The General Pickett Letters 3

http://www.ravenecho.com/static/157/ca7a15f8dc6bc0b957bd16a2efd66489.jpg

Baillie!

The men in the photos escorting my now deceased mother-in-law : one

is a cousin to me and the other a brother-in-law.

George died of what was referred to as a coming down with the chills.

It must have been an influenza or our shared problem of excessive gas.

A few pints of stout and I am a one man musician.

He was like me loyal to the boys. I stood my ground for my pressman and

labourers at The Leader-Herald newspaper when I was employed as a

Commercial Printing Manager and locked horns many a time with the

publisher trying to get people promoted and raises in pay. I always

felt your company is only as good as your men or employees. Its your

greatest asset!

Screw the help and you'll fail, because the loyalty to a good

manager or commander is only complimentary to his ability to reflect

the same to his troops.

I will burn you a CD or two with newer 1860's music and send them out.

Strange you mentioned Bobby Horton, as I am going to call him tonight.

I want to carry his CD's in my store.

Here is the old man in front of his store on the Grand Opening day 18

June 2005. I did not wear my sash that day. Also the sun was out early

on and in my eyes. The photographer made me crack a smile. I usually

look at a camera with that dead eye glare!

George

Good boots George!

Love the boots......... gotta have good boots!

Baillie was bare foot in the Atlanta campaign for some two weeks or more

family desperately trying to get him some new boots so the letters say

that is probably where my thing about boots comes from

my ones from the start of the war had probably just fallen apart about

then May June 1864

and there were no dead Yankees to oblige! Yet plenty once Sherman

started his march to the sea

I know I had a Federal light blue overcoat that winter may be from the

previous up at Green pond SC

here's the painting

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: BaillieChristmas186350%.jpg : actual size 287k : encoded size 382k, was included here ]

I can see why the boys loved you - that's Southern leadership with a

capital S

gotta lead from the front and respect the men - then they respect and

follow you

they will march into the gates of hell - no questions - as you did!

total love and respect for each other and the cause

I wonder what the Yankees around Amsterdam make of your store

must confuse the hell out of them!!!!!!!!! as they thought they had won

and now here you are occupying their territory!!!!!!!

flag and all

how cool is that!!!! ???

as for the music you can see the synchronicity kicking in - I mentioned

Bobby and you had planned to call him!!!!!!!!!!!!

that's how it works

there ain't no accidence in this universal game

so yes please some music would be mighty fine and if the General would

do me the honour of signing the covers I shall treasure them CD's to the

day I die!

as I signed my books with my Civil war name so I would be most humbly

pleased if you could sign them with your George signature and the date

gives me a buzz when I sign my old signature and then put the present

day

reinforces the fact that I've beaten the system - makes my chuckle!

since discovering the Photo of Baillie in 1999 - I've had a permanent

grin on my face ever since and it shows no signs of going away!

guess you do too now........ great thing is that there are plenty of

photos and info about George

so you ain't got to dig too hard

most folks that I help know stuff but desperately want that evidence -

that tangible proof

I'm lucky and so are you are is Jeff and Dianne Seaman that we were in

some measure "famous" or grand enough to have a photo taken

with me like everything else I do have done - I paid for it

myself!!!!!!! as a present for Sallie

Did the same thing with the Schuttersmaaltijd portrait in the

Rijksmuseum

cost half a years Salary!!!!!!!!!!! to have a full length portrait

painted with the boys

again it was the Shooting club the Boys were the other members St Joris

Doelen The St George's Long bow shooting Club of Amsterdam

thank goodness I did that - my own message in time to myself

Here's me 1991

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: Baillie1645D.jpg : actual size 27k : encoded size 36k, was included here ]

Here's William Baillie 1638 coincidentally about the same age

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: WILLIAMBAILLIE300%enhanced.jpg : actual size 100k : encoded size 133k, was included here ]

Just put the two together in power point side by side!

well better skiddadle and get on with some school work we have the

school ball Saturday night - chance to wear me kilt!

we break up Wed July 6th for Summer hols........

will be writing the new book in the porch when the weather is not good

for sailing

I also think you are getting much more George in your e-mails

it is working George is coming to the surface and speaking the tone and

language is pure him so we are making progress

I'll find my Gettysburg war game pics Erik will love to see them

and it will stimulate so more memories!

Folks were always amazed when they came into the Chemistry lab and saw

the display in action with cannons going off and the Gettysburg movie

running full blast on the video - love that music they did it proud

bet you liked Stephen Lang he captured George's spirit if not the direct

look!

Did you like that??????????

