    Thanks everybody, it's nice to see the brotherhood, and sisters, is still alive and well. Capt Henry was very understanding about everything and told me to let them know if we needed anything.

    FFI - I hope your wife bounces back and the rest of the pregnancy goes off well.....I've forgotten - is this your first? Any pregnancy can be scary, but the first I think is the worst!

    Best wishes to you both - now take care of your Lady! ..... I've gotten my husband fairly well trained - came home to the laundry done, kitchen cleaned and even my daughter had cleaned up a LOT of stuff!....oh, dinner was made too!

    Nah, this is our third. What worries us is that she didn't have hardly any hard times with the first two. We're hoping that her being so tired all the time to begin with is a sign that it's a boy this time. We'll see. I just worry about her having to take antibiotics and hydrocodone, or whatever that cough supressant is called. She'll bounce back, we just worry about the baby. I hope her second trimester straightens out when it gets here. I know she does.

    Anyway, prayers for Jess would be appreciated, she's got the flu and bronchitis on top of being pregnant. I hope nothing happens to our baby.

    Adam,

    I've been away for a day or two, I'm sorry that I had not responded sooner. I hope that your wife and you will be just fine. I will pray for fast recovery. I know I'm 5 plus hrs away, but if you need anything or if there is anything that I can do, please feel free to drop me a line.
    Stay Safe

    We're counting our blessings up here because we didn't get the dumper-load of snow that was being called for.

    Ooops, sorry COT, all is well. Been busy, busy. She's feeling A LOT better now. The flu and bronchitis are gone. The pregnancy, well, still rough. But not as bad as it was. Again, thank you all for the support and well wishes. Hope all is well with everyone on here.

    Question

    Why can't young people, as well as older folks now, say a simple sentence, without inserting the word "like", 15 times?

    Better yet, why the hell can't my new ****** bag of a Sgt talk to us without saying "you know" and "good to go" every other word. I really can't stand this guy. He's been in for nine years and passed up for Staff twice, wonder why .

    Sometimes I thank God I'm a Cpl, for some reason within my MOS you somehow lose your brain when you pick up that third stripe. I really, really hope I don't turn into a zombie idiot like the rest when I pin on Sgt.

    Take it easy on us Sgts. You know they remove part of our brains when we get promoted. If you think that's bad, you ought to hear what they do to you when you make Lt.!

    Loved it after I got my blood stripe. Bruised thighs and all when promoted. Hit Sgt., and everything seemed good and right with the world. Hit SSgt, and, whoa, nothing to do, nothing asked to do. Just a body out wandering around. Hit Gunny, and the rush came back. I got to play with the toys again, on my terms.

    I've had good Sgt's, don't get me wrong boys. I can't wait to pin that third stripe on. And yeah, I still get that swell of pride when I put my blues on and I see that beautiful stripe on my leg and EGA on my buckle. Nothing like being an NCO and responsible for the young guys. But, for some reason my platoon has had a bunch of "special" people for Sgt's. Weirdest thing I ever did see, haha.

    I just hope I don't lose my mind when I pin, I hope I remain unchanged. These guys here don't really look out for their juniors, that's what I live for. I'm here for my junior Marines, not to see what I can slide by with for the day.

    Unbroken- A WWII Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption- Hillenbrand

    I started this book yesterday afternoon and could not put ti down till I went to bed around 10:30 last night. I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and will be finishing it today. I don't think I can find any adjectives that would do this book justice. If you have not read this book yet, beg, borrow, or buy a copy and read it.


    On another note-we just had a tornado warning issued for the county next to mine. I know we hare currently having one very nasty wet, windy storm.
