(Update added below)
For the rest of his Naval career too apparently.
Because he did what he was ordered to do.
So, we don't know if this is actually what is going to happen but that was what was stated by the Chief ( not one of his Chiefs) on the message on the HOME PHONE ( I should've picked the darn phone up but wasn't sure the Chief wanted a Mommy giving him hell over the phone-yes, it makes me that "hot", but that's another topic.). ***on the…Continue

The “cloudy” situation.
Hmmm…well here is my little cloud that I had when going to PIR:
Okay…not really, but it’s almost as cute as that:…Continue
We make our way to Midway Ceremonial Drill Hall.
Of course I FORGOT to have my camera ready…so I am advising you to get that baby ready from the moment you step through those doors. There ARE photo ops (or should that be PHOTOPS?) all along the way to that security checkpoint.
So don’t miss it like I did!
When you enter the actual graduation grounds you will see Sailors and some SR (the ones performing for the PIR) all over.
Good luck trying to…Continue
Well, where was I?
We had just finished the M&G.
Plus, the silliness in between...don't worry...there WILL be more!
I tried to get some sleep.
For those of you that have been through it, y'all (I'm not…Continue

That's what I called her. She always started out with:
"Please fasten your seatbelts."
If I messed up and made a wrong turn, she never yelled at me, just said, "Recalculating."
In spite of the few times I got exasperated with her and said, "Where the heck ARE you taking me?"
Couldn't have done without her and had a moment of panic when I LOST her in a tunnel. Took awhile to get her back!
They served meatballs, egg rolls, veggies/dip and chips/salsa. Ramada gives those staying with them a voucher for two free drinks. Everyone else may purchase drinks. Food is free. I am told that they do not mind if you come in with a non-alcoholic drink or water.The boys ate their fill while their mom gabbed away ...ummm collected intel.
Naw...we gabbed! Got to see the Sailor who joined our…Continue

Start time was late. Just pooped.
I can’t even remember WHAT we were looking for, but we stumbled onto…the Silo!
Just had to try the Pizza!
We decided to get individuals so everyone could try it with their fave toppings.
The atmosphere is great. The pizza is very good. Nice thick crust with their tomato topping and your picks. We also shared a dinner salad. It’s hard to find places that have the individual dinner salads. Price…Continue
Need to feed the Team…all are suffering from caloric depletion.
I consult Miss GPS, but I think the hunger pangs are just causing a fog.
In me…not her.
So, I type in Wal-Mart hoping that it will bring us close to food.
Right about now an MRE would be good…or a Box Nasty (I think they are called Bag Nasty’s now.)
I cruise along and spot…Chili’s!
The Team is HAPPY!
We eat WAY too much…play with the little electronic…Continue

The flight went off without a hitch. I do suggest bringing your own snacks and definitely buying a bottled water once past security. We arrived hungry and THIRSTY. Beverages were free but we are big water drinkers.
It also helps to keep anything you want to “do” in your purse or smaller carry on. That way you don’t have to get into the one you’ve stored up top. I REALLY did not want to bonk anyone in the…Continue
