Me on my tricycle...lookit those metal wheel spokes. In Fort Worth. After my three uncles came home to visit after The War, my parents found me outside, riding up and down the street, saying loudly "G-D," "G-D" over and over--(not the initials), but what I'd heard the two Army and one Navy vet saying often. Great training to be a journalist!