Love the cannons going off and the camera panning really gave an insight

into ol' E Porter Alexander's efforts

Did I tell you that he was President of The Central of Georgia Railroad

after the war........... he was my boss!!!!!!!!! think I met him once

or twice and chin wagged about his efforts - I was always a cannon fan!

I was a civil engineer and survey for the C of G RR until 1888 when I

was 60 and retired! well forced to

didn't want to had to live on hand out until I got a pension in 1900

tough times that bit -

Hey Baillie!

LaSalle described him a having kind and small hands, which I do

have, small feet, size 9-1/2 and 10 boot. I f we had his uniform it

most likely would fit me perfectly. I just know it. I am (was ) before

three disks went bad in my lower back 5 feet 9 inches. Now I am around

5ft. 8".

I weighed 195 lbs. last year. Working nights all last year getting

these two stores up and running I lost 35 to 40 lbs. I do feel too

skinny right now! My face was fuller and I had a beer belly too!

Cuffs, huh! My sutler made mine a little short and I was furious. I

like them longer. See see only Pickett would know what the coat should

feel like on his arms! And how do you do the calculations and base it

on George's measurements. Do you know where I could find them?

I sucked in math. I hated school. Almost as bad as George did! I ain't

no rocket scientist by no means. Talk & write. Wait till you see my

walk with the bowed legs. I 've been told that I walk with a swagger,

cocksure and on a mission. Always fast. Then there is the pacing when I

have to wait. Leather heels clapping on the wood-floors and hands

behind my back pacing back and forth. And the voice...it can get loud!

Some people ask me if I am from Virginia by the way I say bonnie and

blue. And a few other words of choice!

I'll have several in memory of my boys and probably tear up again.

You should have seen the two of us last year when Erik & I had to

depart Gettysburg after the SCV rally in September. Tears streaming

down his face and me all choked up and could not speak or hardly see

the damn road ahead! I still get that feeling when I think of it!

Tomorrow ! Good Night Sir!`

Hey Baillie!

Got the second book this morning. Now I have to get cracking and put on my spectacles and read!

Thank You my Brother!

Eureka! I hit a chord...........we hit the motherlode

this is a whole damn book we've got he George!!!!!!!!!!!

I can figure the math no probs love getting stuck into a project and

this is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

best seller if we get it right

you and General Webb................. dynamite

the old antagonists face tio face again we will knock America so it

don't know what's hit 'em!

yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

I've got my dander up and need to shoot some lead off!!!!!!!!!

paint-ball supplies get my lottery numbers in for Monday and back to

Ian Baillie

Excellent George - you're opening the gates - let it come - be brave

remember it can't hurt you - you are grounded in this life

try to record the dreams before you forget

pencil and pad by the bed is a good idea

definitely making progress - knew you would!

Re Phil - well he can't see a barn door at 20 paces - to rooted in the

here and now - not a bad thing

but it is challenging his belief systems as I knew it would and he has

the lid shut tight

but I will preserve

I can see the likeness but he can't as above

the clincher would be if Webb was wounded in the knee

also I will do a timeline check for coincidences between his life and

Webb's

the pictures from 1981 equivalent to 1861 for Webb do not show a useful

profile

but he was mighty pumped up that year as we went to Italy for a Summer

holiday so much so I called him "Action man" on all the photos of him

the surge of energy across time would account for this

I have experienced the same 1645 for me was 1999 and that was when

Baillie was at the height of his General's powers as a Lt General

chasing Montrose the burst of energy coincided with the finding of

Baillie Kell's portrait and led to the undoing of my subconscious mind

through sheer force of will with Rosie and the emotional paintings

the strain was too much for my physical body 6 months extreme remote

viewing using my conscious will to prise open my mind!

shouldn't do that too much - I was living double speed

and the adrenaline stress caused my kidneys to collapse to 50%

functioning with water retention

was drinking 8 to 10 pints of water a night to avoid dehydration

as it just went straight through

was scary - but I knew I could consciously heal myself - Doc said - had

I been marching around in the desert! You're totally dehydrated!!!!!

blood readings were off the scale as was blood pressure

but I had cracked the matrix as you will read

nearly killed me but I did it

now it just flows out

I can access all areas of my subconscious at will

also I was becoming more Baillie Kell than Baillie me here and now

and more and I would have passed over I think

stood on the brink of the abyss and looked in

way cool!!!!!!!!!!!! but don't recommend it too often

like Close Encounters of the Third Kind

the obsession can have a devastating effect on those who love you and

look on

you must remember to love them and protect them

for they love you more than anything

that's what it is all about in the end

muskets and cannons and horses are boys toys

so keep one foot on the ground in their love

keep grounded George

just let it flow and keep control of you health

remember your coming up for the passing over synchronicity with George

it's bound to have a knock on effect on your physical being but you can

control it and limit the effects using your conscious here and now mind

remeber as you said - we are not supposed to be doing this!

