New blogger for the New Year

Long time readers of these little scribblings will have noticed that I occasionally post stories from my friend Peter.

Author, historian, soldier, fellow African ex-pat, and more -- he is the source of the quote:

"An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he can't get it wrong"

-- I am honoured to call this man a friend.

After months of suggesting, Peter has gone and gotten hisself a blog:

Bayou Renaissance Man.

Go by and visit -- you won't be disappointed.

I had been previously reading Peter as "Preacherman" on thehighroad.org and armedpolitesociety.com. It's generally good to see him around. His blog just got added to my bookmarks.

And my late husband is the source, upon being asked how he'd like to be transferred to Russia, of the comment, "Oh, yes. That's my next choice: right after Tripoli, Libya, Bangladesh, and Lubbock, Texas."
Which has now been quoted in various forms in both books and movies.
Great minds, and all that-.

Thanks for the link. That guy is almost as good as you are. Your blog is a "must read" for me. From what I've seen so far his will be as well.
