Salute to a Patriot

Today I want to give a shout-out to the one and only Trickish Knave, on the occasion of his retirement from the U.S. Navy.

"TK," as I affectionately call him, has been hanging around my blog longer than anyone except my mother. (Hey, mom!) Despite our differences (he supports the War on Terror, I support Reality), we have more common ground than you might think. For example, we can agree on...umm...ermm...well, we agree on what day of the week it is, apple pie is delicious, horses have four legs, and Thomas Jefferson is dead. See all that common ground? (I think we both also enjoy Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" video, but for different reasons.)

Seriously, though, I want to extend my congratulations to TK on this momentous day. I have nothing but respect and admiration for the fine people who volunteer to put their lives on the line to defend this great nation. I mean that. TK: thank you for your service. I wish you and your family always and only the very best. Best of luck to you as you embark on this new chapter in your life.

PS: Obama '08.

TK: Thank you.

Hear, hear!

(A more sensible comment than my previous incoherent babble.)

Congrats, TK.

I liked your incoherent babble, DJ.

Meh...Is better if I neither blog nor comment on blogs when drunk. The "I love you, maaannnnn" factor just gets a little absurd.

Andy said...

Then when will you blog?

Oh, you... ;-)