But we are going to do it anyway!

we are consciousness explorers just make sure you got a good rope to

haul you back out - Rosie was mine

psychonauts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose you could call use

and you can interpret that any way you like!!!!!! hee hee

Baillie Been there done that got the tee shirt and still living to

prove it!

got my renal check up July 12th but I have gone up another gear almost

normal again

I actually told the Doc what I had been up to the year after he was

amazed !!!!!!!! but didn't dismiss it said it could well have been

they had no answers as to why it went wrong and then the miraculous

recovery 6 months after my blood was 140 over 75

as I left to see Norman in 2001

too much stress is what kills you

Baillie

cavalry's job to scout ahead - shame JEB forgot that!

Baillie!

I'll have me wife do up the measurements today if practicable. Today is

the damned 3rd of July. I close the store at 2 pm EST buy my son his

paint-ball supplies get my lottery numbers in for Monday and back to

the arms of my camp to drink up a little for my boys. I had a dream lat

Hey Baillie.

I made it through. We shot off some small rockets and cursed the

yanks Put a few 58 caliber shots through the head of Sherman and that

fat bastard Butler. Let off a lot of pent up anger and drank afterwards

and enjoyed the rest of the evening.

Erik & I were on our way back to camp and I got a chill and the hair on

the back of my nec k was standing at attention and goosebumps down my

arms, then I looked at the digital clock in my Explorer..It read 3:00

PM 7/3/05.

Enough said. Talk more later.

George

Baillie,

Well Sir! Did the Post Man deliver what is intended for you to

cherish and possess?

Or did customs enjoy the package 1st? It should have arrived by now!

Excellent therapy! I do the same at the range with my .44 Colt Walker

Outstanding - synchronicity - that's how it works

Enough said. Talk more later.

George

Also your package arrived yesterday

thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much - it was far more than

expected

I smiled when I saw that you had tied up the CD's exactly as a new

uniform would have been!!!!!!!!!!!!!! complete with twine!

no body uses twine anymore.............

further evidence if it were needed that you are from a different time

I immediately played the CD's and the tears rolled

first with the emotive fiddle music but then with the tune Our Dixie

forever - always does it down with the Eagle up with the Cross

definitely an anti Roman sentiment which hits the nerve

my last past life is particularly vivid but it is layered on 8 others

one the Capture Celt made to fight in the arena at the Colosseum

the other tune is Rebel Soldier which I find myself singing often

and Wanna have a good time join the cavalry always makes me smile

outstanding job I shall make copies for the car and play them all summer

long

and the most valuable thing the piece of High water mark!

sacred stone

it will go alongside my Georgia red clay and Railroad spikes from

Griffin Station GA

I even dusted my cavalry kepi in Baillie's grave dirt

so it has a faint pink tinge........sacred soil

I got the idea from Al Bean the Lunar Apollo astronaut

who wanting to make his paintings special used bits of his lunar uniform

space suit patches covered in moon dust embedded into his paintings

thus making them at a stroke unique and priceless

well visiting my own grave was my Moon walk!

To the top of the hill, Sir!

Thanking the General most kindly

Baillie

Spring chicken! Pauline is Hawaii 5 0 tomorrow

and I'm taking herself, Harriet and Granpa to Leeds Castle near

Maidstone for lunch

Built by Henry the VIII for Anne Bolyne - so he could stay over night

on his way to Dover for a bit of Royal R and R

Lady Baillie restored it in the 30's with her millionaire American

husband (same name!) and left it to a trust for the nation and to keep

it running (tax dodge!)

took Norman from Corpus Christi TX and his son Steve there in 2002 on

their way to our house from the airport (Gatwick London)

every thing had Baillie written on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all the labels

everything - I started to chuckle half way around as it was like

Hi Norman he's your brother Baillie and just to prove the point here are

4 million labels with my name on!!!!!!!

we also had our school Valentine's Day ball there this year - wore me

kilt so I did - danced the night away! - t'was a good do!

anyways

should be a nice day out

has a wicked portrait of Black Tom Fairfax Commander of the New Model

Army (English Civil War) and also his buff coat

the Roundheads spared it as it was their arsenal during the conflict

unlike many a good Royalist castle Cromwell demolished

so fun for all!

Baillie

will let you know how it turns out

Baillie,

The George in me is getting stronger and the urges are incredible. Am

I going through a process I need to know about? Please let me know.

