Re: My Job, My Hell...

It is Sunday again!! Lucky me, we are going back to Dean's parents house for Sunday diner. Unfortunately my Father and Mother are attending. I'm going to leave my EDC in the truck.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well I am still trying to figure out why I caught a spoon to the head, along with Dean, Jeff and Tony. Now I know exactly why Tony (as he lives to say he was a Marine, then he changed branches and went Air Force) caught the spoon. Gilt by association. you know him, so somehow you share in the blame...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

A life lesson one of the things you possibly should not do, still can come back to haunt you decades later. We attend the local Catholic church with Dean's parents, unfortunately so does all of his sisters, their significant others as well as their children also attend. The mass is held in Spanish, ...

Another Lil, Sam and some of their female cousins: Lil: Did you pack a swimsuit? Me: No. Sam: Why not? Lil: I told you to pack a swimsuit. Me: I have zero plans to swim in sewer water.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

This is the tale of Teenie Weenie. Lil made Master Sergeant (the first time) and then had to attend the Air Force Senior NCO Academy located at Maxwell AFB–Gunter Annex in Alabama. It was just a 30 day school and I was floating around Fort Benning, Ga. So one of the few free weekends before she grad...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I earned two pops to the back of the head nearly simultaneously for this bit of fatherly advice when my son was heading to the desert for his first deployment. I gave my son three knives when we met him at Norfolk Naval Station airfield. One was a used Case Ka-Bar, the other was a Gerber MKII that I...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

In all honesty I should point out that I never dated, or had a girlfriend until Lil, I had been in the Army for 9 years, from the age of 16, we ended up getting married when I was 25 and she was 18. I also never realized that I was courting her, until she told me. It has been a good 40 years, I don'...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

One of the big lessons I get from reading Laager's posts is that pissing off a woman from the Philippines is never a good idea. It's like they have a special talent for whacking the crap out of you. I do believe that you are correct. I once asked my son if he was gay (he was 25 and never showed up ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Recently Lil was lucky enough to catch me chewing on grunt candy. Actually one of the grandchildren ratted me out. So I got pretty much the same speech she always gave back in the day. She thought I was chewing on breath mints. Lil: This is a "Controlled Substance"!! Your name isn't even on the bot...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Speaking of getting mouthy with cops, I'm reminded of an incident that happened at the first and only rodeo I've ever been to. Which now that I think about it, was almost 30 years ago. The short story is my dad got drunk, decided to get into an argument with my mother as we're leaving the rodeo are...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Let's just say that the The Democratic Justice Party (DJP) was not democratic or had much of any justice to it, which led to the June Struggle some years later. It always amazed me to watch Americans get caught up in some kind of mess that involved another nations police force. You think LEOs are b...

Bahaaha!!I'm guessing the quonset huts were up in "Dragon Valley"? Good story - different eras, but some things never change. Duct tape being one of them. I tried to watch that bmw clip, but couldn't get it to play. They only made the R90/6 for three years; 1974-76. Mine is a '76. So I'd really lik...
