    This last weekend I found myself sharing a table in a restaurant with a man who served in Italy in WW2 as a part of the 92nd Infantry (aka Buffalo Soldiers). These brave and courageous souls were not recognized by our country for their service until 1997 (Medal of Honor finally bestowed by President Clinton). Look it up on the internet - very interesting. Anyway the gentleman I shared a table with - was extremely charming and humble. He casually mentioned a local newspaper article (San Francisco) that was written about him and his fellow soldiers. So I knew I was in the presence of an extraordinary human being - I just didn't know the magnitude...

    So my question is....
    WWTLT you were unknowingly in the presence of someone who had committed herioc deeds of great proportion?

    Last Christmas. My brother-in-law was among the first to try and help at ground zero on 9/11. He stayed there much of the first day, even though he knew no one that had perished, and regardless to the health effects of all that stuff in the air. Now he's fighting in Iraq. does that count?

    and yes, you are right. they are great men.

    WWTLT you had great fun making fun of others?

    Subtle reference. I almost didn't get that one.

    Answer: I don't give advice.

    When was the last time you had tea?

    WWTLT you just took a moment of your day to relax.

    Last weekend in the car. All TWENTY-TWO cuts off The Wiggles "Yummy Yummy" CD. What can I say, my son loves it.

    Now if you'll excuse me, the Union of Cool People want me to turn in my card.

    WWTLT you climbed a mountain?
