You think this rotts,, try sitting down and writing the lords prayer,, now that rotts! Not on here, on paper with a pen not a pencil.

At the number of people even here that don't know the words! Twas so proudly we hailed? Where'd that come from!

Here are the correct words to the Star Spangled Banner:

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight'
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen, thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream;
'Tis the star-spangled banner: oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand,
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that has made and preserved us as a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust";
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Mighta been a slight mis-spelling of bomms - when you wonder if something will fly, give er a sling i say! They say if it lands on your head it loves you! According to that, an owl, a bat, several miscellaneous bees and a zillion mosquitoes have tried to love me - i play hard to get :)

Misspent youth...Gotta remember I was in Highschool in the 70's...

Never said I was a saint...

But I am coming around...

Wife and kids do that to you...

Sure wish I had known about old tractors back then...

No, you are not. There's just not many of us who will admit it. ;)

Heck...    Posted 07-17-2003 at 07:39:21       [Reply]  [No Email]
No use in me denying it...Wouldn't gain me anything, and I hope it doesn't make anyone feel badly towards me...

Hi...My name is Salmoneye...And I used to be a jerk...

First Step in a twelve step program...Admitting it...

All I can do is try and be a better person today and in the future...

Just the part I spent with my ex-husband, and that was more like charity :)
