Truthfully my British-born husband and I just take as many of both as we can get! We were quite pleasantly surprised back in the ’90’s when retirement years came along. We found that Sammy was eligible for some retirement from the UK’s treasury because of service time he had spent in the British Merchant Marines. Way back yonder – before 1951 when he came to the USA. It’s not much but it was a welcome surprise. He was active in that endeavor during World War II, when many ships were carrying soldiers to various locations. He saw the world in those days – before settling down with me in the good ole USA, Oklahoma State.
Right now he is watching American football. OU/UCLA 21/7 OU favor. Can it hold? We’ll know in about an hour. 😀
