No Roger, that is not it.PJM
Well, that was my best guess.Did you finally gets some rain?
We got a sprinkle, but that is about it.PJM
Fred Collingsworth, inventor of the Clay Pigeon.
Johnny, that is funny, but is not going to be a winner.PJM
I really have no good guess but Dick Cheney???
Another funny but not correct guessPJM
Still with the music theme I see. This is John Philip Sousa.
Nate,Ah you got it. This is so out of context for J. P. Sousa I thought maybe I could slip it by you.Yes, this is going to be John Philip Sousa week. All Sousa, All week long.PJM
Only out of context if you don't know Sousa, an avid lifelong hunter and Leatherneck.
This man knows his Sousa!
Good job, Nate!Sousa week, awesome. We'll be able to recover from the miserable opera week (well, some of us).
Nate, You are a machine my friend. Absolutley remarkable!
If you posted a picture of my own mother I'll bet Nate would guess it before I did.
Good job Nate
I didn't recognize him out of uniform. John Philip Sousa is a hometown hero around here. His home is a registered national landmark. The town features the Sousa Band Shell for outdoor music events. My daughter went to John Philips Sousa elementary school. The Cow Neck Historical Society has a mannequin wearing one of his uniforms (dark blue). Yes I tried on his hat (the caretaker said it's OK and I couldn't resist). It was too small for my size 7 3/8 mellon. John
Joe, Dave, RTD, thanks for the encouraging words! I'm looking forward to a stirring week here on OPOD.
I've said it before and I'll say it again; that youngster Nate Maas is one sharp fellow!!I am willing to bet that his parents took the time to raise him right!!!
That is Teddy Roosavelt!!!!!!!!
@ Dave 107: LIKE (and me too! Nate would guess my mother before me! lol)
