On a lighter note, with boats!
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Sunday, May 24, 2020 10:17 AM

I went to the Veterans memorial:

            At Fort Sam Houston then had my quiet time with my Brothers in arms who gave it all.  I got home to New Braunfels and went to our great Landa Park. Such a beautiful day. Sun, Gentle Breezes and folks walking either their Dogs or Children or both.

        Did ya ever notice, ya never see anyone walking their Cat? Strange that. Well, anyway I wandered toward the wading pool right near the stream. Lo and Behold just as I got there a Texaco Tanker went sailing by. Along with a little Tug and  a Patrol Boat, ( well if you want to call it that)

   The children chasing them were oblivious to anything else, believe me. Keeping the proper social distance I was able to converse with the Dad. He's home on leave and thought this would be a good first day back!

      OOPS ! the Tanker started taking on water and Dad had to rescue it. It had no Masts, the Stack was missing, but to those kids it was beautiful. I wonder how many Generations have played with that ship? Definitely, happier memories popped up then. Watching those children brought All the Good Memories back. Get some yourself ,Okay?
