Yes Towanda has been MIA...it would be fun if she lurked and found out she was still getting pings. 8D

Two Thirds and I have not bumped into each other for quite awhile. I hope he is doing well. Always admired his bicycling stories.

Maybe in a year or so after I retire and I am driving across country I will stop in Colorado and drink a cup of coffee on that deck on the back of Two Thirds house. We have talked about doing that for fifteen years.

I prayed for FrogMom. I’ll keep her close in prayer for a few days.

God bless her and her family and everyone who comes in contact with her.

Hey there, KC!!

Good to see you too! All is well here. Been doing lots of projects, and my Darlin’ has increased computer time, so not as much FReep time available! But it all works out.

One of these days, we really will fire up the other computer!

This last year or so hasn’t been my time with the most opportunity to follow the site either.

As usual, I have to trust that amom (who knows everyone) will keep me appraised of important issues. (How does she do that?)

Speaking of IMPORTANT issues, FrogMom and her husband were such gracious hosts to me on a visit to their area a few years back. My youngest was stationed down there and I was dropping by to see him as well as to access some construction in the area. We had a great time meeting each other after the previous decade of fellowship on the site.

FogMom should know that I have wonderful confidence in her and her whole family being able to give this rehab challenge a top-drawer effort. I certainly don’t underestimate that this is a big big challenge, but I know what my 90 year old father achieved and I know the good people in the rehab efforts at medical facilities.

We are pulling for you FrogMom!

Hello all - Please bear with me if I am doing this wrong. This is Beth, moms youngest daughter. I just spent a great part of the day with Mom and wanted to give you all an update on her progress. Let me tell you, Mom is one heck of a lady! She is working very hard during her therapy sessions and is improving constantly. She has spent a lot of time walking back and forth on the parallel bars, doing a variety of hand and arm exercises, and is looking and feeling great! Of course she is still frustrated her right hand isn’t working like she wants it to, but it is getting better. We have started (at her request) letting her go solo at night, no troubles there, she is sleeping well. I guess that is all I have at this time, will try to send you guys an update in a couple of days, unless she beats me to it.
Thank you all so very much for the prayer support, it means a great deal to Mom and our entire family. God bless the lot of you.

Thank you God for being with Frogmom during her time of need and pleas bring her comfort. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Thanks so much Beth. Tell your mom that the rehab for rotator cuff surgery is six weeks so tell her to work hard but remember it takes time for those new pathways to get permanent in her nerve memory.

Tell her another sixty posts have been added and we “have her back.”

Time for a dose of humor.

Having just moved into his new office, a pompous, new colonel was sitting at his desk when an airman knocked on the door.

Conscious of his new position, the colonel quickly picked up the phone, told the airman to enter, then said into the phone, “Yes, General, I’ll be seeing him this afternoon and I’ll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, sir.”

Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he asked, “What do you want?”

“Nothing important, sir,” the airman replied, “I’m just here to hook up your telephone.”

And one more (special for FrogDad).

Two men were boasting to each other about their old army days.

“Why, my outfit was so well drilled,” declared one, “that when they presented arms all you could hear was slap, slap, click.”

“Very good,” conceded the other, “but when my company presented arms you’d just hear slap, slap, jingle.”

“What was the jingle?” asked the first. “Oh,” replied the other offhand, “just our medals.”

Thank you for the update Beth. The fact that your Mom was able to type her update and make it coherent shows how determined she is. She’s going to be okay. I can feel it. Thank God for good doctors who know so much more about treating stroke victims. We will continue to pray for her recovery and for patience to stay the course during therapy. Prayers also for her family as they cheer her on. God bless all of you.

OK boys and girls. It’s THAT time again. Time for a little humor.

An F-111 was flying escort with a B-52 and generally making a nuisance of himself by flying rolls around the lumbering old bomber.

The message for the B-52 crew was, “Anything you can do, I can do better.”

Not to be outdone, the bomber pilot announced that he would rise to the challenge.

The B-52 continued its flight, straight and level, however.

Perplexed, the fighter pilot asked, “So? What did you do?”

“We just shut down two engines.”

And one for the road...

Army fitness report
British Military Officer Fitness Reports

The British Military writes OFR’s (officer fitness reports). The form used for Royal Navy and Marines fitness reports is the S206. The following are actual excerpts taken from people’s “206’s”....

- His men would follow him anywhere, but only out of curiosity.

- I would not breed from this Officer.

- This Officer is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definitely won’t-be.

- When she opens her mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there.

- He has carried out each and every one of his duties to his entire satisfaction. - He would be out of his depth in a car park puddle.

- Technically sound, but socially impossible.

- This Officer reminds me very much of a gyroscope - always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere.

- This young lady has delusions of adequacy.

- When he joined my ship, this Officer was something of a granny; since then he has aged considerably.

- This Medical Officer has used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my officers to carry him from bar to bar.

- Since my last report he has reached rock bottom, and has started to dig.

- She sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.

- He has the wisdom of youth, and the energy of old age.

- This Officer should go far - and the sooner he starts, the better.

- In my opinion this pilot should not be authorized to fly below 250 feet.

- The only ship I would recommend this man for is citizenship.

- Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap

- This man is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot.

Now for the daily dose...of humor.

A very shy guy goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the other end. After an hour of gathering up his courage he finally goes over to her and asks, tentatively, “Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?” To which she responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, “No, I won’t sleep with you tonight!” By now, the entire bar is staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table. After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, “I’m sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I’m a graduate student in psychology and I’m studying how people respond to embarrassing situations.” To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, “What do you mean $200!”

Hey there FrogMom. Miss you and hope you are doing better today than yesterday. Know we keep you and yours in our prayers.

Now for some humor:

DURING a readiness exercise, my friend Jim and I, Air Force security policemen, were guarding entry to a bunker-like structure where aircrafts were kept.

When a pilot about to do a preflight check approached without his identification in plain view, Jim asked him for it.

“I don’t see why I have to show you my ID,” the pilot snapped. “After all, it is my plane.”

“Sir, with all due respect, it may be your plane,” replied Jim, “but it’s sitting in my garage!”

Now for a dose of humor to hopefully help you recover.

Things to Remember During a War

1. The only things more accurate than enemy fire is friendly fire.

2. Try to look unimportant, they may be low on ammo.

3. Teamwork is essential. It gives them more targets to shoot at.

4. No inspection-ready unit ever passed combat.

5. No combat-ready unit ever passed inspection.

6. Remember: your aircraft was made by the lowest bidder.

7. Never draw fire, it will irritate the rest of your formation.

8. Never share a cockpit with someone braver than you.

9. You are not Tom Cruise.

10. SAMs and AAA have the right-of-way.

11. If you aren’t sure, the SAMs are pointed at you.

12. If hit, landing near the people that just shot you down is not a good idea.

13. Close only counts in horseshoes, nukes and proximity-fused missiles.

14. Smart bombs have bad days too.

15. The best defense is to stay out of range.

16. If you are short on everything but enemy, you are in combat.
