Gathering 2017 (XV) Morro Bay, CA

The California Gathering should give those in Western States, who can’t come to the Gatherings in the East,  the chance to attend a Gathering. There may not be any Gun Trucks there, but as always it will be a good one. Kathy and Sgt Willie is working to make this the Best one ever. If anyone know of Guntrucks or military vehicles in California or the West that might want to come let Kathy and Willie know.

Guntruck Songs

 

Adding one for John, his Mustang, AND Chuck Berry!-)  ENJOY!

     As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…

ACE OF SPADES:

PLAYBOYS:

ROAD RUNNER:

BLACK WIDOW:

RUNNIN’ BARE:

Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!

And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”

RUNNING BEAR:

 (A LOT of good music came from the ’60s.  Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)

SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)

WILD THING:

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

THE CREEPER:

TheCreeperDCcomic

I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Doesn’t take too much to get me listening to those great songs of the ’60’s…John reminded me of another song by The Kinks (and another Guntruck!)

SET ME FREE:

Hope you enjoy.

Respectfully, deb

October 11th 1972

Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho drafted a 9 point cease fire agreement in Paris, which was signed October 30th. The agreement:

Covers exchange of POWs

Allows North Vietnamese troops to remain in the South.

Reaffirms the 1954 agreement that the 17trh parallel is a temporary Demarcation line and not a political or territorial boundary. Reunification is to be achieved through peaceful means.

Contains a US pledge to supply aid for the reconstruction of Indochina including North Vietnam.
