It was much better than a $500 dinner
When Capt. Gary and First Sergeant Goldy took a break from Gettysburg Eddie’s and walked out into Steinwehr Avenue, we were greeted by a cascade of aerial explosions maybe half a mile away. I will not try to describe it for you, although I know people who think they have sufficient talent and would try.
You can’t say this has been straightened out
Let us return to Goldy’s Rule 106, which was part of our discussion a few weeks ago:
It referred to a piece of road design that thousands of other motorists and I had to navigate on a daily basis.
Hello there, cousin; just who are you?
I keep meeting relatives I didn’t know I had.
The latest one, I didn’t recognize, but he apparently had seen my picture and knew who I was.
You ever tried to cut one of these in half?
There’s a common saying you probably have heard in one version or another (and they usually are unprintable, so I will let you fill in the blanks):
Here’s a good way to spend the afternoon
My thoughts as I wrote my name on the raffle ticket were these: “I’ll probably win this, because I have absolutely no use for it.”
They said they would call if they needed him
“He loved America,” said his sister.
Yes, I replied, he did. As much as anyone I’ve ever known ... and a small, but significant, segment of America loved him in return. I know, because I was part of it.
Nobody ever found that sub or the gold
The old saying, “Never give a sucker an even break,” is attributed to W.C. Fields.
These are some of the spirits who haunt it
Old high schools aren’t like old battleships: You can’t tow them into a harbor, give them a coat of paint and hand them over to somebody for use as a museum.
It is time for another edition of Goldy’s Rules.
They include Rules I recently thought up or heard about, plus some I have long abided by and only now remembered.
Guess which team these guys play for
We returned to Gettysburg for our buddy Bill’s Old Time Base Ball Tournament, which is played under 1864 rules by guys in uniforms that are period-correct.
