Do you remember the musical SOUTH PACIFIC?

I recently came across a batch of pictures of Anna’s uncle Paul. Paul served in the Marines in the Pacific in World War II.

In the above picture he is on the first row, the last one of the right. Look at the men with the coconut bras and grass skirts. Some enchanted evening – right?

Do indeed remember South Pacific. The antiracism of it and Show Boat were an epiphany in my formative years. Still love both of those.

And a great picture. Wish I had pictures of my uncles in the European war. One of them got a medal for, having taken German in school, standing up and persuading a German machine gun nest to surrender.

Si,
Back then I was fighting the Jerrys in my back yard - in the sandbox.
