Subject: [MAR] Two Articles That May be of Interest
Date: Fri, 8 Oct 2010 13:33:02 +0000 (UTC)
Greetings to the Lists,
Whomever is interested I have posted links to "two" short articles at my blog site: http://navalmerchantshiparticles.blogspot.com/
The 1st article is titled: Requiem For A Hero I'm sure most of you remember or recall the era of the "Cold War".....yes, somewhat of an unusual time period....and it was at times referred to as the "Shot-Less" war..... Well one incident, amoung many,that I'm sure you'll recall ....and two icons of the incident...."USS Pueblo & Commander Pete Bucher".... So this article is somewhat of a refresher on what took place and how it all turned out.
Then below the above article is just a very short article....kind of a 'thumbnail if you will' on "Q-Ships"....
Now if any of you want the articles sent to you...that can be arranged as well...just send me your e-mail and I'll reply with the articles attached....
So....if the two above articles somewhat tickle you interest while your reaching for that half of a dougnut to dip in that luke warm half cup of coffee or tea.....you may wish to link up to them and give them a go....
I myself [well I'm never by myself ....Mr. [heavy on the mister part]...R.J.is around]...I'm going to prepare some "Morning Glory Texas size Muffins"....I figure it is the weekend...and if all the widow ladies don't go into hiding....I may be able to intice one or two over for a "muffin and a sip of wonderful white wine".... But I will not hold my breath on that idea...lololo
Hey...y'all enjoy and have a delightful weekend
I wish you well
