ROFL!!!! I just LOVE that "grimace and jargon" quote by Hamilton! He was such a card! lol!

Thanks Mrs. Mecomber and Cato for reading your comments.

Mrs. M -- I love that bit too! I'm sorry you couldn't participate, but don't worry; I understand. I've been busy too.

Cato -- Thanks. And I enjoyed your post also. :)

Happy weekend!

Ah yes...once again Herky!

Delightful choice of some really exposed humor! Amazing how Mr. Hamilton describes the British as I suspect during that time was getting rather common, insofar as the realization of independence was very nearly in hand.

Then just looking at General Knox...he appears to me to always have either a bit of tobacco spittle at the side of his mouth and puffy cheeks or some unconsumed food on his chest.

Yet, the entire exchange between the two (Hamilton & Knox) seems to be in good humor, almost to the point of Gen. Knox knowing Hamilton from previous experiences; which is not altogether that much out of the ordinary considering Mr. Hamilton's position vis-s-vie General Washington.

Absolutely loved it!!

May our Lord continue to bless you and yours...

What a great story, Herky! It reminds me of a couple teenage boys standing around a campfire saying, "I'm not scare of ghosts." And then somebody else yells "Boo!" and they scream like little girls. :)

Hello Jean. Thanks for reading and leaving your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed. :)

I don't recall personally having the pleasure of seeing a bunch of teenagers scream like little girls (*snicker*), I did enjoy your little story. :)

I think Hammy got a bit carried away here. I mean, he was pretty bold, and he could be the enthusiastic little death-defying patriot of the field, that it's reported that it even made Washington smile. :)

Happy FFQF!
