    I didn’t post last week, since Mrs. Mirage and me went for a 5 day holiday to the north to see the large water falls of Iguazu, in the province of Misiones. Enjoying the beginning of Fall season.

    The photograph is taken from the hotel balcony. The chocolate colored river is the Iguazu River (Rio Iguazu), the one on the left is the Parana River (Rio Parana). Across the rivers are Paraguay (left)and Brazil (right). We are on the Argentine side.

    We also did the boat ride at the base of the falls. I didn’t film with my phone since I was afraid of destroying it. This video is also from YouTube, but it gives a good sense of what happens on the tour.

    Hello.. I spend a lot of time on line looking at old photos of the USA. Particularly from the 30s & 40s. The other day I found this photo in the Library of Congress. I found it by searching the word "Negro".....

    The man pictured above is my grandfather. He died of a heart attack before the end of WWII(1945) I know it is him because of two factors.

    1) He's nearly the spitting image of my dad.
    2) He was the only Black licensed furnace/boiler tender in Ohio.

    Too bad there's no one left to share this photo with.

I am sorry that your folks are gone, no doubt your Dad and Mom would be proud as well,,,, and son, you do your people proud, no doubt in my mind, that your Grandpa would love the man you became, a proud American, a strong American, and a United States Navy Sailor! tell your pretty lady we said Hi, just love you man, and I'm proud to have you as my SDF shipmate and brother, I'm so thankful you are back up to a full head of steam!

    Yes they were proud that I served. If my dad was still here on Earth he'd be 105 years old this Sunday. And my mom passed away in 2011.. she would have been 97.
