    What a good looking guy in his new blanket. You really need to get him that chicken blanket, he'd be the talk of the stable, lol.

    @Blooie hope there's nothing seriously (costly) wrong with Tam's car. It's nice to have family close enough to come help out.

    @3goodeggs that must have been a scare with your DS. If it had to happen though, best for it to happen while he's at home with you & DH. I hope his recovery is swift.

    Have any of you seen that Spielberg/Hanks HBO series "Band of Brothers"? It was based on true stories of combat during WWII, in Europe. We have it on disc and it was so good.

    About a week ago we came across "The Pacific", a 10 part series also done by Spielberg & Hanks, this one following the Marines that were in the Pacific during WWII. Excellent production, again based on real events and people. What those guys went through is amazing. Seemed to me they had it much harder than the ones in the ETO (not that they had it easy).

    My dad was in the Pacific in the Navy at that time and it gave me a glimmer of some of what he must have seen and lived through. For anyone interested in history, I'd highly recommend both of these.

    We have watched Band of Brothers multiple times, I had forgotten about the other series The Pacific, thanks for reminding me.

    If you appreciated Band of Brothers, you'll like The Pacific OHLD. Let me know what you think after you have a chance to watch it.

    just ordered it off Amazon, my husband is very excited, I always enjoy anything Tom Hanks is involved in, The Burbs is one of my favorites, I've enjoyed him ever since Bosom Buddies.

    He seems like one of the classiest guys in Hollywood. Ditto on enjoying any of his projects. Did you ever see that old one of his "Money Pit"? Hilarious!
