Old Patriot's Pen

Personal pontifications of an old geezer born 200 years too late.

I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Junk email.


Seventy-five percent or more of my email is SPAM that gets by my SPAM filter. A lot of it comes from spam-bots digging email addresses from this and other websites where my email address is posted. This is a bleg - please stop.

I'm 60+ years old, physically disabled with a bad back and other problems, and don't need a job. I'm not looking to "strike it rich", and I don't play the lottery (If you don't play, you can't win, so all that crap about I've won this or that is just bunk). I retired from the Air Force after 26 years' service. That means I have the best socialized medicine in the United States, that my prescriptions cost me either nothing or a very small co-pay, and I don't need to "shop in Canada" for them.

I've been happily married to the same woman for 42 years, and don't need a date, dating service, or "horny girls" from ANYWHERE. I'm perfectly capable of having sex as often as I can physically perform, and don't need Viagra or drugs for "erectile disfunction". I have a separate, unpublished email address for Paypal, Yahoo, my bank account, and anything else I do on the Internet, and it's SECURE through a very nice security system. I don't sell anything on eBay, and only buy from a half-dozen dealers whom I know well and are happy with.

I've been working with computers since 1966, and am Internet-savvy enough to not fall for any of the Nigerian scams or their derivatives. If you want to send me money, make it a check payable to me: my mailing address can be found on my website. If you're someone who has a legitimate reason to get in touch with me, make sure you list it in the "Subject" line of your email, otherwise I'll delete it.

For the rest of you, just STOP.

Hey there! Hope I’m not bothering you, and if I am…just hit that delete button :) I don’t mean to spam you, which is kind of what I’m doing but I mean no harm! My friend has launched a site called honoring our country’s military. Its basically a community for anyone related to or in the military and in it she sells Dog Tags (Personalized) for a great cause. 15% of all the sales goes to Soldier’s Angels charity which helps the families of people in the military or injured soldiers that come back.

Not trying to convince you to buy anything…BUT if you do have a free minute to take a look at the site and find that you like it...I was hoping and going out on a limb here to ask if you could perhaps place a link somewhere on your site or make some minor mention anywhere, it would be such a great help! Of course, in return I'll have your link added to the site as well. Also, Soldier’s Angels will be releasing a press release about AFaithfulSoldier, so it would be great to get as many supporters for this great cause as possible! Let me know your thoughts if you have any on the matter, and again, if I bothered you, I apologize!!! I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for a good cause. You have a great site btw, keep up the great work!

Site link:

Description: AFaithfulSoldier honors everyone in the US military all around the world. We sell personalized Dog tags, of which 15% of all proceeds goes to a notable charity- Soldier’s Angels ( which helps injured soldiers or families of those that lost their lives in the military.

Take care ;)
