Slinks

Ah, Sunday. The last relaxation filled day of the weekend. Things to do, places to go, games to watch and a time for mind clearing. The mind clearing process frees up space for more interesting and entertaining content such as what we have here every Sunday at just the time you sit down at your computer or turn on your mobile device. We’re here for you. Got any beer left?

    I could never get my father to talk about D-Day. He didn’t say much more about the Bulge, just, “Something blew up, and I was in the way.” That’s about all I knew about the Purple Heart.

    He liked to talk about capturing Hitler, though.

    Same with my wife’s dad who was in combat and received a Purple Heart. The war was a subject not to be discussed.
