purchase of some kind. I was sort of listening when I heard him ask "What is that in old money?"

  17. I found a copy at the local library...or one of its local system mates
  18. I never thought much of Rick (Ricky) Schroder as an actor. To be honest I never thought much of him at all. I just finished watching about 100 minutes of the A&E original "The Los Battalion" movie, a great story about the Argonne battle during the final days of WWI. It's based on actual event, is filmed in a black and white hued color, is nearly perfectly filmed and produced, and has a number of weapons that I have never before seen on the screen, such as the French Chauchat light machine gun and Hotchkiss machine guns, and U. S. 1917 Remington- Enfield rifles. The acting is way above par for war movies and has proven to me a long held belief the the Academy Awards are basically a list of things I don't want to watch. I didn't recognize any actor except Mr. Schroder. I'm not much for apologies but feel like, even though doesn't know me, I owe him one. This is far above and beyond most war movies. Thanks, Mr. Schroder, for a very enlightening and entertaining afternoon.
