Good 53º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday we started off with a super clear blue sky, then about 8am the clouds moved in and hid the sun....
Then it got really dark cloudy.....
After clear sky and 105º on Tuesday, this was odd. By noon we weren't even at 80º.
We eventually topped at 94º after the sun came through.
There are some awful fires raging in Arizona...
Picture of the Day .....😲
Interesting about Audie Murphy.....
Audie Murphy (1925-1971) enlisted in the U.S. Army to fight in WWII. He killed 240 German soldiers, was wounded three times and earned 33 awards and medals becoming the most decorated solider. After the war, he appeared in more than 40 films starring in his own story, ‘To Hell and Back’.
He enlisted in the Army in February 1943. After some training, he left for North Africa, where he received more extensive training. From Northern Africa he was moved to Italy and in August 1944, Murphy’s division moved to southern France as part of Operation Dragoon.
It was here that his best friend Lattie Tipton, was lured into the open and killed by a German soldier pretending to surrender. Enraged by the act, Murphy charged and killed the German. Then he commandeered the German machine gun and grenades and attacked several more nearby positions, killing all the German soldiers there. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his actions.
Over the course of WWII, Murphy witnessed the deaths of hundreds of his fellow and enemy soldiers. He suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder throughout his life. Endowed with great courage in the face of these horrors, he was awarded 33 U. S. Military medals, including three Purple Hearts (wounds) and one Medal of Honor.In 1949, Murphy published his autobiography, ‘To Hell and Back’ which became a best seller and in 1955 he portrayed himself in the film version of his book. He died in a plane crash in 1971.
