Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Fine photos.

You will miss him more and more as time goes by, what happens is the saddness turns to smiles as the years go by.

When us kids now speak of my father the tears are gone and the laughter seems to go on forever.

It's a great feeling just thinking of my dad.

Nice tribute, may he rest in peace.

God bless those young people serving in the USAF Honor Guard. They had the opportunity to push the casket on its wheeled platform. They elected to hand carry my father instead.

BZ, a salute to your father, and also to you. I told you your pictures would be great, and they are. Your father watches over you now, but then, he always has. Fond memories will overpower the grief as time passes. Meanwhile, know that you are in our hearts and prayers.

Lovely tribute. It is strange to say that I have enjoyed your sharing of your experience (makes me sound like a ghoul) But I have enjoyed it and felt honored that you shared it with us all.
