On May 26, 1966 the nation of Guyana declared its independence from the UK. Up to north the favorite son of Guyana was born on the second day of the Jewish holiday of Shavout. In a pattern that was to last a lifetime he was typically early. By the time his father had parked the car the whole drama was over. May 26 is also the birthday of John Wayne and James Arness.
The connection with Guyana is a profound matter. It is a wonderful land, spoiled by corrupt Marxist incompetents. The jungles are a fascinating place beautiful and deadly at the same time. The most deadly animal in Guyana is the local populace, but that can be said about most places.
I am spending time with my parents. I am blessed to have them into their eighties. As much as I love my parents being a father and grandfather are even better. I miss the Cherkie kid who will be back soon. I was with the daughter and we watched Kelly's Heroes. She found the box of Almond Joy in one of the scenes. I am wondering when is the last time I even saw one in a store.
My ten year anniversary as an officer is June 4. The blog preceded my appointment. I would like to say I have grown or perhaps the political just seems a bore after a while.
Happy Birthday Duke and Sherrif Dillon
Happy Birthday to Guyana
