I just want to shake this guys hand.
Nice...heres one i posted years ago...Should remind you not to mess with a Kiwi...Something the US Navy forgot in Perth during WW2. The Perth Hospital played host to quite a few US navy personnel that day. Apparently one US Navyman told a Maori to "move nigger"...for the first and last time.
And this is just a wedding!
During World War II, the Allied Forces bombed various locations in France. Between June 1940 and May 1945, they bombed a total of 1,570 cities and towns – killing 68,778 civilians and injuring over 100,000. Almost half a million homes were completely destroyed. In 1943 alone, 7,458 French civilians were killed by Allied bombs.
Some of the deadliest bombings were in Le Havre (1944) with more than 5,000 deaths, Marseille (1944) with 1,752 deaths, Nantes (1943) with 1,247 deaths, and Caen and Saint-Etienne with over 1,000 deaths each.
You feel better when these are around.....
I think they can go into silent mode.
