It is Memorial Day. A day most people will be happy to not be at work, maybe go to a picnic. Sadly very few will remember the reason for it though. To remember those lost. Four of my uncles served in Nam, my Grandfather in WWII. On this day I’m thankful for those who served our Country and lost their lives; but I’m also thankful that my family members were able to return. While I have no doubt my Grandfather’s experiences eventually lead to his health problems, I’d like to briefly share the information I have about his time enlisted. This is from an 80th “Blue Ridge” Infantry division book I have.

I haven’t gone to Vegas. I didn’t even wander down to the reservations to hit the casino. Instead I’m spending all my time gambling in Thieves Landing and Chuparosa. Both are towns in the new game Red Dead Redemption a fantastic new game from Rockstar. Rockstar games are always full of mini-games but for some reason I’m hooked. I’ve never been a big poker player, but I’d say I’ve put in at least 3 hours into just poker alone. I had finally pulled myself away from the cards when I played my first game of Liar’s Dice.
So I realize that there is about to be an in-game revolution down in Mexico, but if you need me I’ll be over in the bar. I just want to play one more hand before going on.
After falling in love with them numerous Highland games ago, I've finally found a consistent source of beer from the Dunedin Brewery. Total Wine & More is like an alcohol superstore and I don't know why I just found out about it. Thanks to them I’ve got two 6 packs of Redhead Red Ale sitting in my fridge. Now if I can just get some Dropkick Erin Red…
