After reading this I know what you’re thinking … especially those of you who were looking for more Soldiers Angels and/or Blackfive references. Not to worry. The SA and V-IT toons will be back next week. And who knows? Maybe you’ll even get a cartoon version of some of the Soldiers Angels ladies next week. Not that anyone has asked to be made into a cartoon or anything. You might even see … gasp … an appearance by Major Z himself! You know how it is when a curmudgeon like me gets on a roll. Just call me Parkay.

What else is this crazy man up to???
Hi ALCON, I thought you might like to know about something else going on behind the scenes here at DBS central. There’s a combat photographer named Jim Spiri who I’m trying to help send over to Iraq/A-stan by painting a version of one of his photographs. He took a pic of some Marines on a roof top that I thought was rather striking. So I’m do a 3ft by 4ft version of it in acrylic to raffle off for fund raising. Heres a shot from the painting where I’ve started in monochromatic blue in order to work out the light/dark details: Yeah, that’s my arm you see on the right. My code diva has a few more pics. I’ll see if I can get her to put them up sometime soon so that you can see the progress as it occurs. As they say, “Stay tuned!”
