EVERYBODY!

MORNING

TROOPS!

 

Cubs    19 WINS      37  LOSSES

 

 

I was explaining to my wife last night that when you die you get reincarnated but must come back as a different creature.
She said she would like to come back as a cow. I said, “You’re obviously not listening”.

SOUP FOR THE TROOPS

WELCOME TO

(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.
Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Ma, for preparing the Canteen for today's activities

The 113th Wing provides air sovereignty forces
to defend the nation's capital

Oh yeah! I bet
these guys are the ones that took off on 9/11.

~ Today... Sunny this morning...
Then partly sunny with scattered showers
with isolated thunderstorms this afternoon.
Highs in the upper 70s. West winds around 5 mph.
Chance of rain 30 percent.

~ Tonight... Mostly cloudy with scattered showers
with isolated thunderstorms in the evening...
Then partly cloudy after midnight.
Lows in the upper 50s. West winds around 5 mph.
Chance of rain 30 percent.

Making Z Zoup
A pinch of this...a dash of that...

The first actress known to wear trousers was Sarah Bernhardt in 1876.

Gene Wilder made his film debut in a small, but memorable, role
as a hostage in the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde.

(ah...anyone remember him there?)

Murderer John Horwood was hanged on April 13, 1821.
His skin was used to bind a book describing
the dissection of his body by surgeon Richard Smith.

(Ga-ross...yuk)(hmm...they had murders back then? I thought it was pretty lawless)

Giant hornet workers capture a variety of insects,
including bees and yellowjackets, to feed their young.
Workers strip back bark from shrubs – a favorite is lilac.
As they girdle the branches, they lick the sap from the torn edge.

Golf was banned in England and Scotland
in 1457 by King James II because he claimed
it distracted people from the archery practice necessary for national defense.

(ha! I bet it was because everyone beat him...hehe)

Still trying to catch up.
Got meeting with bossman this morning,
so of course it'll be another quick post and run.
But, you stay right where you are.
Keep the troops entertained and the Canteen clean...
Cause...if you don't...I'll tell Ma!

Come in and sit for a while.

There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

PLEASE REMEMBER THEM ....

Greetings FRiends, from the Old Soldier's House in the Sunshine State!

I am using a combined ping list from the Canteen and the Viking Kitties, and a host of other invitees, to alert everybody of a momentous, life-altering event, that I simply must share with the world!

SARGE IS ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED!!!

The woman I cryptically referred to in the Canteen as “The GF” has just become “The Bride”!

The Bride is an Air Force medic, a retired NCO like me. She was a flight medic for 21 yrs., and worked in the VA Hospital system as an ER Tech for 9 yrs. She is now a Parole Officer with the County Sheriff.

I first met The Bride online, and we corresponded for several weeks until our first date, on Valentine's Day. Over the following months, as we grew closer, we both realized that this was the real thing, and there was no sense in pretending it was anything else. So on Tuesday evening, Sarge presented The Bride with the ring, asked The Question, and the rest is about to become history.

The Bride is fiercely patriotic, like me. She’s a veteran of Desert Storm and the GWOT, also like me. She was abroad in Saudi, twice to Turkey, once to the Azores and once to Guam. She was never in the hot zone, but she did patch up the holes and tears the enemy left behind.

Along with a new wife, I am getting a new family. The Bride has a son and two daughters from a previous marriage, and a grandbaby from the son. I’m going to have a teenage daughter! God help me!

The tentative plan is, the wedding will be in October, on the beach of Sanibel Island, at sunset. It will be a very small deal, with only family attending. The Bride’s son will be the best man, and the two girls will be bridesmaids. The Bride will wear ivory or eggshell; Sarge will be in charcoal-grey.

Over the summer and towards the fall, there will be pics forthcoming for all to see. And the official wedding pics will be posted in the Canteen (yes, I will most likely hijack the thread), so basically, you are all virtually invited!

Sarge will report in later, so Let's Have Fun!

Old Sarge ~ I’m going to have a teenage daughter!

Darksheare ~ Dear Merciful Hordes of the Undead Thread! You just may be DOOOoooOoOOOooOoOooOMMMMmmmmeeed..* *said in dramatic voice into deep coffee mug*

Congrats!

Congratulations! You are now the proud new owner of a teenaged daughter.

Please read this manual carefully, as it describes the maintenance of your new daughter and answers important questions about your warranty (which does NOT include the right to return the product to the factory for a full refund.)

IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR TEENAGER IN ERROR

To determine whether you were supposed to receive a teenaged girl, please examine your new daughter carefully.

Does she:

a) Look very similar to your original daughter, only with more makeup and less clothing?
b) Refuse to acknowledge your existence on the planet Earth (except when requesting money)?
c) Sleep in a burrow of dirty laundry?

If any of these are true, you have received the correct item. Nice try, though.

BREAK-IN PERIOD

When you first receive your teenaged daughter, you will initially experience a high level of discomfort. Gradually, this discomfort will subside, and you will merely feel traumatized. This is the "Break-in Period," during which you are becoming accustomed to certain behaviors that will cause you concern, anxiety, and stress. Once you have adapted to these behaviors, your teenager will start acting even worse.

ACTIVATION

To activate your teenaged daughter, simply place her in the vicinity of a telephone or Instant Messenger. No further programming is required.

SHUTDOWN

Several hours after activation, you may desire to shut down your teenaged daughter. There is no way to do this.

CLEANING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

Having a teenaged daughter means learning the difference between the words "clean" and "neat." Teenaged daughters are very clean, because they take frequent showers that last more than an hour. They will scrub themselves with expensive, fragrant soaps that you must purchase for them because like I'm sure I'm going to use like the same kind of soap my mom and dad use. When they have completely drained the hot-water tank, they will step out and wrap themselves in every towel in the bathroom, which they will subsequently strew throughout the house. If you ask them to pick up the towels, you are confusing "clean" with "neat." Teenagers are very busy and do not have time to be neat. They expect others to pick up after them. These others are called "parents."

FEEDING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

Your teenaged daughter requires regular meals, which must be purchased for her at restaurants because she detests everything you eat because it is like so disgusting. She does not want you to accompany her to these restaurants, because some people might see you and like I'm sure I want my friends to see me eating dinner with my parents. Either order take-out food or just give her the money, preferably both. If you order pizza, never answer the doorbell because the delivery boy might see you and ohmigod he is so hot. Yes, your daughter's idea of an attractive man is the pizza boy.

CLOTHING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

Retailers make millions of dollars a year selling stylish and frankly sensible clothing that will look adorable on your daughter. If you enjoy shopping, you will love the vast selections that are available to you. Unfortunately, your teenaged daughter wants to dress like a lap dancer. You may be able to coerce her into putting on a cute outfit before leaving the house, but by the time she walks in the schoolhouse door, she will be wearing something entirely different.

OTHER MAINTENANCE

Teenaged daughters require one of two levels of maintenance: "High," and "Ultra High." Your daughter is "Ultra High." This means that whatever you do won't be enough and whatever you try won't work.

WARRANTY

This product is not without defect because she has your genes, for heaven's sake. If you think this is not fair, talk to your parents, who think it is hilarious. Your teenaged daughter will remain a teenager for as long as it takes for her to become a woman, which in her opinion has already happened and as far as you are concerned never really will. If you are dissatisfied with your teenaged daughter, well, what did you expect? In any event, your warranty does not give you your little girl back under any circumstances, except that deep down she's actually still there - you just have to look for her.

Congratulations on the brave new relationship.

Best words I can give you on marriage are these:
Do, or do not; there is no try.

Carve that into the deepest part of your soul and you'll be a stellar husband and father.

Well, we got some much needed rain in parts of Oklahoma the last couple of days.

On Tuesday we actually had a storm move through with some wind and rain. Our power went out twice for a couple of second after the storm went through.

Some places got over 3 to 4 inches of rain Ringling, which is West of Ardmore 3.35 inches.

There were Flash Flood Warnings issued for the Ardmore OK area.

It's still raining in parts of Southern Okla but not as heavy as the last couple of days. It's supposed to dry out on Friday.

I will have to do some lawnmowing tomorrow or Saturday. Grass always grows after each rain event.

Was not able to take Bo to the lake due to the rain yesterday. May do so later today, weather permitting.

Not much else is going on.

Good afternoon, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Very tired today - had a vigorous PT session last night. Hit the office this morning at 6:15 - leaving this evening at 7:00. Should be home in time to hit the Canteen at 9:00. Hope everything is going well with you!

Knock on wood...so far today the phones are leaving me alone and I am working my way through the stack that always must wait until after checks are printed.

Two days to myself will really help on all the backed up stuff. Fingers crossed. LOL!

Drive very carefully after working all those hours. *HUGS*
