Thanks Sarge! You know, Lu and I have that very print in the living room. It's always been my favorite.
I love Norman Rockwell. Just about everything he painted reminds me, in some way, of my childhood. And I had a great childhood.Oh yeah, your post was brilliant. Gave me lots to think about.Some days blogging is easy. Just link to someone who's good at it. Thanks Six!
OT, but... what am I doin' on yer sidebar? And what do the characters mean?
Well, I was wondering when you were going to notice that. I consider you to be "The Master", the Japanese characters indicate that you are "Sensei" Buck.From (of course) Wikipedia:Sensei is a Japanese word that is literally translated as "person born before another". In general usage, it means "master" or "teacher", and the word is used as a title to refer to or address teachers, professors, professionals such as lawyers, CPA and doctors, politicians, clergymen, and other figures of authority. The word is also used to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in an art form or some other skill: accomplished puppeteers, novelists, musicians, and artists for example are addressed in this way.In your case for sensei I mean "to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in an art form or some other skill". Yes, I consider blogging to be an art form / skill, in which I feel you are the "Master" - compared to my humble self.It is meant as a compliment, if it offends, I will remove it. With an obligatory "Sumimasen Pennington-San".
Thanks for the ticket to that destination, Sarge. Well worth the trip! You know, from our correspondence, that I wholeheartedly agree.
Not a problem my friend. Ya know maybe it's that whole "great minds think alike" thing.