The balcony is bothering me again just like day one.

George or Paul or whoever!

I was going to write tomorrow have finished doing 3 big firework shows

over the weekend - smell of black powder in the nostrils, but this is

important

Don't worry or panic - very unlike you I know but this can get scary was

for me - I wanted to be more Baillie Kell than Baillie me and I nearly

didn't come back

these things are synchronous with age - very important fact

major trauma crisis in George's life will echo and reverberate in your

here and now....... trick is to stay in charge

you're coming to the end of George's life so things will be getting

pretty desperate and because you are tune well into your former self you

will feel the effects

remember not to take the feelings to heart you are physical you and

don't let George's ill health effect you

money worries will be a large part of that issue too as you are finding

irrational worries may come into your head most anytime

remember you are sound financially and strong plus have the love of your

family - continue to create the here and now

Don't be afraid to just let go and have a rest - George is always you

and now you have found yourself you won't ever lose it

me I'm Baillie - Ian Baillie now most important I continue to be myself

in the physical now

I observed crossing over thoughts while blowing up things over the

weekend and I was there in 1651 for an instant - know why I like things

like the mortars racks of 5 - the Scots used frame guns very similar we

had 88 of them so lugging them around was a joy as they offered good

protection on the battlefield

cool!!!!!!! also go back before George you have many memories echoes of

patterns sometimes several coincide to make a big one 9 wave or what

ever

Be strong YOU and control yourself - dispassionate observer is as good

as I can explain it

I am no longer totally emotionally involved I have an over view of

myself

but like you I have been wanting to solve my financial problems - by

looking for work moving out living in else where - this is a direct

Baillie memory Railroads 1879 and the Army 1651 before that

very strong - the universe will guide my path - I have faith in the

patterns it has for me

so look at the big picture and take comfort that you are never alone -

I've been through it so has Jeff we all deal with it differently but we

did it

Love you Paul - love Paul yourself too!

stay grounded

I have all the same feelings as you

future worries etc...... part of being Dad!

Baillie

Hope that helps????????

Baillie,

The George in me is getting stronger and the urges are incredible. Am

I going through a process I need to know about? Please let me know.

The balcony is bothering me again just like day one.

George or Paul or whoever!

Ian Baillie

Baillie

Sounds like a plan. Financially sound...heck if I was I would feel a

lot better. We are robbing Peter to pay Paul every month. Mortgage,

lines of credit, credit card bills. My Lord. How we are making it, I do

not know. But we are still here. I had a memory today. I was home for

lunch today and I was checking the time and I thought to pull a chain

from my vest and open my pocket watch. I was amazed. My watch is

locked in a safe and I do not wear vests. Have not in several years.

The urges I have had recently are to put on my uniform and go ride a

horse. Then today my balcony experience when I got triggered hit me

again while driving, I almost lost it. Tears welling up. Almost in

sobs. My God all those boys lost. What a damn waste. That's what been

going on.

George

I do the watch chain trick too! mines in the safe too!

sounds like you are healing yourself with what really rubs you at the

base of it all

like me being a General was a hell va responsibility and even though

George made light of it he took it pretty darn serious

I am in no way surprised that those emotions are playing havoc with you

- in fact I would be surprised if they weren't as this is the true sign

that your case is 100% genuine

I was a mercenary General 1638 - 48 and as such somewhat detached from

my conscript bunch of Yankee equivalent Scottish conscripts!!!!!!!!!!

God d**m their worthless hides - although a hard core of them were

good fighters and hard as nails and like me didn't like to be pushed

around by the English Royalist aristocracy!!!

Now Robert is more emotionally attached to the Boys - he calls them that

I yelled and he was the softer lets get it done part of the team

although my yelling was all theatre!!!!! I loved my army and that is the

flaw.......

you have to sacrifice that which you love

Cromwell had similar feelings for his New Model Army which I later

joined

Now let of the hook of responsibility I had a whale of a time with the

5th Georgia - that was pure emotion and fun too! Buck private no

responsibility just shoot as many darn Yankees as possible!

so I am in no way at least surprised that you are feeling it my old

friend

as George comes to the end of his life (at 50) He is thinking those

thought which are your thoughts and you are feeling his pain

let it flow brother

many a good boys lost a promising and useful life - but BUT

they were there because they wanted to be - no Yankee bunch of

conscripts forced to march across the field as at Fredericksburg

but free born boys proving a point and writing a noble chapter in the

annals of human endeavour

much as Leonidas and the Spartans at Thermoplylea

so weep and move on - just remember no to crash the car!

sometimes I just pull over and let it out look at the beautiful scenery

and remember - then continue with the here and now

"What does it do for a man to conquer the world when in truth and

reality, he has only his memories"

Baillie,

Well old comrade, the two stores are doing a bit better last few days.

