A Runaway Tongue

Please forgive me as I have not slept in something like 27 hours. I want to get this blog out because I have a lot to say and very little time in which to say it. First of all I want to send my heart felt sorrow to Rocky, She lost her sister in an accident two days ago and is understandably emotionally distraught, not to mention the fact that the Airmen she is in charge of, well, they aren’t the brightest in the bunch and there for make her life that much more complicated. I don’t really know how much I am allowed to say but to give you a little insight into how difficult things are for her the other day one of her enlisted airmen shot another airman in the foot because the guy wouldn’t give him a stick of gum. A freaking stick of gum! I wish there was something I could do or say to help her but all I can do is provide an ear to listen and a voice to console. I want to apologize publicly for saying something really stupid to Rocky like three days ago, I won’t go into details but trust me it was really stupid. And she will know what I am referring to as there are so few opportunities for me to say anything stupid. Actually the more I think about it I have been saying a lot of stupid things lately I got Hard Hat into a whole Heap of trouble over something I said on the radio. “….let me explain, no there is too much let me sum up” (a quote from my favorite movie.) the long and short of it is he wasn’t where he was supposed to be and I mentioned that very clearly over the radio. He was supposed to bring us food and instead he was with his girlfriend. I said we were all waiting for him and that he was AWOL and man did they get cranky…. Shoot I’m getting the boot I’ll write more soon…

Random Quote of the Blog:
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks nothing is worth war is much worse, the person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of ever being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill
Thank you Rocky for the quote!!!

So sorry to hear about Rocky's sister. Please tell her that she is in our prayers. I wouldtell her myself with a comment on her blog except that Gramps did something the other day that lost all of our bookmarks so I don't have her blog anymore. Luckily I still have yours in a folder so I was able to bookmark it again.

60 days and counting!!!

We have 16 boxes of books packed and the "For Sale" notices go up on the bulletin board this weekend. We think the sofa is already sold (we'll know for sure this weekend) and maybe Ken & Robyne want my club chair and the rest will be up for grabs.

Keep very safe!!!

We love you!!!
