I was at home , packing to go to Hagerstown, Md. to begin work on "God & Generals"
It was a Tuesday I was to fly to Dulles on the 13th.

My wife called, from her office, " and I turn on the television  :(

I will never forget ....or the day JFK was shot in Dallas .... they were our generation's "Pearl Harbor"

I got to verk a little before 0800 central time. I didn't have to radio on the way there. Someone said there was sometime going on, so tried to get to cnn.com (this was when CNN reported the news) but couldn't. I plugged in  a TV that was in the conference room that was used infrequently. Soon after, I watched the plane hit the second tower.

We were working, preg testing and sorting off heifers for a out of state buyer.  On a big farm that ran parallel to the interstate.  About a hour due west of the pentagon. The Truck Drivers coming in to pick up the cattle kept us filled in.
Traffic east bound stopped except for emergency vehicles. Traffic west bound was lite. Military aircraft and helicopters traveled near and overhead. 
That evening I went stocked up on some rifle Ammo.

If I am not mistaken Pony Racer was near the Pentagon around the time the plane crashed there.

I was a kid when Kennedy was assasinated. Even more than 9/11 I recall the air raid drills as a small child in school. Not truly understanding the Cuban threat I remember being horrified by hearing the news mentioning Cuba or Castro. Just as I was with bin Ladin.

Always get the water for the coffee upstream from the herd.

I was at work in the Post Office, sorting mail. The carrier in the next case over from mine had a radio on, said "A plane just hit the World Trade Center."  No details, I just thought some lost Cessna driver hit a tall building, probably mostly bounced off. But the time the second one hit, we knew different. Didn't see video until after work.

Morning Coffee is up. Not sure why I am up so early but I am.
Biscuits are in the oven



The boss lady is farmers marketing again this morning. Her alarm went off at 4:45. She still asleep I am up.

I’ll feed the animals and turn them out again.  Then a movie. Not sure what yet.

Well,
We are about to head off to one of our favorite casino/restaurants to celebrate our 33 years of her putting up with me.  I always remember the date because the next Saturday is her birthday, so we will venture out again to the strange new world of trying to eat thru masks.  I remember her first birthday after our marriage was on a houseboat on Lake Meade.  No masks then!

Greetings all.

In Great Falls this weekend, giving uncle same my monthly dues. I’m that vein, my supervisor got himself I trouble with a 3 star general through me. We had a chemical attack drill, which required chemical gear. I missed the drill because I was at the dentist, so I had to do it by myself later on in the day. And while I was walking around in it, we had a visit from a general. I just happened to be on the flight line during their arrival: the only person on base in chem gear. Supervisor got to have a conversation regarding “hazing.” So that was exciting.

Congrats Russ, and happy birthday to the Mrs.