Thank the Lord! I am having a friend come down here Monday & White

Light the joint. Seems as if there is the sword of Damocles and gloom

& doom hanging over our heads. As if we have been evil eyed or cursed.

She is the 1st Psychic I went to after I figured out who I was. Went

to her for an outsiders confirmation. Never met her until that initial

contact. Now we are great friends. She has done her readings here at

the store for my grand opening and was an instant hit. The ladies were

lining up. I am going to propose that she spend a few hours each week

here doing just that. Being the supreme draw she is. And believe me she

is accurate at what she says. Back to work for now!

George

You'll do it George - just keep at it....

now my fire works de brief - AWSOME plus Southern Wedding pics from

September the next door neighbours gal married Joe from North Carolina

son of a Catholic minister that teaches in a seminary

The fire works were brill we let off 1 ton in 15 minutes Saturday for

Roger De Haan £9,500 worth it was awesome

had to lug them to the top of the hill (good defensive position) made it

more memorable especially as I spent yesterday in bed recovering!!!!!!

my "last battle" a fractal reconstruction of the Battle of Worcester

1651 with Nic as Cromwell he is so much like him has even been ill with

a brain tumour for 6 months just as Cromwell was ill in 1651 but back in

the saddle in time for the Worcester campaign

I was looking down from the hill - the equivalent of Red Hill in 1651

watching the attack go in - this time I was with in charge of the 3 and

4 inch mortars - rapid fire and had time to watch the awesome spectacle

below as it lit up the sky

WOW! all day for 15 minutes but the memory will stay a life time or

several......

I've been feeling like I should be leaving Ashford (the New Model Army)

these past few weeks ever since I got my "excellent on all criteria with

no weaknesses" rating on my appraisal

can't do better than that

sure enough I have an interview for a Head of Science post at Wellesley

House tomorrow as 6 pm - Heads name R R Steel (Rail Road Steel!) as

Baillie Kell is on the Railroad and its 1879 - I can read the signs the

universe give now - be interesting to see if I get the job - I just feel

it is right

I would board in the week in Broadstairs to save travelling and get

stuck in.... OK here are some pictures

Southern Wedding Sept 2005

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: Wedding Party Sept 2005 160%.jpg : actual size 159k : encoded size 212k, was included here ]

compare to the Baillie Kell photo on the book cover!

and trooper Baillie ready to let fire 1 ton of fireworks - where's my

revolver!

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: Trooper Baillie impressed 1 ton WOW!.jpg : actual size 198k : encoded size 263k, was included here ]

If the uniform was Rebel grey we would be there!

Note I'm wearing my old German army shirt - I bought it in 1983 for a

Dollar (as my William Baillie German memory was kicking in - the first

one I had sown Dutch flags on!) and wore it lots in Germany 1984 -87

and the General Nic - just like Cromwell

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: The General is Happy 1 ton ready to go.jpg : actual size 184k : encoded size 246k, was included here ]

When we put our fireproof overalls on and helmets with visors on feels

just like you are there team talk then visors down and we are off

BOOOOOOOM!

a fractal re-enactment of a past event exactly synchronous with physical

age

Brilliant - all in next book YYYYYYYYYYYYyyeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhaaaaaaaahhh

hhhhhh!

Hey Baillie, Did not know you were a master of pyrotechnics! And who

may I ask, are the two lovely ladies with you at the church?

George!

Grand master please!

If it has gunpowder in it I'm there!

same in the 5th Georgia big old colt revolvers - yeah!!!!!!!!!

way to go

Well my dear Sir that is my daughter Harriet and my wife Pauline!

ain't I the lucky one........ zilch last time got the whole poker hand

this

my life has revolved around them two fillies - these past 32 years

Harriet was born the year Sallie left my life in 1862 = 1988 this time

around

and Harriet is the baby that Miss Sallie lost in 1867 the night she was

born - Pauline only ever wanted to have a baby - and it happened! To

correct the records last time around

I think Harriet was Sallie and Pauline was the baby - there is a role

reversal going on as they have their own karma to sort out too!

Pauline loves the heat - Florida etc........ can't stand cold - Harriet

is the snow and ice queen! weird huh!?

Harriet also recently wants to learn Dutch!!!!!!!!! all of a sudden -

so there could be a connection back to that one too.......

also Norway Vikings etc....... strong connection to polar bears

certainly as you know only too well - Love is the glue that binds the

universe together!!!

