Still no stamps.
the letter, the synopsis and the first three chapters lie before me like lost children waiting to be picked up by mamma and mamma ain't got the busfare...
Whatever, Frank Delaney's coming on. It's back to me to deliver the goods again so I'm going to fill in a bit about Frank's past and his struggle for recognition as an escaped POW. Something along the same lines as what Bobby Garwood went through on his return to the good ol' US of A.
Check out Garwood on Google, it's quite an eye opener how he was subjected to a very intense smear campaign against him after his arrival back in America. His name is still not cleared and some of the websites about his experiences are extremely anti towards him.
Whatever, it seems America was riddled with dodgy goings on during the Vietnam war. Senator John Mcaine, (who is the Republican Presidential candidate) has also been accused of conniving with the Vietnames Communists during his time in a POW camp. There's a film on YouTube called, "Missing presumed dead". Look it up, it's interesting. Actually there's also a whole rook of films about Mcaine, both for and against him.
Senator John Kerry (D) came back to America after the war and went on the campaign trail with Hanoi Jane Fonda, demonstrating against the war in Vietnam and calling American soldiers murderers! Check out the website, it's an education in itself:
The site is very nationalistic but you'll get the message they're trying to convey.
Why is it the Big Boys can get away with it but the little guys get it in the neck?
...because that's life Reggie.
Blimey that is pretty heavy. Maybe if we're lucky Frank Delaney can open some eyes.
If they still keep their heads buried well at least we tried!
With regards to British stamps ....can I help out in any way?
Right trying a different tactic and replying on your blog instead of mine.
Actually I think my brain has ceased up with this cold. I've had several emails from friends going "what you on about woman?"
So.....tissues I went through by the box full so I hung a loo roll round my neck on a chain....that worked. Perfecto yeah.
