I never got the whole bathroom reading thing. The toilet isn't a comfortable chair. My mission is to get in and get out. Hanging out doesn't make sense to me. I'm 53 so I don't think it's just a matter of understanding when I'm older.

You must not have small children in the house. Itís the only quiet time I get to myself.

I've read Storm over Iraq.  Agreed, it is quite good.  I gave my copy to Mirth a few years ago.

Mine would laugh at me for saying, "Mess-er Shits". Then tell Grandma I said a bad word. That's why I keep a secret stash of Snickers for bribery purposes.  ^-^

Old skit about foreign pilots in the Battle of Britain:

BBC announcer,  "we will remind our audience that Focke, of course refers to the Focke Wulf 190."

Polish pilot, "Dem Fockes were Messerschmidts!"