Harriet is definitely the older more assured soul

what an amazing GD universe - the Great architect be praised!

I've got an interview for a new job as Head of Science at Wellesley

House at 6 tonight - boarding school they want someone who can enthuse

the children over science!!!!!!

with me they get the whole package - value for money!

and the sign post from the universe is this the Headmasters name

is R R Steel (Rail Road Steel!) Baillie Kell is working on the Rail

Road in Georgia and it's 1879!

that and my excellent on all criteria with no weaknesses appraisal

evaluation last month from my present Head has boosted my confidence and

set this game plan into motion

we'll see what cards the universe deals me tonight!

certainly I'm on a roll at the moment!

still seeing stars and lights from Saturday's spectacular..........yeah!

!!!!!!

Baillie

Hey Baillie, Did not know you were a master of pyrotechnics! And who

may I ask, are the two lovely ladies with you at the church?

Ian Baillie

Now this here is trooper Kev - he's a genuine hillbilly Johnnie Reb if

ever I saw one - loves doing the mortars!!!!!!!! bigger the better -

lives down on the marsh at Dungerness - back woodmarsh country -

smugglers pirates etc......

has been 10 times all over the South and up the East coast

Tennessee Lookout mountain mentioned specifically

he ain' t real politically correct either got a thing about them dark

folk - way he talks is 140 years ago

we get on real well two old rebs chewing the fat and lettin' off

fireworks!!!!!!!! yeah

General Nic looks like a guy in the Rockbridge Artillery especially when

I first knew him 20 odd years ago same moustache and love of guns and

gunpowder

makes a real good Officer - leads from the front - fierce when things

ain't up to muster yet always polite when giving a direct order

His precision in lining up the ordinance on Saturday was meticulous very

much as an artillery man would do

my guess is that Kev and Nic go back to the Army of East Tennessee and

the campaigns there on

I did show Nic the photo a few years back - and he laughed but didn't

bite - this was when he was just setting up the fireworks shop behind

the gun shop

He is a real business savvy guy and a real workaholic - no time too read

etc...... just does stuff usually involving guns he is a crack shot and

a genuine good ol' boy.......... Dukes of Hazard style

he made me laugh years ago as he said he "was only interested in guns

and money!"

he says things like that as he is not politically correct too!

That's why we all get on we're all old Johnnies!

Kev and Nic have been friends since school days - always abusing each

other with vulgar banter - the more cussing the better!

I'll dg the photo out - yep ARTILLERY! that explains them!!!!!!!!

the bigger the caliber the better 10inch was the biggest we had

Saturday!!!! - explains it all the shells etc........ the magazines full

of shells on the farm all that stuff!

Baillie

Hey Baillie, Did not know you were a master of pyrotechnics! And who

may I ask, are the two lovely ladies with you at the church?

Ian Baillie

Arrival - Nic in red with the radiation Batman scar on the back of his

head and his new van - a real tart! Love the lettering!

we had 3 such full of all the ordinance 1 ton!

you can see from Nics build that he is well built strength wise likeme

it probably goes back to the middle ages

my physique was developed drawing the long bow for a life time nic looks

just like a knight - you could see him swinging an axe or sword or some

pole weapon

Kev's pony tail Guy was a Royal Marine Bandsman for 3 years when a young

lad very smart - very hard grafting under pressure - gets the job done

great chap.......his partner has memories of being a red Indian squaw

another coincidence not?

Ian Baillie

George you old reprobate - it is them!!!!!!!!!!!

Kev gave me the vital clues last Saturday when doing the fireworks

10 trips to the South - all over but mentioned Tennessee 3 times and

Lookout mountain twice

white helmet just like the white hat in the picture

Southern with a capital S in laid back style - Officer quality despite

this life's poker hand

also the dynamic between them buddies since the first grade

Nic is the Sgt barking orders very precise Kev the Officer laid back but

intense at getting the job done - careful - real careful with the shells

biggest were 10 inch!

yep case solved - am getting photos of when they had moustaches

Nic's was so much like in the picture

all Johnnies together!!!!!!!!! yeah! Hell'va outfit too

Rutledge's Battery 1st Tennessee Light artillery changed name to

Mclung's in 1862 when they amalgamated went through the whole shooting

match Taken at Nashville July 4 1861

Nic is 3 the Sgt! same even with no moustache and a lot older

Kev is 5 the Lt Colonel

very distinctive white hat - his trade mark check the nose and shape of

face

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: KevNov2005.jpg : actual size 8k : encoded size 10k, was included here ]

