  1. Good choice today Todd. The depth of the man never ceases to amaze me. (Then there’s that incredible sense of humor, “Veal anyone?”

  2. Bill Brandt

    I felt like I was sitting there with him – just him and me, and he is talking before dinner. All that was missing was my martini.

    Wonder what their issued pistol was? I think, in Vietnam at last, it was a .38 revolver.

    • Currently, it’s a SIG P228. I don’t know if it was the same @10 years ago during Lex’s flying time over hostile territory.

    Speaking of flippen Vegans…not that anyone asked…
    ….but I have a niece whose a Vegan and a real pain in the ass…and a smug one at that…she bakes Vegan holiday gingerbread men…no eggs no butter…they taste and look like soggy beaverboard… but they’re vegan. Her idea of a great dinner is a bushel of kale boiled in a big pot flavored with olive oil and garlic…whats not to like eh ? Best, Frank C.

  4. Learn sump’in reading here all the time. Had to go look up beaverboard and then knew exactly what the gingerbread men might taste like. Not that I’ve ever tasted soggy beaverboard.
    Although they may have served it once or twice on the Connie. Had to ask the cook once what I was looking at. “Dat, sar,” (he was from the PI), he said, “Is a pizza!”
    That was the day I opted for the pb and j at the end of the chow line.

  5. Snake – any vegan I have ever met fits your description of your niece perfectly. Smug pains in the ass. I don’t think Lex ever followed-up with how that evening went…I suspect his very military-ness would have been enough to leave the vegans tasting…
    …veal.
