Hi all --

I KNOW I will regret this... Here is me making a visit to my office at the newspaper in a slightly "different" capacity than normal.

Maybe the Coptic Pope? Those robes have an Orthodox look to them.

Hi!

Certainly not Coptic!
I just was trying to save those poor sinners I work with, but gave up as a lost cause!

nice schnauzers, I grew up with two salt and pepper miniature schnauzers and can't wait to get another one

For fear of totally derailing this thread, I will post another pic of myself in this post to be on topic  Wink

So, my topical contribution, with dogs...

Oh how adorable, cute dogs too, so glad to see not a bomb strapped on any of you! Wink
Here are my four, yes, count them FOUR. . .we breed miniature schnauzers.  And not one of them has served in the military, although the silver one could, she can be so fiesty and a real bad a . . .
hum, maybe I should say tail. . .or to stay with the coin theme. . .a real bad reverse!

The black one is my male, Siggy, the Silver is Sophie, the salt and pepper is Sadie, she is the new mom to our new addition Suessee Seychelles.

Very interesting story about the dog being drafted!!!  I had never heard of that.

Mark F,

Two questions about your grandparents' dog.

Was that the US Army he was drafted into?

Did he recognize your grandparents upon his return after discharge?

I haven't posted an updated picture in awhile so I thought I'd share some.Other than my family and coins this is my true passion...and My job for the last 22 years.

Arrows point to yours truly

1.Shows a roof that me and my crew were trapped on after getting cut off from our ground ladder.
2.The improvised bridging ladder we used to get to an adjacent roof.
3.Me safely on the other side-tragically the bridging ladder tipped and dumped my 2 partners over 20 feet to the ground.
    They would spend several weeks in the hospital and it ended the career of one of them.
4.Setting up for roof operations and top side vent.
5.Getting off quickly after a top side vent.
6.Setting up the "Big Stick" at a house fire.
7.Drug houses burn HOT
8.Me and "the boys" They are a little rough around the edges, but than again, how many friends are willing to die for you.

Well, nearly as dangerous as this is Cologne Karneval. See this, taken a few weeks ago and, beware, the most recent pic of me I think.

Ha!  Me and my shadow!  How cute!  You are a beautiful lady! 

I just finished a production of As You Like It, set in the late 60's - early 70's.  The director equated Nixon to one of Dukes. . .Huh  They took the part of Adam, (97 year old servant) and made it Eva.  Another role with makeup that takes about 30 minutes to put on!

Curtis -- RE my grandparents dog (his name was Pal and he was a big airdale).

Yes, it was the US Army. Yes, he recognized them -- according to stories my grandmother told, he acted like a little puppy on his return. His behavior didn't change around members of the family. Apparently, though, he was somewhat defensive and stoic around strangers from that point on. My grandmother would laugh and say that he was "standing guard!".

I just called my mother and she has the packet of papers the Army gave my grandparents. I remember a tongue-in-cheek discharge paper, but that may be a faulty memory on my part. She isn't sure where it is, but she knows she has it. She's going to look for it and have my sister photocopy the materials and with then either mail them to me or fax them. I've wanted these for a while just because is is a good tale. If I get them before the Chicago coin show, I will bring them with me. Otherwise, I'll let you know when I get electronic copies and will email them to you, if you are interested.

Just curious, but why were you asking?

Thank you, they are very smart!  The only dog I have seen that talks!  If you have had them you understand what I mean!  I do love my pups!

Mark,

Thanks, just two questions that occurred to me on rereading your story. 

I had originally assumed that it might have been the British army and your grandparents were British, since Britain was in greater danger so might seem more likely to draft even housepets!

Ahem, uh, ArizonaRobin, like, uh, WOW! I know, I know, all men are pigs, but well, oink, oink!

Here's a photo of me from four years ago teaching a palm tree a lesson. It is still, and may always be, my favorite photo. Four years later I am greyer, somewhat thicker of body, but still filled with attitude.

This photo was taken in Jacksonville, FL after three of us (all amputees) just finished a cross-country bicycle ride (rode as a team, so each put in 40-60 miles a day). We began in Seattle and 57 days later hit the Atlantic ocean in Florida. Visited a bunch of rehap centers along the way, did serious sampling of BBQ in many states, and generally made fools of ourselves.

Go here if you want some chills, it's the final day's writeup of our journey (we kept a daily, online journal, sort of an early blog):  http://www.amputeesacrossamerica.org/aaa2003/journals/jul25.htm.

Enjoy,

Mark

Yeah thats was pretty much it Scipio,There were no exposures or life hazard.All the heavy lifting had been done in terms of stretching Big lines and securing a water supply.We were just waiting for the water to start flowing which began about 10 seconds after my partner snapped this picture.Oh and as far as the house goes, hey at least we saved the basement  Grin.

Mark F. clicked on your link -wow! what an incredible journey.I bet you have some amazing memories from this trip,I am truly impressed.(as to your picture--Ironic that you chose a palm tree)

You know as I look back through the archives of this thread seeing and reading about all the incredible people, their exploits and experiences not to mention the diversity of ages and culture. I think we can put to rest the notion of the ancient coin collector as a stodgy old curmudgeon ,holed up in his dusty ,poorly lit library, surrounded by Numismatic books and literature poring over his latest aquisitions.Although I am not sure about Curtislclay  Shocked  ......kidding,I'm kidding.So a toast to a really great group of fun and interesting people."Go out and Live."

In Bosnia a few years back.  1) Me as helicopter passenger.  2) The view (castle at Old Travnik north of Sarajevo) out the open door and between my feet.

I can't claim the heroics of some of you guys, and we thank you again for what you do.

I will say that it does take some courage to wear this shirt though! and not an insubstantial amount to manage 4 lively kids  Smiley (arizonarobin, if my daughters grow up as beautiful as yourself I would never manage to keep the local suitors away!)

And before you ask, the red face was a combination of fine wine and a Cuban sun, that whilst very pleasant, took my pale British skin some time to get used to.
