Rest in Peace Sgt. Baker.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

Rest in peace Sgt. Baker. I'll keep you, your family, friends and co-workers in my thoughts and prayers.


A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
