'Ed Freeman... A True Hero'

You're an 18 or 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965. LZ Xray , Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a
helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.

And, he kept coming back...... 13 more times..... and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died Sep. 27, 2008 at the age of 80, in Boise , ID .......May God rest his soul.....

(Oh yeah, Paul Newman died that day too. I guess you knew that --

He got a lot more press than Ed Freeman.)

copy of the white house remarks on the presentation of the medal. He didn't receive it until 2001.

Other sources list his date of death as August 20, 2008, not that it has any bearing on the bravery demonstrated in this story.

The battle referred to is the same battle in "We Were Soldiers."


Sex in the Shower.

In a recent survey carried out for a leading toiletries firm (Brut), Democrats from Detroit and Chicago have proved to be the most likely to have had sex in the shower!

In the survey, 86% of Detroit 's and Chicago's inner political circle residents (almost all of whom are registered Democrats) said that they have enjoyed sex in the shower.

The other 14% said they hadn't been to prison yet.

Brining a Holiday Turkey

Well Sir...although Cookie has been cookin Turkey's fer many years, in just about every way imaginable, the one thing I had never done was to "Brine" a Turkey, so, this year I decided to give it a try for our Christmas turkey.

The compliments I got still haven't stopped. I even got a call this AM from one of my kids again telling how absolutely delicious, tender, tastey and moist the turkey, I'll share this super secret Brine recipe that I got off Google with ya.

Give it a try next turkey y'all cook....

Holiday Turkey Brine

This poultry brine is perfect for the holiday turkey. By using vegetable stock you get extra flavor with a mild saltiness that makes for a perfect brine.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

• 1 1/4 cup salt (2 cups Kosher or coarse salt)
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 1 gallon vegetable stock
• 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
• 1 tablespoon allspice berries
• 1/2 tablespoon candied ginger
• 1 gallon ice water


Pour vegetable stock into a large pot over a high heat. Add salt, brown sugar, and spices. Bring to a light boil. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour in ice water and stir to combine.

Place turkey in a large plastic container (at least 4 gallon). Pour brine over top. Refrigerate and brine for 1 hour per pound.

Thoroughly rinse all the brine from the turkey before cooking. Otherwise there will be a salty flavor to the turkey.

Black Testicles

A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still heavily sedated from a difficult four hour, surgical procedure.

A young student nurse appears to give him a partial sponge bath.

Nurse', he mumbles, from behind the mask 'Are my testicles black?'

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies 'I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet.'

He struggles to ask again, 'Nurse, are my testicles black?'

Concerned that he may elevate his vitals from worry about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and sheepishly pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his penis in one hand and his testicles in the other, lifting and moving them around. Then, she takes a close look and says, 'There's nothing wrong with them, Sir !!'
The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and says very slowly, 'Thank you very much. That was wonderful, but listen very, very closely......

'A r e - m y - t e s t - r e s u l t s - b a c k ? '

Gotta Thank "Chicago Charlie" and "FishinMagician" fer some of these humorous photygraffs & jokes.....
