SPECIAL INTEREST INFORMATION

- REMEMBER 9/11 - GOD BLESS AMERICA & GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS IN IRAQ & AROUND THE WORLD!!!

Pictured below is the memorial for Iraq Combatant Joey Strong who was killed in Iraq in December 2007. My son Evan is married to Joey's sister Vanessa with little Joey on the way. (NOTE* Little Joey is here! He was born on March 11th 2009 and he's a dandy!!) Joey was a machine gunner in a Humvee when he was killed along with another soldier. It was a tragic loss for the family and the first combantant from Boone County Indiana to lose his live in Iraq. He was genuinely a great guy and is sorely missed. A void that won't be filled during our lifetime. Check out his other memorial pics on the ID'd Items page.


Here's more of Joey's Memorial pics. His Mother spared no expense in the rememberance of her son.






We all lost a good friend, Larry Thompson, in the Civil War Collecting family in May. He and his wonderful wife Carla were staples at and participated in many Civil War shows over the years and we always looked forward to seeing our good friends. They have not been able to attend shows for the last few years due to health problems. He will be missed. Here is Larry's obituary printed in his home town paper:

Here's a pic of my youngest son Derek with a nice male cat that we rescued. This is an approximately 5 year old yellow and white cat weighing about 10 pounds that has contracted FIV, the cat type of HIV. This disease is not transmittable to other amimals or humans but is transmittable to other cats through biting or scratching so they have to be kept separate. He is a wonderful health cat at this time and we enjoy his company very much. We have 4 rescued cats and 3 rescued dogs whose pics follow. We also feed 3 or 4 homeless cats outside our front door. Please have your pets spayed or neutered to help control the pet populations and please support your local Humane Society. Thanks! Ted & Sallie
