Tears On The Face of Superman
Posted by: Robert Jones

I attended a funeral for a fallen law enforcement officer recently and have been reflecting on it since. I wanted to say something eloquent but words seem to escape me.

In short there was a barricaded unresponsive escaped mental case armed with a shotgun. SWAT was called and had to try to get this guy out. One officer was fired on and killed and then the subject took his own life.

The pageantry of the funeral was amazing with honor guards performing…and afterwards the procession route was lined with people waving American Flags honoring the fallen hero and also honoring law enforcement and emergency services in general. Everyone was genuinely moved by the experience.

At the services...   (more)

I too have been to a very large funeral for a Police Officer when I was serving my time. I didn't know him personally, but I knew of him.

Howdy Ya'll !! From Randy's World
Posted by: Randy Edwards

I know I've been MIA for the last several weeks or months (memory clouded by age), but I'm still around. My new (single) way of living has opened all kinds of different avenues of adventure for me. I have managed to fill every minute of every hour or every day with some type of new type of activity. I thought about dating around and decided that that's not for me right now. It's nice to please me for a while instead of everyone else.

Many of my activities are done alone. I let my Dad know where I'm going, how long I plan to be gone and hit the road or nearby lake. I'm in for a camping/fishing/boating trip next weekend...   (more)

Posted by: Randy Edwards

I was checking on a couple of post that I made to do an update and noticed that Larry's avatar is not showing. Then I noticed that Larry's email address was the same as mine. I also had a hell of a time logging in.
