Were you in the San Antonio Symphony in 1990-91?

Well done.  Down-to-earth practical advice and a tone to aspire to.

My hat, it has three corners;
Three corners has my hat.
And had it not three corners,
Then it wouldn't be my hat...

One great spotting point was the roof of Building 26 (The Gray Ghost) on board Naval Regional Medical Center San Diego.  We used to joke that if the planes had one more coat of paint, they wouldn't have made it.

Damn -- we had those plastic frogmen from the cereal boxes, too!  I knew 2 former UDTs.  Tony Flatt and Bill Shann.  Statistically, I shouldn't have met two.  Bill taught me to dive at Laguna Beach, CA

Your headline says that the dog said "Don't shoot" twice.  
JONES COUNTY, GA -- A woman says that her ten-month old puppy was shot in the head after asking officers not to shoot it -- twice.

...and the dog asked not to be shot after it was shot.

San Diego guy.  Me -- Taylor's beginnings in Lemon Grove, and the Great American Music Company in El Cajon.  Long time ago.  I drooled over these all the time I lived there and went to school.  A couple of schools later, I bought my first Taylor.  Great instruments.  I'm a long way from San Diego now, but I can pick up one of my Taylors and go right back...

A friend from work sings this at our Church.  I recently learned that she sang it at the funeral of her own brother, who was died tragically and too young in an automobile accident.  I asked her how she could do that.  She said she knew she couldn't cry and sing at the same time, so put everything she had into keeping composed to sing it.  She clasped her hands behind her back, and someone held her hands and she got through the song.  As she finished the last note, she turned to thank the person who had supported and encouraged her during this difficult time.

There was nobody there.

I cannot get through this song with dry eyes -- couldn't even before she told me that, and now I never will.

Isn't that the Coronado Bay Bridge in the background?  There was a huge yellow ribbon on that at the end of Desert Storm.  A hotel in San Antonio had the balcony lights colored to match the Stars and Stripes.  This is the worst reception for veterans I've seen since outside Travis AFB in the sixties.
