Night Owl Chat – The Longest Day

I’ve always been a World War II buff. So much so that whenever I would watch “The Longest Day”, my brother would tease me by making “pow pow” sounds. (No, he’s a great guy.)

In honor of that momentous day 70 years ago, the theme song from one of the greatest Normandy landing movies.

Chat on, night owls!

      You know, whenever I see the nature pictures with animals, I’m always happy I’m looking at them from the far away safety provided by my computer screen.

      Absolutely remarkable – The warm reception President Obama receives from the crowds is what earned respect sounds like – pay attention Tzar Vlad – behave like one and you may earn it too!!!!!

    Watching events today has brought fond childhood memories to the fore. The last year of the war, my father was stationed at Will Rogers Air Base. I remember going to the PX and listening to the jukebox and watching the GIs and WACs jitterbug. That was the greatest entertainment a five year old could enjoy. A couple of my favorite songs were “Don’t Fence Me In” “Don’t sit under the Apple tree.”.

      My aunt’s favorite song from that time was “White Cliffs of Dover.” The songs were amazing (as well as the films that helped get everybody through the war).
