back with a vengeance

Gah...I popped in, read the "1st of october deadline"...And panicked.
I realized this morning that the drive containing the above mentioned story burned a few months back. Sat all day in the truck, trying to remember most of it and spent five hours just now staring at black-on-white rewriting whatever I could out of memory. Quite a mutated beast it became. Now I read 2nd...Just cracks me up
Well, it'll have to stand on its own now...Not my best, but a good practice in speed writing
It is sent!

From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli'
We fight our countrys battles In the air', on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom , And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title Of United States Marines.
Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze From dawn to setting sun';
We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy Ever gaze on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines. - US Marines Hymn
