THEY CALL ME KRUNCH DOG WHEN I, AM, ON MY PAPA'S CB RADIO, AKA, CHAMBERLAIN, AKA, JOSHUA, WHEN MY MAMA GETS MAD AT ME WHICH ISN'T TOO OFTEN CAUSE I KNOW HOW TO GET AROUND HER.
I HELP MY PAPA WHEN HE IS FIXING RADIOS. NO KIDDING, WHEN HE PUTS ME UP ON THE BENCH AND STARTS TUNING UP THE RADIO IF I HEAR HIM SAY AUDIO AUDIO I HIT A HIGH NOTE THAT WILL MAKE THE METER GO OFF THE SCALE. YEP AND EVERBODY THINKS IT SO FUNNY. ANN BOY SHOULD SEE THE SWING. WHEN THEY HEAR IT CB'RS AROUND HERE SAY "YOUR RADIO ANT WORTH A THING WITHOUT THAT KRUNCH DOG SWING"
WHEN MY PAPA PUTS ME UP ON THE BENCH AND PUTS THAT D104 IN FRONT OF ME, THEN HE FLIPS A SWITCH THATS CONNECTED TO THIS BIG BOX, AND HE SAYS AUDIO I HIT THAT NOTE AGAIN, WELL,ITS BEEN SAID, THEY CAN HEAR ME FROM JACSONVILL TO MIAMI. WELLL THAT STRECHING IT SOMEWHAT.. BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.
DO YOU KNOW WHO JOSHUA LAWRENCE CHAMBERLAIN WAS AND WHO I AM NAMED AFTER? READ MY STORY.
IF YOU ARE A CIVIL WAR BUFF YOU WILL LOVE IT.
IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG AT LITTLE ROUND TOP YOU WILL LOVE IT
IF YOU KNOW NOTHING OF THESE THINGS, READ IT ANYWAY ITS A GOOD STORY.
THEN GO AND GET Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels (which was made into the movie Gettysburg, with Jeff Daniels portraying Chamberlain). ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ AND YES I CAN READ.
BETTER YET, RENT THE MOVIE.
PICKETS CHARGE AT THE END WILL MAKE YOUR HEART STOP.
IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES TO THIS COUNTRIES DARKESTS TIME IN HISTORY, AMERICANS KILLING AMERICANS AND THE TERRIBLE LOSS WE SUFFERED ON BOTH SIDES DURING THE CIVIL WAR. AND THAT WAS ONLY ONE BATTLE.
ON MARCH 1 2000 CHAMBERLAIN DIED. ONE MINUTE HE WAS JUMPING AND PLAYING AND THE NEXT HE WAS GONE ALL IN A MINUTE. I SAW THE LIFE GO OUT OF HIS EYES AT MY FEET. THAT PICTURE IS EMBEDDED IN MY MIND FOREVER. IT HAS TAKEN ME MONTHS TO PUT THIS ON HIS PAGE. IT HAS TAKEN ME MONTHS JUST TO GO INTO HIS PAGE WITHOUT THE TEARS, AND EVEN NOW AS I WRITE THIS THEY ARE FLOWING. HIS LOSS WAS DEVASTATING AND I STILL GRIEVE. I KNOW I HAVE TO LET GO BUT THE PAIN OF LOSS IS STILL WITH ME YOU WERE MY BABY, THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, YOU KISSED MY TEARS WHEN I WAS SAD AND REJOICED WITH US WHEN WE WERE HAPPY. YOU GAVE ME MORE LAUGHTER AND JOY, LOVE AND LOYALTY THAT NO ONE WOULD UNDERSTAND, UNLESS THEY KNEW YOU. MY SWEET SWEET PRECIOUS CHAMBERLAIN I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART. AND YOU WILL NEVER BE FAR FROM MY MIND.
DEAR LORD, Help me to deal with the loss of my baby. Its been more then 2 years now and the pain will not cease and I cannot stop the tears I was not ready to give him up and he was not ready to go.
SO I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT YOU WENT ACROSS THAT BRIDGE
THE RAINBOW BRIDGE Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hand again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together. . . Author Unknown
