The Deck Of Cards...!


This story has been around for a very, very long time.

Even so, I think it's one that should be replayed from time to time...especially to honor the spirit of all the men and women that put themselves in harm's way daily to protect us all!

Please, if you have heard this before...listen again! If you have never heard it, then please listen closely!



That's all I have for now. I thank you for coming by!

Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit.

I've seen it before, but it never hurts to see it again, Mister Hermit, sir.

There are no atheists in foxholes.

Hey Felinae...
Glad you liked it! I think that every once in a while, it's good to go back and see ad listen to some of the old patriotic songs, ya know?

I sure am glad you could come by today, lady!


Hey K...
Always a pleasure to see you, girl! I'm glad you don't mind hearing this again...

Right about not being any athiests in foxholes...!

Tank you for coming by, my friend!

Morning Jim;

Thanks, Seen and heard this more than once. Still brings a tear. Our atheists could learn a good lesson.

See Ya

Hey Tony...
You know, I figured that you had heard this more than once...with us being so close to the same age!

Still kinda tugs at the old heart strings, for sure!

Thanks so much for coming by today, buddy!

HermitJim said...

Hey OGT...
Normally I don't delete comments...but when they are just blatant advertising, they gotta go!

Hey I thank you for the visit, my friend!

Hermit Jim, I can't watch any you tubes on my PC but I know I heard the story when I was a kid. I even remember a country song by Red Sovine or someone like him about the very same thing. It was sad and so true.

Very nice, but not totally correct.... Mary is NOT queen of Heaven

HermitJim said...

Hey Axeanda...
I didn't write the song or the lyrics. It was written sometime in the 40's, if memory serves me.

If you have an issue with some of the words, my I suggest you try and contact the folks that wrote the song...or that own the copywrite and discuss it with them.

I only put these things on here for the entertainment value...and for the enjoyment of my readers!

Thanks for coming by!

I was just pointing out an inaccuracy, I didnt say you were responsible.
