DOIN' THE TIME WARP......
The continuing adventures of a living historian, retired cop, gun crank, hard core patriot and lover of life and country who doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up.
First of all, I am a unabashed patriot and love and cherish this great country that we live in. I try to honor the men and women who's sacrifices have made all this possible. I also consider myself a "renaissance" man in that I have varied and multiple interest. Depending on my mood, the time and place, I do my level best to explore these interest to the fullest.
While some may think me disorganized, I am just multitasking.
Specialization is for insects!!!!
In 1797... The U.S.S. Constitution (Also know as Old Ironsides) was launched. This ship, one of six, was built to help the fledgling U.S. Navy to both protect America's interest and to project force worldwide. She received her nickname when in an engagement with the British, cannonballs bounced off of the heavy oak timbers she was made of.
