    What is going on in the illustartion above, apart from the obvious?

    What is the symbol on the old guy’s hat?

    Who are the young couple?

    It’s a Veterans of Foreign Wars New Years Eve party, note the young guy’s VFW hat.

    I pray we all, family, friends and country have a great new year.

  9. Re:The Maltese Cross on the old fellow’s hat:

    “The Cross of Malta is the VFW’s official emblem. The cross, radiating rays, and Great Seal of the United States together symbolize the character, vows and purposes distinguishing VFW as an order of warriors who have traveled far from home to defend sacred principles. Its eight points represent the beatitudes prescribed in the Sermon on the Mount: Blessed are the poor in spirit, the meek, the pure, the merciful, the peacemakers; blessed are they who mourn, seek righteousness and are persecuted for righteousness’ sake. The eight-pointed Cross of Malta harks back to the Crusades, launched during the 12th century.”

    Happy New Year everyone. Onward and Upward, higher and higher in 2018.

  11. Happy New Year, all! That unfortunate fellow in the illustration reminds me of a young Ronald Reagan pushing Chesterfields:


  12. “The moving finger writes, and having writ moves on, nor all they piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor thy tears wash out a word of it.” I hope I got that right. Happy New Year and thank you, Christian, for all your efforts.