Interesting thing is looking at the history the battery was in

Charleston SC same time as the 5th Georgia 1863

and at Saltvile Virginia where the 5th Ga Cav ended up in 1864 so we

could have met! given my love of cannon - helping the artillery up Brush

mountain in the Kennesaw campaign June 1864

and watching the CSS Nashville get blown out the water I would have

talked to them about that.....

we could have known each other from previous

I've been friends with Gun shop Nic for 20 odd years

he runs Universal fireworks and a garage plus several other businesses -

real American ethos guy

intense as the photo shows

also other news got the job as Head of Science at Wellesley House school

Head offered it me this morning

knew I would get it when I realised that his name Richard R Steel ( R R

Steel) stood for Rail road steel!!!!!!!!!!! _ it's 1879 and Baillie is

working on the Central of Georgia railroad !)

so sign post from beyond - meant to be

all green lights

Your's confederately

Baillie permission to whooop!

Toy soldier show in London was really good yesterday

Ian Baillie

Yes sir - will do!

we get the little grey fellows in our back garden.......

was a time when you popped 'em in a pie!

that's how come the minute men beat the British with them ther' squirrel

rifles

1776 and all that

it was cold here last week but warmed up a little now just damp and grey

plus rain today

typical Brit weather!!!!!!!!

we hate that too!!!!!!!

Harriet did an hour snow boarding a three ski instructing this morning

I did and hour skiing in the rain - good on the mat for the skis - fast!

- but got a bit wet

just put up the Christmas tree

Looked at my synchronicity timeline and the new job equates with Baillie

Kell moving to Americus to work on the railroad 1879 - bang on schedule!

Rome and Carrolton Railroad got taken over 1878 just like our merger

except we were doing the taking over this year......

so Baillie up sticks and went to work for the Central of Georgia

Railroad - meant living away and all

good times lasted until he was 60 just like this will - I think!???

feel's exciting - be my own boss again and the extra cash will mean we

can support Harriet through college and also come see y'all

my ace card this time though is I married Pauline (Sallie) so I won't

end up on my lonesome scratchin' in the dirt like Baillie last time

no sir - game plan is working through

Had to get married this time round all else follows

What ever happens Paul so long as you got each other - you're the

richest man alive

least way I think so

Love those kids - Christmas is all about them! We will be getting the

train set out - good excuse

like all those idyllic childhood Christmas' of yore

either the train set or the slot car track....

we've done that ever year since Harriet was little

now she's a string bean!

precious times they go so fast.........

Here's us three in France Easter

And here's what you should wear in the snow!

none of those sissy girlie warm clothes!!!!!!!!!

But real mans' stuff!

Yes ok! Its snowed 4" yesterday and 2-3 more overnight! I hate t hat

damn stuff!!

Yesterday at the store! A visitor and t he damn snow!

George

Ian BaillieUnlike my brother in Kilts in the snow, in December 1982 I used to ride

a snow-machine with sandals and shorts on up at camp on in mayfield NY.

Still probably could but would need serious anti-freeze in them thar

veins before departure into the wilds.

PS How are those CD"S??

No beard, no moustache, and no brains! But I had a lot of joy riding

around that way! Cave man instinct must have been. Baillie,

No only a few customers on Saturday and we work around calls quite

well together. Was a distinct honor and pleasure to speak with you!

Same here with the voice and face. But you sound more like a Southron

Virginian than an Englishman! The accent was prevalent still during

the 1800's because of the immigration to the Colonies. I have no

problem understanding that accent. Its bloody damn familiar somehow.

Here is the show which originates in the UK that we watch religiously

Yes it is on Sky satellite but won't don't have that - if we used

to...... but less time now to watch as Harriet is older

I used to be an avid fan of "Sighting" That's when I first saw Echoes of

The Battlefield with Barbara Lane

started the ball rolling and things went from there

X Files the "Field" episode 1997 was a premonition of my own journey and

discovery 2 years later 1999

all meant to be!

We really are brothers.........

cool way to go

CD's are great - can't tell you how much so - WORDS JUST AIN'T BIG

ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Instant time travel.........for me sitting round the campfire singing

songs was the best bit of the whole darn shootin match

that GD wood smoke........ and black powder takes me back there

instantly

we really were a band of brothers

native to the soil too!

Yes glad you can understand my Brit accent - a linguistic program on TV

show people living in the Chesapeake Bay area in splendid rural

isolation and they had West country accents!!!!!!!!!

nothing changed for 400 years - so your observation my dear fellow is as

sharp as ever!

