Today in History. With comment by Vest.plus tragic news from Ireland.

1943.
After surrendering to Allied forces in WW2, Italy declares war on Germany, its former Axis partner.
Vest Say's; I always considered them to be a bunch of Wimps. As most of the guns on their warships faced aft in order to fire on opposing ships while fleeing the battle.

2004.
An intoxicated Supreme court Judge  Jeff Shaw will join the list of other disgraced NSW and Fed  supreme court judges after crashing his Alfa Romeo into a parked vehicle in Birchgrove, he resigns soon after.
Vest Say's,
 Judge not lest thou be Judged.

1986.
Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser speaks at the Memphis USA Country Club,
He is found next morning minus his passport, wallet and trousers...... Hmm!!! naughty Malcolm.
Vest Say's.
Local Sydney DJ's  rustle up ancient recordings of silly Scottish  song, "Donald where's your troozers"

Tragic news from Ireland,
Ireland 's worst air disaster occurred early this morning when a small two-seater Cessna plane crashed into a cemetery. Irish search and rescue workers have recovered 2826 bodies so far and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the night. 

Vest Say's. One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are dreaming of some magical garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.

Back soon Vest.

Hi Grandson Dylan.
