Antagonish – please go away!

I was watching a British detective story yesterday when the detective quoted a couple of lines of Rhyme that intrigued me.
But, for hours after that, and even into my sleep that night, the words kept running around in my head,
and now I wish they would go away (sic)!

Anyway, here’s a copy of the poem by William Hughes Mearns;

Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!

Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away.

by William Hughes Mearns (1899)

America’s Hunters and National Security?



A friend of mine sent this information to me last year, so I don’t know the original source, but it is interesting enough for me to share with you.

Now, before you go any further, please understand that; I am not advocating anyone going out and buying a gun, and I am definitely not advocating any kind of gun controls.

I am just sharing this with you, my readers as a tiny little reason why any nation that thinks they can invade our country with impunity will always have second thoughts.

Would such a ridiculous thing ever happen? Probably not, right? Look at the Russian/Ukraine situation, my friends, and then think again!

So, here we go:  Continue reading “America’s Hunters and National Security?”

General Robert E Lee

Robert E Lee on the Civil War:

[W]e made a great mistake in the beginning of our struggle, and I fear, in spite of all we can do, it will prove to be a fatal mistake.

We appointed all our worst generals to command our armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers
