Folks, I'm sorry to say, but I'm done here.

Everyone, whom I've interacted with, those I agree and those I disagree with, have a great life and keep up the good fight.
I'm sick and tired of having to be careful of what I post and wonder if....................... so bye.
I'll check out DU every now and then, but until things cool off a bit, I won't be posting anymore, at least for 3 months, for obvious reasons.
Take care all, I'm just going to keep on truckin down the road and enjoying the beauty of our country.

Just received a call from the Peterbilt dealership that my truck is ready for pickup this afternoon.
Finally, I can get back on the road and make some money.
I won't be posting as much anymore, just early mornings and after I park for the nights.
Everyone, those I agree and disagree with, y'all have a great week and I'll see you on the flip side.
Peace out everyone.

The other day my grand daughter asked me,

Grandpa, what was it like to fight in the Vietnam war, the question floored me as I had no answer for her other than it was horrible.
Are there any other Vietnam vets here who experienced the same questions about our war time experiences?
I would love to hear their answers if not too painful.
Peace out

Found this gem of Prince live, Purple Rain.

I always liked the official version, but, IMHO, this live version out classes it
