A most excellent Veteran's Day.

"If it ain't raining, you ain't training!" That was the comment on a post several days ago - and so it proved yesterday, as parade participants and spectators got some good cold, wet, training in. I was supposed to have today off, but I find that the engine of business churns on and requires my presence. So I'll leave you with these pictures - and a promise of a more fleshed-out post to come.

But most of all, Thank You Monteith! You've got a hell of a ride, and yesterday certainly reignited that itch!

This is the Armorer, Monteith, and a fellow-collector in the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, whose jeep you will see later.

This is Montieth, prepping his Ferret for the parade. The Armorer is pleased to note that while he casts a large shadow, he can still clamber on these things and get in. He wouldn't want to have to get out under pressure, however!

And a big thank you to parade organizers, the Police, and, most importantly, the citizens of Atlanta who took time out from a work day for most of them to line the parade route in a cold, drizzly rain!