I was described in letters as a "high toned gentleman"

shame I didn't have the cash to back that up - could have married Sallie

like snapping my fingers

like moths to the flame - fatal attraction - what is it with the men

women thing! sure as hell cain't live without it - not easy living with

it!!!!!! - shootin' Yankees was simple by comparison

present company excepted - beggin the General's pardon - no offence

Yep - Sharps carbine then a 3 band Enfield did the talking

funny you like the 1851 Colt Navy .36 too.....

a Gentleman's weapon for personal defence

elegant made a wooden one when I was ( fired out the window using 1/2

amp fuse wire and the mains - black powder from a fire cracker) just

wanted to see it work!

The I got me the plastic model kit of one - that series aurora I think

definitely American - they made the horror movie models too like Dracula

and Frankenstein along with the six barrelled pepper pot pistol

even machined and filed the hammer for one in metal work aged 15

in the end I gave up as it was too big a job so used the hammer trigger

workings from a pirate flintlock cap pistol for my musket

worked a treat!

happy day no money no sense - ain't much changed there!

just inventiveness and a will of iron to manifest the past

then I joined the pistol club and it was the first pistol I bought in

1984

Uberti Westerners arms model .36 Colt Navy Octagonal barrel

still got it although I shoot my Colt Walker .44 most times - love the

bang - just like a broadside from a battleship - six shots too awesome

54 grains of black powder

the Colt Army .44 is an altogether more elegantly balanced weapon - a

true Cavalry pistol.....two of those and the reins in your teeth

come out of nowhere

hitt'em hard

and disappear

Bedford Forrest style

Beats walking slowly uphill against cannon any day.......

but like all things only the Infantry can take and hold ground

so it's all a lot of wind and piss!

Hats off to the PBI - the Poor Bloody Infantry

since time immemorial they have slogged the Earth the hard way

Just as I was General William Baillie in charge of the Scottish Infantry

1638 to 1648

I know the cost only too well........

seems to me that we really are the same - both chasing Sallie!

I was Infantry 1600's then Cavalry 1860's but didn't get the girl

you were probably Cavalry 1600's then Infantry 1860's and got the girl -

but lost her due to no darn overcoat - even worse!!!!!!

I know what it is like to lose too

Montrose kicked my butt more by luck than judgement - but he is recorded

as the great hero and Baillie the poor sap

Our victory at Marston Moor conveniently forgotten by the English who

chose to Lionise Cromwell instead...... - quite right too! I loved that

son of B......... Religious fanatic - sharing the fray with one and

all....

Just like Old Blue lights himself

probably why I identify with Jackson so strongly

could almost have been Cromwell himself - perhaps it was ??? Now there's

a thought!

Well time to saddle up

off to the Carol Service in Ashford Parish Church

kids and carols - don't get any more tear jerking than that!

Love it!

To the top of the hill Sir!!!!!!!!

Unlike my brother in Kilts in the snow, in December 1982 I used to ride

a snow-machine with sandals and shorts on up at camp on in mayfield NY.

Still probably could but would need serious anti-freeze in them thar

veins before departure into the wilds.

PS How are those CD"S??

No beard, no moustache, and no brains! But I had a lot of joy riding

around that way! Cave man instinct must have been.

Ian BaillieDig into you Germanic mind and celebrate the solstice

December 21st with fire and ale

and a good ol' hog roast

June will be here in a blink...

time is speeding up

well our consciousness is accelerating

so it appears to have sped up

learn to love what you hate

if you love the weekend - do something cool every Wednesday - you look

forward to that and then POW! it's the weekend again

My Viking mind loves Winter........... the longships are all hauled up

and we sit around the fire toasting the spoils of the previous summer

campaign and telling stories of old - sagas and tales of daring do.....

wears my horn of ale!!!!!!!! Make and repair ring mail shield and sword

and frolic with the blonde haired lady folk

yep - don't get any better than that memory!!!!!!!!!

ian aka Ragnar Hairy-breeks!!!!!!!!!! God jul!

LAst Day??? Is it June already?

My God I wish this damn winter was over with! How I do miss the warm

breezes of summer.

I used to be an avid fan of "Sighting" That's when I first saw Echoes

of

The Battlefield with Barbara Lane

started the ball rolling and things went from there

X Files the "Field" episode 1997 was a premonition of my own journey

and

discovery 2 years later 1999

all meant to be!

time to get ready for the last official day of school....

Baillie,

No only a few customers on Saturday and we work around calls quite

well together. Was a distinct honor and pleasure to speak with you!

Same here with the voice and face. But you sound more like a Southron

Virginian than an Englishman! The accent was prevalent still during

the 1800's because of the immigration to the Colonies. I have no

problem understanding that accent. Its bloody damn familiar somehow.

Here is the show which originates in the UK that we watch

religiously
