To-May-To .... To-Maw-To. Red, Scarlet.

Thanks for the history lesson though.

BTW Hobe Sound, apologies for stealing your thread. However, I needed to provide some clarification and correction to J.T. regarding his posts.

Actually, first of all, this is a thread on a forum - not your blog. If you have something to contribute and discuss, then go for it. If you just want to post these photos over and over, get a blog.

I'm going to assume you're joking about the second part - correct me if I'm wrong.

Dick, thank you for responding in a professional manner to Hobe Sound's extremely unprofessional post. I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with numerous Army personnel throughout my military career, and I've never experienced from any of them the negativity that Hobe Sound displayed...not to my face, anyway.
I know we're all proud of our respective branch of military service, but Hobe's diatribe was more than a little overboard.

My Post was about the R.C.M.P. I have hated Marines all my Life! but that is not the Point! he had not reason to rant on the damn Jarheads!

I don't see where he jumped on anyone and don't see how he was a bully. Perhaps you're a little too sensitive?
I'm not a Marine but this is my playground...do you see where this is going?

Plus the most famous T.V. Mountie Richard Simmons SGT. Preston of the Yukon. 1955-59. I recall the show.
