Another Fall Begins

Today is the anniversary of the hanging of Nathan Hale. This was mentioned here last year; and it may well be mentioned in the future. Our true heroes should never be forgotten.

Happy Autumnal Equinox, Vanilla!

My kid's grammar school was named after Nathan Hale. So, we have lots of old t-shirts with his name on them if you'd like one. ;)

For 19 years we lived in Connecticut and just a few miles from the Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry.

Lin-- Thanks. As for the t-shirt: though I would be proud to wear a Nathan Hale shirt, I have to say I have two very large dresser drawers full of pretty much worn out t's. So, no thanx.

Chuck-- Maybe we'll get to visit there someday.
