You do have an interesting life. :)
If your life ain't interesting... ya gotta do something to make it interesting! (* CHUCKLE *)
My father was in the Air Force stationed in Bitburg, Germany right after the war. He met my mother at a restaurant right across the street from the air base. Married her and brought her home.
I was in the Navy stationed in Yokosuka, Japan quite a while after the war. Met my wife here in Japan and just decided to stay here.
If you trace my ancestry, 5 generations ago, my grandmother's grandmother was a Cherokee Indian and I have black and white pictures of her. So I know I'm much more American Indian that Elizabeth Warren! How do you get a DNA to test how American Indian you are? I'd love to find out just how much American Indian I am so I can rub it in Elizabeth's face!!! (* CHUCKLE *) But I never claimed Indian heritage to get me into anything.
And if you go back 7 generations, I have a Scottish Coat of Arms along with Kilt coloring as well. My first American decedents came from Scottland to South Carolina.
And if you trace my mother's parents, my grandmother was from Belgium and my grandfather was from Luxembourg. After the war, the immigrated to Germany and gained German citizenship. And my mother finally gained American citizenship after she moved to the US.
So I guess I'm just keeping up with my ancestry and passing my genes on to another civilization!
Per the Democrats, I'm a Scottish-Belgian-Luxembourg-German-American Indian-American.
But per me... I never liked that hyphenated crap and thus only consider myself a patriotic American... unhyphenated!!!
And probably more patriotic than most of them on Capitol Hill today!
