Time to invent binoculars.
Check out B.C. today.
And he made good use of his gavel!
It sounds fascinating. It’s nice that it was all passed on to someone who appreciates it. I have been lucky to have lived my whole life close to Boston where the Revolution started, and to have traveled as a child to Philadelphia and Washington DC. History has always been a favorite subject of mine. And by the way, I was a junior in high school in 1976, and it doesn’t seem WAY back to me!
Thanks for the memory. For the rest of you, look it up in your Funk and Wagnell’s!
Thanks for the salute to the USA and the best laugh I have had on GoComics today!
I was sixteen in 1975 and attended the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington with some friends who lived there. We got up very early to watch the skirmish on Lexington Green, then the parade. The featured speaker was President Ford. I remember 2 things. The first is that I could only see the top of his head as he spoke, and the second is the sight of Secret Service agents in trench coats stationed every ten feet along the road. Happy Fourth of July everyone!
Not in America. But when we picked up a rental car at Heathrow, my dad forgot to look right as we entered the roundabout. Fortunately, he remembered at the last moment and avoided colliding with the lorry.
Here come da judge! (An obscure reference that only people of a certain age, mostly Americans, will understand.) And Happy Fourth of July!
