I changed the words a bit...

To the tune of "These are a Few of my Favorite Things."


Rap music blaring from big bass drum speakers,
Kids paying hundreds of dollars for sneakers.
Nine year olds covered with tattoos and bling,
These are a few of my least favorite things.


... also, Get Off My Lawn!

The Journal of Constant Belcher: Belcher the Baris...


My friend Tim Abbott (1st NJ) writes a humor blog about his personal discovery of a diary by a Revolutionary War Soldier named "Constant Belcher."

The blog is similar to Peter Schickle's "discovery" of PDQ Bach's music. 

Tim begins with some true history to set the stage, then segues into Pvt Belcher and his humorous diary entries. 

Enjoy enjoy

8th Annual Revolutionary War encampment at the National Constitution Center


The 6th PA and other Revolutionary War reenactor units will be at the National Constitution Center from July 2nd to July 4th. We will be encamped on the front lawn of the NCC along Independence Mall.

We'll have exhibits and demonstrations of 18th Century tools and trades inside the lobby and outside on the grounds. Soldiers will march and drill, and they'll be Musket Drills for the children using wooden muskets.

The event is free. Fun (and history) for the entire family.

This happened this morning

 

I bought a breakfast sandwich. It was $3.25.
I handed the cashier three dollars and a quarter.
He rang it up and said, "Here's your nickel back."
We both made a face of disgust.

The Annual Battle of Monmouth reenactment will be held on June 16-17, 2018

 

Bring your family to Monmouth, NJ on Saturday or Sunday, June 16-17, 2018, and travel back in time to 1778.  Two armies will be preparing to do battle.  Continental Army soldiers retrained at Valley Forge are itching to show off their new skills, while a British-German-Loyalist Army hopes to crush the rebels and restore good government. 

 

Come early for a full day of living history.  The army encampments will welcome visitors beginning at 9 A.M.  Watch soldiers clean their muskets while their women prepare what may be their men's last meal.  Some officers may be drilling their men while others plan for the battle and yet others play cards.

Sally Ride Is Getting Her Own Forever Stamp

https://www.livescience.com/62634-sally-ride-forever-stamp.html


Long time NASA illustrator Paul Salmon painted the image used on the stamp. USPS spokesperson Mark Saunders told Live Science that he used a group photo of her first launch crew for inspiration. 


Ride's stamp pictures her smiling in her astronaut's jumpsuit, which reads "Sally K. Ride" in a patch on her left shoulder. Over that shoulder, the Space Shuttle Challenger lifts off into a blue sky.

: INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR MICHAEL DOOLING

 

Michael Dooling illustrated a children's book titled 'George Washington's Army and Me', which featured his drawings from the Battle of Monmouth. He's interviewed in the Journal of the American Revolution. 

Here's a quote from him that appears in the article:

" For the book 'George Washington's Army and Me', I enlisted the help of the 6th Pennsylvania Regiment: a living history organization, dedicated to presenting the lives of soldiers and camp-followers serving in the American Revolutionary War. This group proved to be a valuable resource in my research and is also serving as historical advisors on the film. Some of the members even modeled for my paintings."

A very short Short Story

 

 

Bedtime Story

"Careful, honey, it's loaded," he said, re-entering the bedroom.

"This for your wife?"

"No. Too chancy. I'm hiring a professional."

"How about me?"

He smirked. "Cute. But who would be dumb enough to hire a lady hit man."

She wet her lips, sighting along the barrel.

"Your wife."
