My father was in the Bataan Death March during WWII. The last POW camp he was at was Hoten in Manchuri, China. This is a video that made it to youtube. There is no sound. I do have a copy of this video given to us by another POW that knew my Dad. My father is at 4:02. He is the good looking guy on the left with his hand on the shoulder of the guy to his right with the white cap. My father does not have on a hat.
Dawn at Quilts and Pieces unduly pressured me in to buying my own wacker....giggle. Go see her great review, and then if you can't resist and want your own 'Wacker' go to Harvest House Quilting and then you'll be just like me.
If Mick finds this whacker, I'm afraid he might just use it on me.
**edited a couple of times to correct spelling....whacker to wacker.........LOL

Dawn want us to pick a song that describes our life.....was that the beginning, the middle, now or our hope. I'm not sure. The first song describes my childhood and early adulthood. The one below is what I'm yearning for.
