rounds of the karaoke clubs .. tend to wander and see where end up at rather than set an itinerary ..

Have a Great Time and tell your Family Hello for us,,, the wife is asleep as you might guess I'm looking at pictures of long dead friends from a life
I lived so many years ago.
I know you still have them as I do, they come back to visit us and we reach out to help them or try and save them but it's the same.
Anyway, we're here and someday we'll be with our old comrades in arms again.
Do you remember,,,,

THE OLD AUSSIE DIGGER
For you and all the Aussie's I came to respect and call friend and brother.
Please understand, you and your countrymen have my utmost respect and I miss them those Brave, Crazy Bastards too.
They were my friend's and brother's and I knew them for just a short time, and now I'm tearing up like a baby, but that's OK, it's all about respect
and caring and LOVE!
I hope you get to listen to this song and know I posted it with the Greatest of Respect. Mr. G.
I wanted to add, this next video because I don't know if the younger people know or not, but the Brave Aussie Soldier has been in the Fight with us
every time. Much like the Canadian's, I have to admit, I only met two Canadian nurse's and a Canadian Doctor in Nam at the 8th Field Hospital in Nha
Canadian's in Vietnam, here is a Video, Like I said, I didn't know of any I served with, But, If I did, Thank You!
ETA: It's going to be a Long Night Again, I need to go and wipe the tears from my Old Eye's, I need another Rum & Coke or 7&7 and rearrange some old
photos of mine.
My wife say's we need another trip to the Wall and show our Respect.
My Wife, God Love Her, This Old Chinese Woman, Understands Me Better Than My own Mother Ever Could Have.
For My Friends Here,,, Remember,,Always!!!
We'll see each other someday, even though we've never met, we have a common bond, we've face death and watch our brother's die, we'll know each other
and give each other Hug's and we'll all always be Brother's, even our enemies.
Gotta Go,,, the wife is taking over from here.
