No more ice cream? Perish the thought
People sometimes ask what I consider to be my favorite food. My answer is usually, “Probably whatever I’m eating at the time.”
The variety of food types available to humankind is like the variety of stars in the sky: Each is unique, and each has its own purpose in Creation.

As I, a Union artillery first sergeant, was presenting the Virginia colors in the company of an honor guard of Confederate soldiers, a bagpiper began to play at Al Comer’s graveside services.
