  1. @Jim Schue and I had an excellent conversation about our family's military past. In this thread I'd like for our members to share their family lineage through their military service.
  2. Starting a new thread to discuss this topic. Please, give @Jim Schue information on Tulsa, Oklahoma here.
  3. I've never understood this in a high school environment.
  4. My father was in country '68 to '69 as well. He served in the Air Force in recon assignments out of De Nagn. All that I ever get out of him is that he would go out into the jungle to setup radio intercept stations along side with small combat units. He'll tell me that he lost a lot of good friends there. So i have no doubt he saw his fair share of the fight. I also have a great uncle Johnny who served under General Patton as a tank driver. Uncle Johnny personally met and had a conversation with General Eisenhower, the details of which I don't know. He was in Italy and later the Battle of the Bulge. My grandfather was in the Navy and drove the Higgins boats at the landings in Africa and Italy. He was home at the end of 1944. My great uncle James fought in the battle of Normandy as a medic. He was wounded in the neck from a gunshot and later came home thereafter. Thanks for sharing!!!
  5. Don't know what there is to do there but I like that you're taking your dad out there for that. Can you tell us anything about his service for the country? My father, just last year, attended a reunion that he hadn't been to since he had his release papers.
  6. Oh, yeah. Baywatch Carmen Electra before SJP at any time frame.
  7. Barry Larkin Big O Chris Carter (Middletown) Munoz Roger Staubach
  8. Ribs and corn on the cob currently smoking on the charcoal grill.
  9. A little baseball drills with the boys this morning. Moving stuff over to a storage unit. Smoking up 2 slabs of ribs, corn on the cob, and baking some potatoes. Might have a beer or 5 later
  10. Dang, this family must have really crossed paths with some really bad people. If I were a Rhoden of the remotest relations to any involved I'd be packing heat everywhere I went.
  11. I'm currently dealing with a squirrel or raccoon problem. Bird feeder is right off of the fence line and they'd have easy access to it. It'll only be a problem for another week or so as we're moving out of the house. But I wanted to see what others do to keep the smaller rodents from being a problem with the bird feeder.
  12. I'm going to move my timing up for these storms to like 5:45 to 6pm for the northern parts of NKY.
  13. Looks like there is a line of storms that has developed between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. Not real sure if they'll bring severe weather but the timing looks to be around 6:30 or 7pm for the NKY area. Looks like a lot of lightning in these storms. Didn't mean to undercut ya @nWo. Just wanted to bring some awareness to the possibility of severe weather across the area.
  14. I "powerfully" wanted to say something back but myself never being the one for confrontation I decided to not say anything. But it's things like what happened above that will keep umpires and volunteers from coming forward. Let your kids have fun and let the coaches coach and let the umpires call the game.
  15. So - I'm going to paint you a picture of what I experienced today. I help coach (wasn't going to coach but ended up doing so because I saw a need) on a coach pitch baseball team with age groups from 5-7 years old. I've pitched this entire time up until now and will continue to do so. On one particular day last week I was struggling with location on getting the ball over the plate. Each kid is allowed 5 pitches before having to hit off of the tee. One of our better players gets up on his third time (mind you - I pitch better to this kid because I don't have to throw "touch" pitches like most other kids). The young man won't swing - yet most of these pitches were "meatballs". The kid has to hit off of the tee for the second time in the game. So - I proceed to pick up the 5 baseballs that i pitched along the backstop. I start hearing some things from this players parent. "It's okay "player unnamed" it's not your fault that your coach can't get it over". Also one of the more distracting parts is she will yell swing and don't swing when the ball is in the air. Parents like this make it very uncomfortable. I wasn't even going to help but I'm a much better pitcher than any of the other coaches and stepped in after two weeks and being asked to do so. I just find it a bit egregious that I started hearing that. Like I said - my pitching location wasn't the best on this day but it wasn't terrible.
  16. I can't agree more. However maybe I am a "creature of the present". I still think LBJ is a great player and still possibly the greatest of all, but I can't help but to think that he knew he was outgunned. I love watching him play the game. I'll put him right up there in the conversation though. I don't think the NBA has seen a player like him (he's a football player and I think he'd dominate that game too). Just a true athlete if there ever was such a thing. He just bit off more than he could chew this year. His legacy in this game has still yet to be written. IMO, in the next year or two his legacy will or may upgrade him to the GOAT status because we'll see him elevate another team into contenders.
  17. I assume your talking about 471. There is no construction going on right now from the stretch of US 27 to the aquarium.
  18. I'm going to make a calculated guess. This piece of crap grew up playing video games. It's obvious to me - like in video games - there is no value in human life. Other than what i guess was his girlfriend. We just looked into the eyes of the devil.
